It’s hard to believe you would ever get tired of soaking up the sun, book in hand, whilst the kids build sandcastles on the shorelines of Byron Bay’s beautiful beaches, but if you do, you’ll be happy to know that family fun thrives all through the shire.
Dolphin Kayaking is the ideal activity for viewing Byron Bay from beyond the waves. Kiddies as young as 5yo can enjoy paddling in a group from Main Beach out to Wategos, taking in amazing signings of turtles, birdlife and dolphins!
Found just 20km south of Byron Bay, in the Hinterland estate of Knockrow, a fun-filled day of rabbit petting, goat feeding and bird watching awaits. Sip a coffee whilst the kids meet possums, feed emus and play mini golf. Rain, hail or shine, Macadamia Castle is the ideal family day out.
For a chilled out family day head to the charming allure of Crystal Castle, where an array of workshops and experiences can be enjoyed. Stand amid millions of tiny amethyst crystals inside the glistening “Enchanted Cave”, or for a truly Byron Bay experience, have your Aura photographed!
Circus Arts – Byron Bay
If your little one’s idea of family fun is indoor climbing walls, jumping castles and flying trapeze, you can watch them do this all from the Big Top Cafe’ at Circus Arts, located just 5 minutes drive from the town centre.
Bringing progressive sustainability into Byron Bay’s dining scene, “The Farm” is also a great day out for the family. It is here that the whole family can experience the operations of a working farm, pet adorable farm animals and enjoy delicious culinary goodness at the “Three Blue Ducks” restaurant.
Byron Bay Markets
Alive with rainbow coloured cheer and delicious street food from around the world, The Byron Bay Markets are an absolute must for the family activity itinerary. Held on the 1st Sunday of every month, the markets host an abundance of arts & crafts, vintage fashion, face painting, live music and so much more.
