Escape the crowds and discover the coast less travelled on this half day guided hike with Byron Bay Coastal Walks
40 minutes south of Byron, between the fishing town of Ballina and the seaside village of Lennox Head, is an incredible 13km guided walk that will take you across rivers, wetlands, secluded beaches and centuries old coastal dune vegetation.
Traverse spectacular headlands that will take your breath away. Souring 60m above the waves, it’s the perfect place to sit, find solitude and watch the whales pass by.
Choose to join a small group tour, or create your own private day trip! The choice is yours.
7.30 am Hotel pick up* and transfer to Ballina Wharf
8.30 am Setting off along the banks of the picturesque Richmond River, we pass the notorious bar & historic lighthouse as we learn all about Ballina’s history as a port town. Keep your eyes open for dolphins & turtles! Coffee lovers won’t be disappointed with morning tea at Shelly Beach Café – absolute beachfront & tucked below the Ballina Head lookout.
Continue on to Sharpes Beach via the “Cultural Way”, a section of dune vegetation that holds great significance for the Aboriginal people of this region. The next section of the walk is quite remote and the scenery truly breathtaking. It’s no wonder it’s a sought-after location used in TV, film & commercials; not to mention one of the best vantage points along the coast for spotting whales during their annual migration.
A gradual climb sees us atop the Lennox Point, known worldwide for its challenging sur break. Take a moment to savour the view to the Byron Lighthouse before heading down to the village of Lennox Head where you will find a wonderful selection of cafes, bars & retail outlets. Enjoy lunch and a swim at the surf club, boat channel or tea-tree lake before transferring back to your hotel.
We aim to have you back in Byron Bay by approximately 1.30 pm.
You will need: Comfortable walking shoes, day pack, water bottle, sunscreen, swimmers, towel, hat, camera, rain protection.
