Bangalow Hotel & Accommodation

Slip into the relaxed coastal lifestyle that northern NSW has to offer and stay in Bangalow, one of the Byron Shire's most idyllic inland spots. Boasting a range of uncrowded cafes, boutiques and pubs, the town's trendy streets are a refreshing change in pace from the bustling beaches of Byron.

Despite the town's proximity to Byron Bay, Bangalow is a quiet and relaxed east coast holiday spot, though Bangalow's population is known to boom particularly during the warmer months. Getting there is easy, whether you're flying into Byron Ballina or heading to Gold Coast Coolangatta Airport. Simply head to Byron and there's plenty of transfers available onto Bangalow.

With an incredibly picturesque countryside and great access to Byron's famous beaches, fall in love with Bangalow's relaxed atmosphere and take in the fresh regional air. Whether you're heading there for a short break, or making a stopover on the way from an all-encompassing road trip, Bangalow boasts peace and tranquility in spades.

Bangalow's main street is filled with boutique stores and cafes, making it a popular spot for holidaymakers taking a few hours rest from the sun, surf and sand of Byron. Whether you're searching for souvenirs or want to stop for coffee and soak up the town's charm, Bangalow's Byron Street doesn't disappoint.

If you've got flexible dates, be sure to time your visit around the Bangalow Market Day. With hundreds of stalls each month, sample cuisine from some of the community's finest food artisans and buy handcrafts from local artists.

Playing host to so many world-class festivals, Byron Bay's neighbouring towns are a fantastic base for accommodation at peak holiday periods. At just a few hours short of Brisbane and the Gold Coast, and only a few hours from the Great Barrier Reef, Bangalow is also a great entry point into Southern Queensland or a much larger holiday up the coast.

Why not hire a car and explore the Byron Shire at your own pace? Whether you're simply stopping over on a lengthy coastal road trip or looking for a brief sea change, Bangalow's charm make it a great spot for a range of different holidaymakers.
