Who can deny the appeal of a sleepy, surfer beach town rooted with counter cultural sensibilities and an emerging culinary scene? It seems that when it comes to gauging quality of life, Byron Bay has it all. From a vast, sprawl of hinterland that vary in climates and terrains, to a progressive yet pared down POV on lifestyle, Byron Bay is a place that does more than just serve as a backdrop for your holiday photos, it leaves an impression that’s hard to forget. The prized restaurants in the area include Three Blue Ducks, a farm to table restaurant where you can gauge the level of quality the food has just upon experiencing the livestock and condition of the farm outside of the restaurant.Then there’s the more intimate 15-seater, Fleet, which takes great pride in sourcing produce and creating dishes that capture the local spirit and flavor of the region. The shops in Byron are tailored to the globe trotting bohémes, with shops stocked with locally crafted coffee and home goods and if not local, are carefully curated with designs sourced through international travel.
