Welcome to Byron Trails


Discover the natural treasures that exist in Byron Bay and beyond.


Byron Trails is the first and only comprehensive guidebook of coastal and hinterland walks accessible from Byron Bay.


Bob Brown


Byron Bay's front door opens onto world famous beaches but it has a more secret back door which opens inland to remarkable World Heritage rainforests.

Mairead plans a beautiful book showing how we can all get into this Byron hinterland with its stunning mountain peaks, waterfalls, wide river pools and wonderful wildlife, as well as how we can access some of the picturesque coastline close by: it will be the perfect guide.

A note from Mairéad

I put this guide together because I love the idea of giving people an experience of nature. I know how good it is for us to walk and to spend time in Nature. The research proves it. So it's my hope that through this guidebook you may experience a connection with nature that you'll want to repeat again and again.

When I first moved to the Byron area I found it was difficult to find information about walks so I decided to research and compile what’s out there myself. I've turned that research into a one-stop guide to the coastal and hinterland walks in Byron, Tweed, Ballina and Nightcap National Park.

I've aimed for simplicity and the book contains a chart that lists walks by length, difficulty, and feature. It also lists the closest cafes to your chosen walk for a well deserved chai or snack afterwards.

So go, explore, immerse and lap up what this beautiful area has to offer.
