Byron Bay is synonymous with beauty, exclusivity and pristine beaches. Long the haunt of celebrities, the area has become a firm favourite with Airbnb guests who want their own slice of paradise.
They can surf or scuba dive, watch whales – between June and November – visit the lighthouse, go hot air ballooning and horse riding. And if all that’s too much exercise, there are restaurants galore, and art galleries to browse.
Holiday houses, apartments – on the beach and in the hinterland – are all lucrative money earners from short term rental management.
