Byron Bay Adventure Tours
What to do in Byron? Byron Bay Adventure Tours conduct Byron tours that showcase this stunning destination including the world-famous beaches, ancient rainforests of Mount Warning, World Heritage listed Nightcap National Park, the magnificent Minyon Falls, historic country towns of Bangalow and Nimbin, kayaking with dolphins, learning to surf and mountain biking in the Byron hinterland.
Byron Bay Adventure Tours is the only tour operator to offer Mount Warning camping and climbing tours. Climb Mount Warning either at dawn as the first sunrays hit the Australian mainland or during the day as a day walk. The Mount Warning walk leads you through World Heritage listed rainforests to the highest peak in the Byron hinterland with breath-taking 360 degree views.
Can’t decide between mountain biking, kayaking with dolphins, learning to surf or exploring the hinterland? Well don’t! Combine the best of both worlds! Our ‘Earth to Surf’ full day tour or our overnight ‘Ocean to Summit’ tour both include a Byron hinterland tour plus a spectacular kayaking tour with dolphins in Byron Bay.
For anyone who loves the thrill of mountain biking and exploring the hinterland – then our one day ‘Earth to Surf’ tour or our overnight ‘Bike n’ Hike’ tour is for you. And for those wanting to enjoy the best of Byron Bay’s surfing action and explore the hinterland, then it has to be the ‘Waves to Waterfalls’ one day tour or the overnight ‘Ocean to Summit’ tour.
Our Byron hinterland tours take visitors to the Nightcap National Park, and its reputation as an outstanding place to visit is well deserved. Take a swim in pristine creek waters, photograph the abundant wildlife or simply relax and enjoy this unique environment. We offer a range of tours, including our full day ‘Big Day Out’ tour and our two day ‘Overnight Escape’ tour, which includes a visit to the historical town of Nimbin. Our ‘Half Day Out’ Byron Bay tour is a local’s guide to Byron Bay offering a wide range of experiences that won’t be found in guide books. Discover secluded beaches, uncrowded headlands to enjoy dolphin and whale watching (Jun-Oct) and savour Byron Bay’s best coffee! Or take to the skies with our ‘Byron Bay 360’ tour, perfect for adrenaline junkies and those who want to see Byron Bay, from the air and by foot! This tour combines a 30 minute flight over Byron Bay in a gyrocopter. Finally, if you’re seeking a one day tour that combines the best of Byron Bay and the surrounding hinterland, then our ‘Byron & Beyond Tour’ hits the mark! Visit the Byron Lighthouse, then venture inland to the mystical Crystal Castle, dine some of the region’s best local produce and explore the historic town of Bangalow.
