Byron Bay, (c) used with permission by Mick Duck

On the east coast of Australia, situated between Sydney and Brisbane, lies the most easterly point of mainland Australia. This is the magical town of Byron Bay. This is my favourite stop on the ISV Australian adventure tour.

Other than being the most easterly point on mainland Australia, Byron Bay is famous for surfing, sun, laidback lifestyle, whales, music and its lighthouse. The town is full of friendly locals and young travellers and that mix makes for an amazing destination.

The ISV adventure tour stops here for surfing which is part of the Optional Activity Package. No matter the conditions there is always somewhere suitable for jumping on a board. From beginners to pro this is one of the best destinations for surfing in Australia.

The lighthouse at Byron Bay is worth the visit for two reasons. The first reason is because this is the most eastern point of Australia so you can be one of the first people in Australia to see the sunrise. The second reason is during the ISV adventure tour it is whale season. From the lighthouse you can spot whales migrating and dolphins frolicking if the conditions are right.

So, you are still reading to find out why the sand squeaks in Byron Bay. Well, you will have to come on the ISV adventure tour in Australia to find out.
