Full description

Explore all that Byron has to offer on this packed day tour. Visit the Byron Bay lighthouse, explore Crystal Castle, and enjoy a tasty BBQ lunch in Bangalow.

Your adventure starts when you're picked up from your accommodation, and you'll be driven up to the iconic Byron Bay lighthouse. Marvel at the panoramic views over the Pacific Ocean and mountain landscape, and get up close to the iconic Byron Bay lighthouse. Between May and October, you can spot whales on their annual migration.

Next, enjoy a tour of The Farm Byron Bay, a sustainable farming and food experience. Meet the resident heritage-breed pigs, Scottish Highland cattle, and free-roaming chickens. Stroll through fields of flowers, macadamia and pecan plantations, and market gardens filled with in-season produce. 

Then, it’s off to the mystical Crystal Castle. Here you can marvel at the massive natural crystals on show, get lost in a garden labyrinth, take a gentle walk, touch the World Peace stupa or just enjoy a coffee and soak up the hushed tranquillity of this amazing place. The Zen quality of the crystals will put you in the perfect frame of mind for a drive through the beautiful Byron hinterland to the next destination, the historic and delightful town of Bangalow.

Enjoy a delicious BBQ-style lunch, followed by a stroll through this beautiful village, which includes vintage clothing stores, homewares shops, glamorous designer boutiques, and an authentic French patisserie. From Bangalow, return to Byron Bay, where you'll be dropped off with plenty of time to have a late afternoon swim or surf.

    Definitely recommend this tour! The lighthouse and views are amazing, the farm was so nice to visit and crystal castle was absolutely beautiful, there was even an option to do a sound healing session there which was so nice and relaxing. The tour guide Tom was so lovely and very knowledgeable and made it a great experience. Very grateful to have gotten to visit all these great attractions at Byron Bay during our stay.

    Our tour guide Tom was so so lovely. Very knowledgeable and knew alot of byron bay and it’s history. He took us to all the spots and they were beautiful, unfortunately the weather was not the best that day but it was all worth it. The crystal castle was amazing and definitely worth a visit. Lunch was provided with a BBQ made by Tom just burgers and chips, simple and easy, you can’t complain! Anyway we just want to say thanks to Tom as he was genuinely such a good person and tour guide.

    Tour guide was very informative (knew a lot about Byron bay and it's history) and easy going. We went to some interesting spots, however the lunch was okay but just a burger on a bbq and some chips, which wasn't what we envisioned for the lunch considering the lunch write up. Overall a good tour!
