  • From Byron Bay: Half-Day Trip to Crystal Castle

    Experience the calming and healing effects of Byron Bay's Crystal Palace on this half-day trip. After getting picked up from your hotel in the Byron Shire area, enjoy a scenic 30-minute drive through the Byron Hinterland to reach the palace.

Follow paths such as the Budda Walk which will take you through the Shambalah Gardens, the reflexology walk, or the rainforest walk. You will also have the opportunity to take part in daily workshops and meditation sessions. Feel free to get something to eat at the on-site vegetarian cafe or treat yourself to some crystals at the shop. Get dropped off back at your hotel in Byron after 3.5 hours.

    It took us about 20 minutes to get to the Crystal Castle. I absolutely loved it there. The whole place is so magical and surrounded with pure nature, therefore the view of byron’s hinterland was marvellous. I was a bit afraid of the thought that the place would be full of tourists but this wasn’t the case at all. We had plenty of time to stroll around the whole area which was provided with a considerable number of stunning crystals and interesting figures. I also took part in two extremely informative and interesting workshops which were definitely a highlight of the day. I absolutely recommend this place to everyone who is into the whole magic of crystals.
