Add Cape Byron Walking Track to your Aussie Bucket List if you enjoy walking, nature and exploring Australia's great outdoors. You’ll need a good two hours to properly experience the Cape Byron walking track – but it’s so rich in delights, so don’t be surprised if you reach the end and feel like doing it all again. In fact, it’s one of the best ways to spend a couple of hours on the state’s entire coast.

The 3.7 kilometre loop leads you on a hike through rainforest and across clifftops with stunning views of the ocean and hinterland. En route you’ll wander through the shade of bangalow palms and ancient burrawangs, across kangaroo grasslands, along picturesque beaches and up to Cape Byron Lighthouse.

Remember to keep an eye out on the water for turtles, dolphins, stingrays and, in season, whales. If you’d prefer an easier walk, the track can be accessed at numerous points and walked in shorter sections.
