Restaurants in Byron Bay

 What is it about Byron then?

Byron Bay – chances are if you’ve ever heard anything about Australia you’ll have heard about this once sleepy beachside town. The most easterly point in Australia, Byron Bay has certainly had a colourful history. Originally the base for whaling, during the 1970s the town became a mecca for surfers which sparked the tourism craze for travellers seeking the famous white sand beaches and the picturesque hinterland surrounding the town. Gaining a reputation as a hippy, alternative town following the Nimbin Aquarius Festival, Byron is now a choice location for those looking for a seachange from the city, which has caused the Byron Bay restaurant and entertainment sectors to shift, and flourish. So, if you find yourself caught in the Byron bubble, well you’ll need to eat, so read on for some secret Byron Bay restaurants, bars and cafes worth a look.

Byron Bay restaurants specialising in exotic cuisines from Indian, to South American, European, Southeast Asian, and everything in between have found their homes here. Take a wander down Johnson Street for some organic, fresh sashimi at Byron Bay restaurant institution, OSushi, where their organic soy and ginger tenderloin is out of this world. Or if a curry craving has hit you after a day at The Pass, Bombay to Byron is one of Byron Bay’s best Indian restaurants, catering for vegetarian, vegan and meat-loving spice fans from all over the rainbow region. We highly advise tucking into their Goan fish curry as soon as you possibly can.
