RESTAURANTS IN BYRON BAY

They say that the way to a person's heart is through their stomach, which is probably the case-and-point of why we have all fallen so head-over-love-struck-heels for Byron. My personal consensus (I’ve put a bit of thought into this) is that Byron is a foodie paradise, mainly due to the local fresh produce and also the calibre of chefs and restaurants in the area. With around 30,000 residents populating the shire and over 2 million tourists it has a small town mentality of ‘if you don’t produce quality everybody knows about it’ combined with the huge amount of tourist resourcing to justify investing in beautiful fit outs, top notch chefs and industry professionals who are willing to push the limits of cuisine (and just about everything else). Every time I have visited there has been somewhere new to try, so after a glorious day in paradise, what better way to farewell the sun with a great dining experience, from the multifaceted options at your fingertips.

GLAMPING IN DAYLESFORD

I love the idea of immersing myself into nature, escaping the busy city for some quiet and serenity but I don’t like the idea of sleeping in a sleeping bag with insects and bugs. Cue, Cosy Tents, who have brought the best elements of camping together with some luxury touches, to make the perfect middle ground between a tent and a hotel room.
