Where should you live in Byron Bay​?

  • Byron Bay center

However, this will not be your ideal place to live if you are dreaming of tranquility and living surrounded by nature, since the center is quite busy.
There are some pro’s and cons to living in the centre. Living in the centre makes sure you are of walking distance to schools, restaurants, shops and cafes. A big downside to living in the centre is that it can get quiet busy and can be expensive.

  • Outer Suburbs

The outer suburbs might be the right place to live if you plan on having a car or just looking for a cheaper place. Some close suburbs include Bangalow and Suffolk Park. Bangalow is a 15 minute drive and is more of an inland residential area. Suffolk Park is just a 10 minute drive from Byron bay and is located close restaurants, shops and the beach.

  • Because Byron is such a small place. you can never guarantee to finding or getting a job.
  • Wages are low and employers will take advantage of job seekers and illegally pay them below the minimum wages.
  • Finding a place to live may be harder than other places, there is a large demand for places to rent and especially close to the beaches.
