Byron Bay, New South Wales, Australia. It is one of the most spectacular places in Australia with beautiful white-sand surfing beaches and a hinterland of mountains and rain-forest. I've holidayed there four times over my lifetime and it has to be regarded as tops.
Byron is situatated on the most easterly point of Australia, just below the Queensland-NSW border. It's a layback town where the 'high-rise developers' have been unsuccessful in establishing any buildings which detract from the place's natural bushland setting.
If you're ever in Australia, give it a visit.
