Accommodation, sorted... Now, what about a dog-friendly adventure?
Visit a dog-friendly beach
One of the best parts about a trip to Byron Bay are the stunning beaches. Belongil Beach and Suffolk Park are close to town, a picturesque place to take a dip or throw a ball. For more information about dog-friendly beaches and off-leash areas, visit the official tourism website.
Visit a market
There’s no shortage of craft and produce markets around Byron Bay. And thankfully, some of them are dog friendly. The Byron Twilight Market happens every Saturday between 4pm and 9pm over Spring and Summer, and you can bring your dog on a leash.
Visit the Farm
The Farm is a world-renowned working farm that hosts a collection of micro-businesses. Experience delicious local produce, walk through stunning gardens or discover how organic food is grown. You’re welcome to have your four-legged friend with you when you visit the Farm, provided they’re on a lead and remain in the outdoor areas.
Visit a brewery
You can even drink a beer with your best mate in Byron (well, you can, they’ll watch). Visit Stone & Wood brewery where they allow dogs outdoors and in the tasting room.
Grab a bite at a dog-friendly cafe
Byron’s year-round warm temperatures mean that there are endless outdoor dining options for your four-legged friends. Popular cafes with outdoor seating include The Byron Bay General Store, the Treehouse on Belongil and The Italian Diner in Bangalow (rumour has it, they have an entire menu just for your doggo!)
Having an epic and unforgettable holiday with your dog requires a little more pre-planning. But with a little bit of local knowledge, the options are endless. From white sand beaches to tasty produce to stunning natural surrounds – we’re not sure who will love it more, you or your dog.
