    The gentleman, MasterC and myself are heading to Byron Bay for 4 nights in late April. Any recommendations for accommodation and/or restaurants?

    Can't really help you with accommodation as I grew up not far away and stay with family :)

    I haven't been to the place below but it has been on my list for a while. Whenever I visit home, I just can't seem to make it fit!

    Home | Ché Bon Restaurant

    Would love to hear what you think if you make it there.

    We stayed at Elements of Byron last August. Very impressed with the huge pool and the cabins are quite luxurious. The restaurant was very good too. It is also a short walk to the beach but it is a bit of a walk to the town - around 45 minutes - but the train near the resort to the town should be running now. We did an Uber but there were not many about so be prepared to wait a bit.

    The Byron at Byron resort is our favourite.

    Great, thanks for the tips. I have been considering Elements but at the moment I think 4 nights is around $3k so a bit more than I was hoping to pay. The Byron at Byron and Lord Byron were two of the others I was considering. We will have a car so will be able to get around to areas outside Byron too (although as we will be with MasterC it won't be road tripping).

    i am a local. i can recommend the Byron at Byron and would choose it over Lord Byron. you will need a car. what kind od dining do you like? i would second Fleet. book now, if you can,its hard to get into. we have an Accor plus card so enjoy discount dining at Elements. new places that people are talking about but im yet to get to. Barrio BYO industrial estate. new venture for a local chef who use to do the fabuolous Fransiscos Table. Ryce . in town looks like it does a good cocktail. try the cafes during the day in Marvel Street. youll see the crowds. Miss Margaritas for mexican and more cocktails.

    As much as I enjoy fine dining, i will be traveling with a 4 year old so casual lunch and dinner venues are more likely to work for us.

    Thanks for the responses. Have gone with the Byron at Byron. Definitely going to try and visit Three blue ducks. Some of the other recommendations look great but not sure they will work with MasterC unfortunately.
