What you'll do

Join us for a unique journey exploring the hidden, untouched gems surrounding Byron Bay. Enjoy an authentic, local experience and discover magical places you never would have known existed. Your day will begin with us picking you up from your accomodation in town. We journey through the hinterlands to the rushing waters of Killen falls, where you can swim amongst the turtles whilst surrounded by magical caves and trees.

We then explore the epic Lennox Head coastline with uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean, impressive cliffs, beaches, grassy hills, and lakes - all in the one place. Following this, take a rejuvenating swim in the sacred ti tree lake, Lake Ainsworth. Boosting immunity, blood circulation, relieving aches and pains and leaving your skin soft and silky. Here we also stop for a delicious lunch on the stunning seven mile beach.

After lunch we explore the winding paths of the stunning Broken Head Nature Reserve to the Three Sisters Lookout, with miles of pristine coastline and a forest walk that leaves you on, arguably, Byron's most stunning and secluded beach. The day is topped off with a 360-degree view of the iconic Byron Bay and its surrounds.

Gain insight into the history of sacred locations and those who wish to protect them. Leave with a greater understanding and appreciation for what the region has to offer, and make friends along the way!

I have lived here in Byron Bay for 2 years now and over that time have fallen in love with some of the hidden spots I have discovered. I have become knowledgable and connected to all the hidden locations that surround the hustle and bustle of Byron Bay itself. I have discovered many hidden, off the beaten track spots over the years, some of which took me years to come across. It has become a mission of mine to share these places with people who would not otherwise have the chance to experience them. I will never forget discovering these locations for the first time, and I want share this with others whilst having some fun along the way!

A great day out exploring some of the hidden gems the Byron area has to offer. Harry was an excellent guide with lots of local knowledge and flexible when we wanted to stay at some spots a little longer.

My girlfriends and I booked Harry’s tour for our first trip to Byron, and we loved it! Harry was very professional, but also felt like a friend the whole time. The waterfall was amazing, and the lake was such a great experience! The view along the walk was also beautiful, and each destination were places we wouldn’t have known to visit otherwise. It was also a very relaxing day, it didn’t feel like there was much of a rush and we were able to get a good chunk of time at each place. Harry was knowledgeable about each of the locations and made the day super fun. We are so glad we decided to do the tour and I’d recommend it to anybody looking to see some beautiful things in Byron!
