Byron Bay is famous for its expansive coastal landscapes, quirky locals and chilled out vibes. It’s also a popular hotspot for yoga and spiritual activities (think ecstatic dancing, myriad meditations and green smoothies aplenty). The town embraces community, with an abundance of farmers markets in the shire and a focus on buying local, sustainable goods. The ‘locals’ are made up of old school hippies, backpackers and city dwellers with a dream to escape the nine-to-five grind.
But what’s so special about the area, and what has inspired us to create a whole online platform dedicated to it, is an essence that’s palpably magic. Byron is known as a healing hub, a place to come, be healed and move forward. And that’s what we have both experienced, now living just outside of the shire but visiting frequently to soak up the natural wonders and inspiration that permeates the area. Although this space isn’t focused on Byron Bay itself, it aims to share the essence that is Byron – from expansive nature to yogic delights – with the rest of the world, inspiring you to bring the philosophies of Byron into your own little corner of this earth – wherever that may be.
