Join us for a unique tour that takes you off the beaten track in the magical 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 accommodation in town, we then journey through the hinterlands to the rushing waters of Killen Falls, where you can swim amongst the turtles whilst surrounded by the impressive natural scenery.

We then explore the epic Lennox Head coastline on foot 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 tea tree lake, Lake Ainsworth. Boosting immunity, blood circulation, relieving aches and pains and leaving your skin soft and silky.

Walk along 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.

Your guide will share knowledge 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!

You won’t regret booking this tour!!

This was an incredible tour!! Harry (the tour guide) did an amazing job looking after everyone on the tour, from being so friendly and engaging right from the start, he picked us up and took us to Killen falls where we got to look around and swim, Harry was so patient with waiting for us all to finish swimming, even offered to take photos of my partner and i (which he sent to us after the tour) he then took us to our next location which was Lennox head where we ordered lunch and swam in the beautiful tea-tree waters of lake Ainsworth while harry waited for our food and was kind enough to bring over when it was ready, we also went on a beautiful costal walk after that at Lennox head coastline which was breath taking, I would give this tour a 10/10 if possible!! If you find yourself in Byron bay without a car but wanting to experience places you never thought of going to, then this tour is for you!!

Fantastic experience!

Loved the tour with Harry. He was a fun tour guide, and also provided great value! Even gave someone his shoes for the little hike we did when they forgot them! Great to see someone so passionate about the Byron lifestyle!

Amazing Tour!

Harry is a great tour guide! He took us to incredible hidden places in Byron Bay and was warm, approachable and very professional. The waterfall was my fav spot, it is a fantastic place to have a swim and enjoy the beauty of nature. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to run away from the crowd, connect with nature,meet people and discover another side of Byron.

Great way to see some beautiful spots.

What a great time I had on this tour. Harry, our guide, is a genuinely nice person who knows the area and had a great rapport with all 5 of the guests on his tour today. We started off with a visit to Killen Falls for a refreshing swim and natural massage under the waterfall. Then off to a Tea tree lakes which was the favorite with everyone. The lake with the reddish-brown water was so beautiful and refreshing. A nice sandy bottom and no sharks to worry about!! It's just a hop skip over the way from the pounding surf. We purchased lunch at the nearby kiosk. Finally, it was a 15 minute walk on a trail at Broken Heads. Stunning blue green water from up high and pounding surf on the rocks below. Harry is really looking to make the best experience for his guests and nothing was a bother for him. He is easy going on the time schedule, allowing us to stay longer in a spot if we wished or make unscheduled stops along the way. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for something different from the other tours on offer in town. Good for families, backpackers, the adventurous ?. Thanks Harry, for a nice afternoon out. Best of luck with the noodle venture!!!
