A bit about Bangalow

Less than 20 minutes from the heart of Byron Bay is the charming village of Bangalow. Surrounded by green rolling hills, Bangalow is a gorgeous place to explore or better yet, call home. It may be just two hours from Brisbane and yet it feels a million miles from city life.

Bangalow is home to beautiful Federation buildings as well as wonderful restaurants and cafes. It is also known for its stylish stores that sell many gorgeous, locally made products. The town also hosts regular markets and top-notch events throughout the year such as the Sample Food Festival and Bangalow Music Festival, both of which attract locals and holidaymakers from far and wide. From foodies to families to festival goers, the picturesque village of Bangalow has something from everyone.
