A beachside town located on the northeastern coast of New South Wales, Byron Bay is named after John Byron, a naval officer and circumnavigator. Austrailian red cedar comes from Byron Bay and was the area’s first industry, followed by gold mining. Today, Byron Bay is famed for its gorgeous beaches and surfing, where both international and local tourists seek a quick getaway away from the city.
If you’re staying in Byron Bay for the weekend, don’t forget to visit the famous Belongil Beach. Check out these 10 best Airbnb vacation rentals in the area and start planning your trip!
This accommodation’s curious name comes from the fact that it is actually a newly-converted, 20-foot (6.1-meter) long shipping container, located opposite Belongil Beach. It’s comfortable, cozy and contains important essentials, like air conditioning, a television set, Wi-Fi, a kitchen, a private barbecue, and an outside sitting area, where you can easily kick back with a cold beer or two.
It’s only a three-minute walk to a great breakfast cafe and the Treehouse Restaurant and Bar and is only a 10-minute stroll away from the town, for easy access. If you’re bringing a car with you, there’s parking right on the street. A one-minute walk will lead you to Belongil Beach.
