Is this trip right for you?

  • This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.

  • Please ensure you consult your local government’s advice regarding domestic travel prior to booking this trip.

Meals Included
  • Dinner
This morning, wake up with a sun salutation if you join an included yoga and meditation session before breakfast. Whether you're an absolute beginner or seasoned practitioner, worry not, the yoga and meditation sessions are suitable for all levels. We then head to Brunswick River for a nature kayak tour. The Brunswick River is one of the most beautiful river systems in New South Wales. We will kayak along peaceful waters where the only interruption will be from local sea birds and wildlife calling out as you cruise by. Your guide for the kayaking adventure will be a local Arakwal guide. The Arakwal Bumberlin people, have lived in the coastal landscape around the Byron Bay area for at least 22,000 years so it will be a privilege to learn about the area from a local first nations guide.

Kayaking: the timing of our kayaking adventure is dependent on the tides so the timing of today may change slightly.

For lunch head to a local farm for a farm to table experience. This regional has long been a haven for environmentally minded individuals so there are plenty of food experiences to choose from.

Later head into Byron Bay were the rest of the afternoon and evening is free for you to explore the town. Walk along the beaches, head to the iconic Cape Byron lighthouse, and maybe choose from one of the many delicious dinner options on offer in town. Your transport will leave Byron town at approximately 9:30 pm the evening to return you to your accommodation.
