With the unpredictable nature of our world right now, many of us can only dream about escaping to a sun drenched destination and unplugging from the daily grind.

But for now, what we can do is create lists of our favourite places around Australia and make some very detailed plans for when we can next visit.

For many of us here at Forever New, one of those beloved places is Byron Bay, and it’s definitely at the top of the list for Lucy Brownless. Melbourne personality and style influencer, Lucy gives us her travel tips for a stay in one of NSW’s most stylish destinations.

 

 

WHERE TO EAT

“My favourite spots are The Roadhouse for pizza and drinks, La Casita for fresh Mexican – the tres leches dessert is to die for! – and Ciao Mate for delicious pasta. But for something with more character, Kouzina is my number one local gem. It is super cute sitting outside in the courtyard on a balmy night and it’s the best Greek food I’ve ever had.”

 

The Roadhouse | 6/142 Bangalow Rd, Byron Bay NSW

La Casita |5/3 Fawcett St, Brunswick Heads NSW

Ciao Mate | 33 Byron St, Bangalow NSW 2479

Kouzina | 1/1 Acacia St, Byron Bay NSW 2481

 

 

WHERE TO DRINK 

“Harvest in Newrybar has amazing cocktails and oysters. The Mez Club and The Balcony are also faves, they are great for an afternoon drink as the suns sets.”

 

Harvest | Village 18, 22 Old Pacific Hwy, Newrybar NSW

The Mez Club | 4/85-87 Jonson St, Byron Bay NSW 

The Balcony Bar + Oyster Co. | 7/3 Lawson St, Byron Bay NSW

WHERE TO SWIM

“Watergos Beach is my favourite, it’s always so calm and peaceful and on a quiet day you can get a pretty private spot around the rocks. If you’re feeling more adventurous, pack a picnic and drive along the coast between Tallow Beach and Lennox Head, you’ll find some amazing private beaches that you can stay at all day.”

 

Watergos Beach | Off Marine Parade, Byron Bay NSW 

Whites Beach | Broken Head Nature Reserve, Broken Head NSW

Brays Beach | Broken Head Nature Reserve, Broken Head NSW

Kings Beach | Broken Head Nature Reserve, Broken Head NSW

 

WHERE TO GIRL'S DAY 

"Do a long lunch with your girls at either The Hut or Shelter in Lennox Head. My friends are loving Frida's Field, I haven’t been able to go yet but that’s next on my list.”

 

The Hut |471 Friday Hut Rd, Possum Creek NSW

Shelter Lennox | 41 Pacific Parade, Lennox Head NSW

Frida's Field | 76 Booyong Rd, Nashua NSW 2479

WHERE TO DATE NIGHT

“For date night I’d head to The Roadhouse or Di Vino for Italian. On a Sunday night, The Farm is perfect. They have a Sunday roast dinner which is always delicious and there’s live music.”  

 

The Roadhouse | 6/142 Bangalow Rd, Byron Bay NSW

Di Vino| Shops 4/2 Fletcher St, Byron Bay NSW 

The Farm |11 Ewingsdale Rd, Ewingsdale NSW

 

 

WHAT TO PACK

“My go-to outfit for a Byron Bay trip would have to be a midi dress, sandals and an oversized blazer. Currently, I’m loving Forever New’s Holly Ruched Midi and the Dakota Check Midi Dress.
