Autumn & Winter is the perfect time to visit Byron Bay. The crowds have died down, but the climate is still perfect. Here’s some of the big events coming up:

  • Byron Bay International Film Festival, Friday 14 October to Sunday 23 October
    Featuring the very best in local, national and international cinema, the Byron Bay International Film Festival celebrates its tenth year in 2016.

  • Ballina Prawn Festival, Saturday 12 November
    Set on the banks of the glorious Richmond River, the Ballina Prawn Festival is one whole day and night of fun, laughter and community.
  • Mullum Music Festival, Thursday 17 November to Sunday 20 November
    In a musical landscape dominated by super-festivals, there’s an alternative breed of smaller, more boutique style events making their own very distinctive mark on the industry.
    Mullum Music Festival is one such event and its popularity with both musicians and fans is a testament to its musical integrity.
  • Byron Spirit Festival, Friday 31 March to Sunday 2 April
    Featuring accomplished teachers, musicians and visionaries from Byron and way beyond, the new program is composed of dozens of daily workshops in yoga, conscious dance, sacred music and other creative, embodied endeavours, plus evenings of luscious music, ceremony and celebration.

    Byron Bay Bluesfest is Australia’s premier contemporary Blues & Roots music festival. It showcases music from around the world annually on the Easter long weekend on 120 hectares at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm, just north of Byron Bay, NSW.
