Being a person who travels all over NSW for work, visiting Byron at least once a year, I find it is inherently over populated, with literally thousands of vehicles and people pouring into the seaside village killing any peace there may have been. 15 years ago when we first visited, it has become way over priced and over rated as a place to visit in Australia.
There is no parking, what parking there is, Council charges $5 an hour! So people won't stay long in town.
Be careful of tourist drivers, many drive on the wrong side of the road, pull out in front of you, speed around town and don't know the road rules.
Not to mention the bike riders and pedestrians who are constantly on the road disregarding their own safety.
Plenty of places to eat, bit hit and miss with quality, ask around and see where the locals eat.
Drinking out can be expensive, some more than others.
Look around for accommodation, it can also be hit and miss, unfortunately there's not much under $180 a night and that doesn't mean it's good.
