Looking north to Cape Byron, Australia’s most eastern point.
How lucky we are to live in Byron Bay! With its beautiful beaches, warm climate, small population and healthy lifestyle Byron Bay really is the best place to live, work and study.
This week our school Director took some photos of Byron Bay and its neighbouring regions as he flew over the town in a gyrocopter. The photos show you how our little town is surrounded by long stretches of coastal forest and heathland, and let’s not forget our uncrowded surfing beaches.
Looking south to Broken Head Nature Reserve and the nearby neighbourhood of Suffolk Park.
Many of our homestay families live in Suffolk Park, just a short bike ride to Byron Bay. The surfing along this beach can be quite good for more experienced surfers and is a perfect place to watch the sunrise.
Broken Head Nature Reserve
Teachers at Byron Bay English Language School often take their students to Broken Head to study the local environment and the Indigenous history of the area. We believe that our students become happier living in Byron Bay when they learn more about its social, environmental and historical context.
Wategos Beach and Cape Byron Lighthouse
One of the best ways to start the day is to walk along Wategos Beach up to Cape Byron. Here you can catch the first sun to reach Australia each morning. You can also see spectacular sunsets from this point. Our teachers regularly take their students to watch whales, dolphins and stingrays swimming through the clear blue water. It’s always a magical experience for both the students and teachers.
These photos only show a small part of this picturesque region, there is still so much more to see here. It really is a perfect place to balance study with travel.
