Bayview Beachfront Apartments News and Events
Winter in Byron can be a real treat. Beautiful blue sky days in the mid-low 20s and cool crisp nights.
This is what your winter break could look like: enjoy a sleep in, or not, delight in a leisurely breakfast at one of the many café options within minutes stroll from Bayview. Come back and lie on the beach & enjoy a refreshing ocean dip or swim; or enjoy our heated swimming pool and sun deck. You have plenty of lunch options and the afternoon is yours to watch a movie, have a nap, take a walk to the lighthouse, read that book that you have been wanting to or any of the other possible winter activities in Byron. Partake in a cocktail or 2 at the Balcony Bar or a couple of quiet ones at any of the 3 local pubs and then take in dinner at one of the many world class restaurants in town. Repeat.

Friday 19th July to Sunday, 21st July
Since its beginnings as a boutique 1-day festival in 2001, Splendour in the Grass has grown enormously to become Australia’s biggest winter music festival. The three-day event brings together international bands and Australian acts across multiple stages as well as comedy acts, workshops and yoga.
The festival draws a huge amount of people to the region, with many acts taking the opportunity to play side shows in the area. Byron bay’s already dynamic town becomes ever more vibrant with people from all over the world coming together to celebrate music, art and culture. Not to mention the fashion! With the festival wardrobe becoming increasingly outrageous, the streets of Byron bay become a spectacle of colour, creativity and oh so much glitter!
Whether you are going to the festival or not, Splendour Weekend is truly an amazing time to be in Byron.

Thursday morning Farmers Markets Note, the weekly Farmers Markets are moving from the Butler St Reserve to Cavanbah Centre, Ewingsdale Road (the Cav) from 11 July 2019 for about 6 months while the new Byron bypass is built. There is plenty of free parking at the Cav and a free shuttle bus from Byron centre and Butler Street.
Byron Community Market
First Monthly Market to be held at beachfront rather than Butler Street reserve Sunday, August 4th
The construction of the Bus Depot at Butler Street reserve has meant a drastic move for the longstanding Byron Markets. Over the years, The Byron Market has developed a loyal following and a fierce reputation as an icon of Byron Bay Culture. The open spaces and gravel aisles of Butler Street Reserve have long been home to the huge array of stalls- featuring art, fashion, homewares, produce, food and live music. But as of Sunday, August 4th, the Byron Community Markets will shift from its well-worn home to its new location (for 6 months anyway) at the Beachfront. Community organisers are assuring us that all our favourites will be present and accounted for at the beachfront and urging everyone to keep the monthly tradition going. Now located directly across the road from Bayview Beachfront Apartments, there’s really no excuse not to enjoy it.
Sample Food Festival Bangalow Saturday, 7 September 2019
‘Sample- A taste of the Northern Rivers’ is a growing food festival located in beautiful Bangalow, just 20 minutes from Byron Bay. This annual event highlights local restaurants, growers and producers and welcomes world class chefs to the region. In 2019 it will be headlined by Matt Moran. For the hardcore foodies there are workshops, masterclasses and tours while ‘The sample Lunch’ offers a unique fine dining opportunity. If you’re not into the fancy stuff, there is still a fantastic day to be had with tasting plates, live music, market stalls and kids’ entertainment. Who doesn’t love a food festival? It is just a short drive through the magnificent hinterland, so why not make a weekend out of it and stay with us at Bayview Beachfront Apartments.
