ROAD TRIP: Sydney to Byron Bay

Is there anything more nostalgia-inducing than loading up the car, throwing on your favourite playlist and indulging in some sugary snacks under the guise of keeping yourself alert?


Yes, ladies and gentlemen, we’re talking about the great aussie road trip!

With NSW travel restrictions lifting it’s time to pack up your beach bags and opt for the scenic route. Sure, driving takes a little bit longer than jumping on a flight and fly from Sydney, but it also promises to be much more memorable, and after spending months confined to our homes we want to lap up every precious holiday moment.

From beautiful beaches and delicious wine regions to spectacular national parks and historical towns, a road trip is the perfect way to soak up our wonderfully diverse state of NSW.

What’s more, it would be remiss of us, given the current climate of COVID-19 not to mention that this form of travel lays the foundations for a pathogen-free vacation with minimal contact points and less chance of prolonged exposure to communal spaces. As does opting for motel-style accommodation – no lifts, no foyers, no dining rooms – simply pull up at your front door and let the vacation begin!

Time to dive in, escape, get back to basics and explore our home soil. Here are our recommendations for pit stops to make along the way from Sydney to Byron Bay stay.
