Time to play tourist in your own region and create an itinerary of fab things to do, just like you would if you were hoofing it to Paris or Perth or anywhere else in between. Then the trick is to pretend you really ARE away. If Byron happens to be your local ‘hood, you’re spoiled for choice to put on your Must-Do List, and if you’re not in Byron, just apply the same philosophy to tracking down the best-of-the-best to do in your own area. It doesn’t matter if you’re in a big city or little country town, there’ll be places and things to do that you’ll look at with fresh eyes if you pretend you’re visiting as a tourist. Promise.
If you’re not already having a Staycation with us at The Bower on our mid-week Locals-Only promotion, have a look at our list for a bit of Staycay inspiration for Byron, and it’s not just about the beaches.
