Taste the best of Byron Bay over the long weekend

Spending a long weekend in Byron Bay is probably something akin to bliss, but to combine the short trip away with a huge foodie package is nothing short of heavenly! The Byron and Taste Byron Bay‘s Terase Davidson have created a special foodie tour package that allows visitors to not only stay at The Byron, but also to experience the best of the region, as well as sample the food of the area, from producers like the Stone&Wood Brewery, Nimbin Valley Dairy Cheese and Picone Exotic Fruits.

The package includes:

  • Three nights’ accommodation in a Superior Suite
  • Full buffet breakfast for two daily in The Restaurant
  • Gift pack on arrival including your very own Furi paring knife valued at $54.95
  • Complimentary daily yoga at 8am
  • Complimentary Wifi

Available from Friday 22nd April to Monday 25th April, stay at The Byron spend a day exploring the Byron Bay Hinterland in an impossibly Byron-esque Combi as you visit local farmer’s markets and producers.  You can also take part in a private cooking class by Taste Byron Bay‘s Terase Davidson and return home to the real world with more knowledge about the area.


The package tour is designed to offer the best of Byron Bay to its visitors with a foodie focus.  The itinerary is as follows:
