Palm Valley Currenbah walking track starts at Palm Valley carpark next to The Pass Café. It’s a cool escape from the bustle of Byron Bay, winding its way through shaded palm rainforest with picnic and barbecue facilities at either end.

This 10min walk is flat and paved, making it ideal for visitors with prams and wheelchairs. Opposite the carpark at the end of the walk is The Pass, a world-famous surfing beach that’s home to the oldest Aboriginal midden in the region.

Relax on the beach or head up to Fishermans Lookout, a fantastic place to spot migrating whales between June and November. If you’re up for a challenge, link up with Cape Byron walking track which offers incredible views over the headland.
