Coast and waterways

Byron Shire’s coast is renowned for it’s natural beauty and biological diversity, supporting the highest number of threatened species of conservation significance in New South Wales.

The iconic Cape Byron is a dominant feature of the coastline and is the eastern most point of mainland Australia with sweeping views to the north and south. Our coastline extends from the Shire's northern border in the Billinudgel Nature Reserve to our southern border with Ballina Shire. It is part of the broader regional beach system extending from the Clarence River to Moreton Bay in Queensland.
