31 Jul Our Top Picks for Planning a Winter Honeymoon in Byron Bay
Sure, honeymoons might seem more synonymous with romance in the summer sun, but at Wild Goat Events, we think winter is an equally beautiful setting – especially if you’re planning on spending it in Byron Bay. Beaches and luxury stays are in abundance on our shores, and we’re evidently a little bit biased, but this corner of the earth is paradise. Any excuse to visit will do!
We’ve delved into our list of local favourites to design the must-do honeymoon list. If you’re a little past the honeymoon stage, don’t click away. Romance doesn’t just have to be limited to honeymoons. Take our suggestions for a luxe, romance-filled adventure at any point in your love story – you’ll thank us.
You could opt for a classic hotel – or follow our lead and spend some time in a luxurious private residence. Byron Bay Luxury Homes has a bevy of listings to pique your interest, each with their own unique vibe, perfect for an unforgettable honeymoon or romantic escape. Their team will go above and beyond to help you pick out your ideal residence, whether it be a home on the waterfront, downtown apartment, or hinterland escape, so you may enjoy your slice of heaven in pure style.
A Byron Bay honeymoon wouldn’t be complete without spending some time on one of our world-class beaches, and with winter temperatures lingering around 22 degrees, we think it’s the perfect place to try something new. Soul Surf School is our pick: they have dedicated honeymoon packages, and, whether it’s your first time on the board or your hundredth, they’ll expertly cater the experience just for the two of you.
Of course, at some point on your honeymoon you’re practically required to book a spa treatment, right? (Honestly, it should be a weekly requirement for life, but that’s a conversation for another time…) When we choose to be pampered, we go for Aleshia Marie for a few reasons. One: she’s incredible. Aleshia is all about creating custom experiences and treatments which nourish body, mind and spirit, leaving even the most stressed-out soul in a state of bliss. Two: she focuses on all aspects of beauty therapy, down to manicuring and facials. Three: she comes to you, which means after your massage, you can stay in your own home and relax rather than having to drive for miles first. We’re in love.
SOMETHING DIFFERENT Toast the Sun
Last but not least, if you’re determined to see a Byron sunrise before you leave, we know just the way to make it incredible. Join us at the Cape Byron Lighthouse to experience Australia’s first mainland sunrise, soaking up the early morning rays with coffee or chai in hand. Following sunrise, we’ll send you off with a gourmet picnic basket and designer picnic rug, so you can enjoy one of Byron’s most treasured sights in a relaxed and intimate setting. Or, opt for our styled picnic and we’ll create a bespoke event just for the two of you. (Even the locals can’t get enough of us.)
