With its nineteenth century streetscape and restored historic buildings, the township of Bangalow still retains the feel of a rural country village.

Bangalow offers a delightful stopover with its heritage shopfronts, cafes and restaurants, craft shops and galleries. Located just over 12 km from the heart of Byron Bay and 32 km from Lismore, it makes for a popular holiday and day-tripper destination.

Bangalow has a number of popular events including the Billy Cart Derby, that first started when the highway by-pass re-routed the traffic away from the town.

Check out our listing of Bangalow accommodation. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
