Nestled in the rolling hills just a 10 minute drive west of Byron Bay lies the historic village of Bangalow. Once a thriving dairy community Bangalow is fast becoming famous for its “Village Atmosphere” with an eclectic mix of galleries, antique & speciality shops and the best coffee on the North Coast. And, with its many festivals and special events it is quickly gaining recognition as a centre for music and cultural development.
Bangalow is also renowned for its picturesque countryside and agricultural pursuits. The surrounding hills are a patchwork of fruit trees, macadamia orchards, dairy cattle and other agricultural activities. Be sure to take a drive into the rainforest and go exploring along the winding country roads.
Bangalow’s colourful main street with its historical charm combines fashionable food with a wide range of shopping options, so take a stroll down ‘Eat Street’ and enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a coffee in one of the many award winning cafes and restaurants. Poke around the many galleries, antique and speciality shops or simply buy some fresh local produce at the Farmers Markets – held every Saturday morning – and picnic in the beautiful Heritage Park where you may even spy a platypus or two.
For residents and tourists alike Bangalow offers a real sense of belonging, a beautiful environment and a unique and relaxed lifestyle. So whether you are holidaying in one of the many hinterland B&B’s or just visiting for the day, be sure take advantage of all that Bangalow and its surrounds have to offer.
