Please find below our guide to cycling in Byron Bay.
Family Friendly Bike Paths
Looking for a two-wheeled adventure for your entire family to enjoy? Suffolk Beachfront Holiday Park is the perfect destination. Running right past our front door is the start of a 15km network of coastline bike paths that take in some of the best local scenery. The family-friendly paths are flat, purpose built and great for all ages. The paths will take you into the center of town for a coffee and a swim or you can venture further afield to explore the many shops and studios located in the Arts and Industry Estate. At low tide, you can also ride your bike out of the holiday park and along Tallows Beach into the Byron CBD.
