Byron Bay has a reputation not only for being a beautiful wedding destination but also as a great honeymoon destination. From the Hinterland to the town centre, there’s so much to explore and, today we’re looking at activities you can add to your honeymoon itinerary whilst staying in the region. So, let’s get moving there’s much to see.

Zephyr Horses offer small, personalised horse riding experiences on the beach or in the sub-tropical woodlands.
