Bangalow

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Bangalow is a village in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. It is near Lismore, Nimbin, and about 15 minutes drive inland from Byron Bay.

Understand[edit]

Once a small truck-stop village on the Pacific Highway, Bangalow is now a popular day-tripping destination, easily accessible from from Byron Bay. Bangalow features a single main street, lined with beautiful rows of preserved Federation shops. The past decade has seen a gentrification of Bangalow's main street. You'll now find many upscale cafes and restaurants as well as numerous homewares, antique and clothing stores.

Get in[edit]

Bangalow is best accessed with a private vehicle. The Pacific Highway (M1) now bypasses the town but it is easily accessed from the highway via either of the north/south exits. Both exits are well signposted and easy to notice. State route B62 runs through Bangalow and is the easiest way to access the town from Lismore (to the west) and Byron Bay (to the east). The portion of this road between Bangalow and Byron Bay is particularly beautiful, winding through hilly farmland and then descending the plateau to the coast where you can capture panoramic views of Cape Byron and the Pacific Ocean. Approximate driving times to Bangalow: from Byron Bay; 15-20 min from Lismore; 40min from Gold Coast; 1hr from Brisbane; 2hr

Get around[edit]

Bangalow is small and easily traversed by foot.
