5. Osprey Spa at Elements of Byron
If your mind and body could use some extra love and care during your next escape to Byron Bay, a relaxing day at Osprey Spa will leave you feeling rejuvenated and centered. The world-class spa at Elements of Byron offers a variety of treatments and experiences so you can take care of your body and mind from head to toe.

Or, select a customisable spa ritual, combining multiple body soaks, scrubs, and massages for a luxurious and calming experience. The spa itself is airy, light-filled, and surrounded by nature.
6. Coastal Walks
Walking offers a wonderful blend of mental and physical benefits that contribute to overall well-being, and Byron Bay has some of the best walking trails in all of Australia. On the mental front, taking a stroll outdoors can provide a refreshing break from daily routines, reduce stress, and improve mood by releasing endorphins.
It’s also a chance to clear the mind, enhance creativity, and foster mindfulness as you connect with your surroundings. Take leisurely walks along the breathtaking coastal trails to center yourself and take in the stunning beauty of Byron Bay.
The Cape Byron Walking Track leads to the iconic Cape Byron Lighthouse, offering spectacular views of the ocean and surrounding landscape. Whether it’s a leisurely walk or a brisk stride, every step brings you closer to a healthier body and a calmer mind.
7. Trybe Wellness
Located right in Byron Bay, Trybe is a holistic wellness facility dedicated to reducing the effects of stress on your body. This is a place where you can detox and destress using the tools of infrared saunas, cold plunge, breath work & adaptogens.
Learn the art of conscious breathing through workshops that teach techniques for relaxation and increased mindfulness. Infrared saunas offer a host of benefits that go beyond the traditional sauna experience. The gentle yet penetrating heat of infrared rays deeply warms the body, promoting relaxation and stress reduction.
This therapeutic heat also helps to relax muscles, soothe joint pain, and increase blood circulation, which can aid in post-workout recovery and alleviate discomfort from conditions like arthritis. Moreover, the detoxifying effect of infrared saunas, as they induce profuse sweating, can assist in flushing out toxins and impurities from the body.
These combined benefits make infrared saunas a popular choice for those seeking holistic wellness and rejuvenation.
8. Bioenergetic Scent Journey
Scent and essential oils can be a powerful way to get present and connect the body and mind. Synthesis Organics offers a Bioenergetic Scent Journey where you can create your own organic essential oil blend or roll-on perfume.
Meet Theme Rains, the visionary behind Synthesis Organics. She’s not just the founder and owner; she’s a certified Aromatherapist, Energetic Healer, Psychotherapist, and Counsellor. She’s woven her expertise into a unique experience that guides you in crafting your very own blend.
The journey starts with a soul-soothing meditation and a body awareness exercise, aligning you with your inner wisdom on a deeper level.
9. Bike Tours
A Byron Bay bike tour is an activity you can enjoy solo or with the whole family. Bicycling offers a wealth of physical advantages that contribute to overall well-being. Engaging in cycling promotes cardiovascular health by elevating heart rate and improving circulation.
This low-impact exercise helps to strengthen muscles, particularly in the lower body, while enhancing joint flexibility and overall mobility. Additionally, cycling supports weight management, aids in building endurance, and is known to boost lung capacity.
As a bonus, it’s a fun way to enjoy the outdoors and explore new places, making it a versatile and enjoyable approach to staying active and healthy.
Better by Bike offers a self-guided tour of the Nothern Rivers Rail Trail. The company supplies you with a high-end Moustache E- Bikes coupled with shuttle transportation to and from the newly opened 24km long Crabbes Creek to Murwillumbah section of the Trail.
Or, opt for a self-guided E-bike tour that includes the rainforest of Mount Jerusalem National park, enchanting Unicorn Falls, and the best bits of the Northern Rivers Rail Trail.
