The natural beauty and bohemian vibe of Byron Bay attracts artists. As a result, there are 8 galleries in Byron Bay. With three galleries in town and the other five clustered in Belongil Beach 3.5 km away, I suggest cycling or driving unless you don’t mind a 40 minute walk each way. They’re all mapped for you at the end of the article.
