Top Rainy Day Activities in Byron Bay

The winter weather has arrived.. but never fear.. I have made a list of fun things to keep you entertained until the sun shines again..

  • Catch a movie at the cinema

    Make sure you show your student ID at Palace Cinema to get a $13 student ticket or visit on a Monday when all tickets are only $10!

    Not only is our library a beautiful space to relax and keep warm, it also has an independent exhibition space for local artists attached. Check out The Lone Goat Gallery‘s facebook page to see what they have showing at the moment.
