If you have an inner Tarzan you might not be one to sit back and relax on your getaway. Never fear because when you stay with Reflections Holidays, there’s always an option to make sure your getaway is adventure holiday.

NSW Far North Coast adventure activities

Sky Diving

Is freefalling your idea of fun? Get your endorphins sky high with a Sky Dive across the beautiful Byron Bay for some of the best sky diving in NSW. Dropping from an altitude of 15,000ft you will be able to take in the sights of the amazing beaches and spectacular hinterland ranges all the way to Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

Hang Gliding

Take a tandem flight over Byron Bay’s coastal National Park and take in the lighthouse from a bird’s eye view. Feel freedom at its best as you watch for the coastal wildlife including sea eagles, turtles, dolphins and even the occasional humpback whale.

Take a Hot Air Balloon ride

For something a little less terrifying, a hot air balloon ride over the Byron Bay hinterland could be the adventure you are looking for. You can still get your head in the clouds, but you’ll have more time to take in the breathtaking scenery with a loved one or your family as the sun comes up over the Northern Rivers. Finish the morning with a glass of champagne and continue with your adventurous getaway.


To get the most out of all the activities in the Byron Bay region, stay at one of the Reflections Parks in Brunswick Heads or Byron itself. You have the choice of Massy Greene, Ferry Reserve and Brunswick Heads in the calm of Brunswick Heads, but also offering enough to keep you excited with the great surf and water activities.

For the adventures close to town in Byron Bay then check in to Reflections Byron Bay. Not far from the town centre, you can walk or peddle to come of the local attractions as well as some of the best spots for lunch and dinner.
