Byron Bay is a coastal town in the far-northeastern corner of New South Wales, known as Cavvanbah (‘meeting place’) to the local Arakwal Aboriginal people.

The area is considered subtropical and does get hot in summer, reaching averages of almost 27°C, so please be sure to stay hydrated and wear sunscreen when out during the day. Rain in the evenings is also common. Byron is also famed as a hippie Mecca, a surfing haven and a café paradise.

As a part of The 10th International Somatechnics Conference, we plan to offer access to a variety of Byron-centric activities. Tune back soon for more details.
