Year Round

Australia is an all-year-round destination, but during the summer, December to February, it is hot in Western Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland. At the Great Barrier Reef, most rain falls in January and February. In northern Queensland and parts of the Northern Territory, roads may flood during the 'green' season, January to March. The ski season takes place during June to October in New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania. Australia's seasons are the opposite of those of the Northern Hemisphere.

Spring: September-November
Summer: December-February
Fall: March-May

Local Info

Cape Byron and it's famous lighthouse is as far east as you can travel in mainland Australia. A scenic walk takes in stunning coastal views and between May and October whales can be seen frolicking in the ocean on their annual journey to and from the waters of the Antarctic. Cape Byron was named by Captain Cook in 1770 after Captain James Byron, Grandfather of poet Lord Byron.

The original inhabitants of Byron Bay called it "Cavanbah" which was the local Aborigine's name for meeting place. Today, people from all over the world come to Byron Bay to meet and enjoy the subtropical climate, the breathtaking natural beauty, and the diverse mix of visitors and residents from millionaires to mystics, surfers and alternative life-stylers.

Byron Bay has wonderful all round temperate climate, clean air, clean water, and pristine beaches. A hinterland visit takes you to beautiful, lush coastal rainforest.

Byron Bay is also a mecca for alternative health and new age spiritual practitioners. It is unpretentious, friendly, tolerant, open, fun, and very, very beautiful. The area truly offers something for everyone.
Owners & Hosts

Gerry Harvey is an entrepreneur and one of Australias best known retailers. He is a family man, breeder of thoroughbred racehorses and Chairman of the retail chain Harvey Norman Holdings Limited. In the early 60s, Gerry, with good friend Ian Norman, started the first Norman Ross store. In 1982, Gerry Harvey and Ian Norman opened the first Harvey Norman store at Auburn in Sydney. In 1987, the company floated and was the springboard for massive growth. Harvey Norman stores can now be found across Australia, New Zealand, Slovenia, Singapore and Ireland. Today, Harvey Norman stores number over 200 worldwide. Gerry has been quoted as saying: Ive never been afraid to try something new. This philosophy and entrepreneurial spirit later lead him to his first tourism venture on the far north coast of NSW. In 2002, an opportunity was presented to Gerry and Harvey Norman which was way off first base in the field he knew best. After 40 years of retail involvement, a tourism development in Byron Bay was thrust upon him. The uniqueness of the site and the potential it showed in attracting tourists to Byron Bay convinced Gerry that he and Harvey Norman should purchase the site and build 92 room resort which had been previously approved by the The Land & Environment Court. He decided to move forward and in September 2003 ground clearing commenced on the approx. 45 acre rainforest site. In addition to the accommodation, a conference centre, restaurant, pool, a superb spa, boardwalks and extensive landscaping was undertaken and constructed. The sensitive nature of the rainforest has always been in the front of Gerrys mind and as a result, less than 10% of the total land is being used. Massive re-planting is underway with predominantly native plants to maintain its original natural appearance. When Gerry first saw the land, he said its a bloody good block of land and its going to be a great resort when we finish.
