When is the best time to visit Byron Bay?
Summer is the high season in Byron Bay and the most popular time of year to travel on flights to Ballina. Temperatures of about 28°C make this the ideal time for water activities and spending time on the beach. Hotels can fill up quickly in the summer, so make sure you get the best rate by booking your accommodation early.
Both autumn and spring have pleasant daytime temperatures of about 22° to 25°C. These are great times to book airfare to Ballina if you’re looking for warm weather while avoiding the peak summer crowds. Spring is also the season that experiences the lowest amount of rainfall in Byron Bay.
Consider booking tickets to Ballina for a winter getaway if you’re after a bargain break. Winter is the low season, so many hotels lower their rates. Average daytime temperatures of about 19°C mean it’s a bit chilly for lounging on the beach and heading into the water unless you’re donning a wetsuit, but it’s a great time for coastal walks and many outdoor activities.
Whale-watching season in Byron Bay lasts between June and November, so plan to book cheap flights to Ballina during this time if you’d love a chance to spot these mammals in the wild.
