Vintage Aussie surf culture at new Byron Bay hotel

As a slick combination of a hotel and hostel, the new The Surf House in the popular New South Wales coastal town of Byron Bay has opened with a  vintage surf culture vibe. 

Set in the heritage-listed Byron Bay Council Chambers building, The Surf House has a prime location just two streets back from Byron’s Main Beach. 

The hotel has Byron’s only rooftop open-air bar. Guests can be accommodated in either private queen rooms with balconies, ensuite bathrooms and ocean views; or a number of shared room options that can sleep four, six or eight guests.

Guests can take advantage of yoga, personal training classes, guided tours of the Byron Bay lighthouse, complimentary use of surf boards and free high speed WiFi from multiple working spaces. 

What do we love? Why, the interiors of course – decorated with beach-style bric-a-brac and vintage Aussie surf posters and photos, including a framed image of former Australian Prime Minister, the late Bob Hawke as a young man. Presumably, Hawke himself, known for his love of a cold one, would have approved of the local beers available at the bar from Byron Bay brewery Stone & Wood; along with Brookie’s Gin from Cape Byron Distillery.
