Byron Bay’s Top Experiences for Wedding Guests

Balloon Aloft Byron Bay

Byron Bay, a melting pot of health-conscious folk, hippie-inspired vibes, boho-chic fashion, vibrant arts and entertainment matched with a bountiful food scene. With beautiful beaches meeting the tropical hinterland, it makes Byron such a dreamy wedding destination like no other.

With time before and after the wedding date, guests can explore, and discover a ‘Byron experience’ unique to them. With a little help from Byron’s locals, let us introduce the most magical Byron experiences for wedding guests, all unique to Australia’s most easterly mainland point.

What makes your experience a must-do activity in Byron Bay?   

Balloon Aloft Byron Bay
Many visitors to the area stick around the town centre, however, the true beauty of the rainbow region is its gorgeous green rolling hills and coastal surrounds. A Balloon Aloft Byron Bay flight is not only a fun adventure out of town but the only activity that encompasses such a vast perspective of this special place!

Cape Byron Distillery
You will not want to miss our unique distillery tour experience! Our tours begin on our balcony where you are greeted with a gin & tonic. We then take you on a journey through the story of our distillery and the regeneration of the property. During a stroll through our subtropical rainforest, become well acquainted with the native rainforest botanicals we use. Afterwards, we run a guided tasting while discussing the art of distillation.

There is no other activity like it, in this region and you can’t get much better than tennis games, a courtside DJ and an amazing spread with a stylish setup.

Behind the Barrel
Behind the Barrel takes all the trouble out of going to Byron’s best breweries and distilleries, by picking you up from and dropping you off at your accommodation. Bringing your drinks straight to you means no lining up whilst learning how the magic is made. What more could you want! We can also substitute beer for cider, seltzer or wine so even if your, not a beer drinker there’s something for everyone.

Byron Bay Dive Centre

What’s the inspiration or story behind what you do?  

Balloon Aloft Byron Bay
Hot Air Ballooning is the first form of aviation and an absolutely magical way to see the world from above. Here in Byron Bay, we are the first to see the sunrise in Australia. So, putting two and two together with such a fantastic team of experienced pilots and crew at our fingertips was a no brainer to launch Balloon Aloft Byron Bay.

Balloon Aloft Byron Bay

Cape Byron Distillery
Cape Byron Distillery is situated in the hinterland of Byron Bay on the beautiful Brook family farm. Established by co-founders Eddie Brook, and master distiller Jim McEwan, our distillery has been in operation since 2016 drawing inspiration from the native botanicals of the region, capturing the essence of Byron Bay.

6 Love Events
We have long been a part of this community within the music events industry and regular tennis coaching. We wanted to mix our love of these two things to bring people an amazing Byron experience that brought people together for a great time!

The Bolt Hole Cocktail Masterclass
Before we opened in 2015, there was nowhere to get a craft cocktail and explore an extensive back bar. Byron Bay enjoys tourists from all over the world – Melbourne, London, New York, for example. So, we wanted to fill the gap by creating a venue offering cocktails made with the same integrity and by the same people who have worked at award-winning venues in those cities.

The Bolt Hole Cocktail Masterclass

Art & Wine Co.
We want Art & Wine Co. to be a creative space that connects local artists & musicians to the community both locals and travellers.

Art & Wine Co. Byron Bay

Behind the Barrel
The craft beer and distillery scenes have really taken off all over Australia and Byron Bay is no exception. We felt the need to showcase this and be a one-stop-shop for people to visit local brewers and distillers in a day without needing to drive.

Byron Bay Dive Centre
After moving to Byron Bay 25 years ago and working for the previous owners of Byron Bay Dive Centre, my passion and dedication led me to become the business owner. With over 25 years’ experience as a skipper and dive instructor and 15 years of running Byron Bay Dive Centre, showing others the wonders of Julian Rocks and the Cape Byron Marine Park will always remain a highlight of my day.

How will guests feel after the experience?  Is there anything they take home with them?   

Balloon Aloft Byron Bay
All of our passengers walk away glowing with a big smile and a beautiful memory of our region. The experience is joyful, and after the flight, we spend a good time together over a delicious breakfast at the Three Blue Ducks restaurant while enjoying a reel of unforgettable pictures taken during the flight.

Balloon Aloft Byron Bay

Cape Byron Distillery
After taking part in our tour experience, guests can leave with a wealth of knowledge of the land, the history of the Big Scrub rainforest that once spread across the region, and the unique distillation process of Brookie’s Byron Dry Gin, among other products. After your tour, our balcony is the perfect space to share a seasonally crafted cocktail – with a picturesque macadamia orchard as the backdrop, it is ideal for photographs!

6 Love Events
We host a memorable experience in itself but, there are 6 Love prizes to be won for the tournaments and we will always keep in touch as we like to make friends within the experience! 

The Bolt Hole Cocktail Masterclass
When guests first enter The Bolt Hole, they are transported into a dimly lit refuge from Byron Bay’s sun-dazed, crowded streets. Entering via a vintage church door, visitors find themselves in a cosy, vintage haven, with references to hunting, steam trains and nautical escapades. 

Guests come in and they don’t just get a tasty well-crafted drink, they get an education into drinking culture and they love it!

The Bolt Hole Cocktail Masterclass

Is there a package or product popular with wedding guests?

Many newlyweds, families and groups of guests enjoy booking one of our VIP packages which means you get your own balloon, pilot and crew all to yourself.

It’s an intimate and interactive way to spend time with your loved ones that aren’t just drinking and eating… although we do a bit of that together in the end after the flight!

Cape Byron Distillery
Many couples who choose Byron Bay as their wedding destination can take the opportunity to fully immerse their guests in everything Byron. Looking for a pre or post-wedding activity?

Whether you’d like to spend the full day visiting venues or just the afternoon we have you covered. We can also customise the tour any way you like!

Behind the Barrel

Byron Bay Dive Centre
Whale watching tours (when in season; June – October) and sea turtle snorkel tours are our most popular activities for wedding guests. Neither activity require any previous experience or skill level which make them an easy and inviting option for many people. Couples that book snorkel tours have the option to upgrade to a scuba dive if they are certified, this is a great add on! 

How far in advance do you suggest booking?

Balloon Aloft Byron Bay
It is always a good idea to book as early as possible, especially for private bookings as we do book up in advance. In saying that, if you are just a couple, we sometimes have last-minute cancellations or midweek space so always worth calling into our friendly reservations team.

Cape Byron Distillery
Guests should book with as much notice as they can due to the limited space of our venue and the busy nature of Byron Bay. 

6 Love Events
We would suggest booking at least 3-4 months in advance to ensure you are able to book your preferred date. 

The Bolt Hole Cocktail Masterclass
If the wedding date is booked, it’s never too early to secure your experience at The Bolt Hole. We get bookings for 18 months in advance.

Art & Wine Co.
Wedding guests should book between 2-4 weeks out so, we can confirm the availability of the classes to avoid disappointment.

Behind the Barrel
If you are looking for a private tour we like at least a few days notice to organise. Otherwise, you can book as late as the day of the tour via our booking page

Behind the Barrel

Byron Bay Dive Centre
It is recommended to book as far in advance as possible, especially for large groups. We would recommend 3-4 months’ notice where possible. Over peak periods (Christmas/New Year, Easter, School Holidays), we are busy and can book up very quickly. Each vessel has a maximum capacity, therefore, please enquire with your numbers for availability.
