Tyagarah Nature Reserve

Natural Attractions

Tyagarah Nature Reserve protects a lovely strip of coastline, which runs for seven kilometres between Byron Bay and Brunswick Heads. The coastal heath provides a gorgeous backdrop to the reserve’s unspoilt beach.

Catch a few waves, stroll by the water, build sandcastles with the kids or throw your line into the water for a spot of fishing – all within easy reach of Byron Bay township, yet peacefully away from the crowds.

In spring, eager whale-watchers gather on the beach, hoping to catch sight of the humpback whale mums and their new calves passing by on their way home from the Great Barrier Reef to Antarctica.

There are bushwalking tracks behind the dunes that self-reliant bushwalkers will enjoy exploring. Or, you can just kick back and relax in the picnic area.

The beach adjacent to the reserve, south of the picnic area at the end of Grays Lane, has been designated a ‘clothes optional beach’ (nudist beach) by Byron Shire Council.
