Wellness & Adventure.

Relax, Heal & have fun

Focused on your wellness

Reward your body, mind & soul

The Bay team understands that, at the end of a week of therapy, it’s important to have time to integrate the work you have done and relax and have fun. We’ve put together a variety of activities designed to appeal to our clients.
Whether its rainforest walks, horse riding, shopping or simply walking on one of our pristine isolated beaches, your recovery is always supported and front of mind.

Massage & spa

Along with The Bay Method, our team will tailor your program to include a range of evidence-based therapeutic methods that include traditional Western psychological, integrative medical practice, and Eastern mindfulness techniques. As The Bay approach considers the whole person, not just your thoughts and feelings, we understand the benefit of holistic treatments such as relaxation massage, acupuncture, yoga, meditation and our day spa.


We regularly take our guests to meet our surf coach to try their hand at surfing. The beaches and local breaks around Byron offer both experienced and novice surfers the opportunity to get in the surf and either rekindle a lost passion or try surfing for the first time. If you would like to experience surfing for the first time let our guest services team know and they will make this exciting activity a reality for you.

Horse riding

If horse riding is your passion, or you have an interest in learning how to ride, we encourage you to take a beach ride at beautiful Belongil beach. The horse-riding team will guide you out onto the beach to ride and swim with the horses. As Equine Therapy and working with horses is a large part of The Bay therapeutic approach, our team always encourages time spent engaged in equine activities.

Nutrition & your Chef

Our chef will work with you to develop a range of meals best suited to your dietary needs, likes and dislikes, to provide nutritious, healthy meals during your stay and on your return home. The Bay sources the best local organic produce to offer our guests fresh, seasonal, delicious food and provides an education on how your food can be used to maximise your health outcomes and your general physical and mental well-being. Cooking classes can be included in your program.

Deep sea fishing

Deep sea fishing has always been a popular activity with our guests and, when the weather allows, our skipper will take you out on reefs where the fishing is no less than world-class. We can also organise for our chef to cook your fresh catch.

Rainforest & hinterland

The Byron Bay hinterland is home to an abundance of pristine waterfalls and rainforest walks. The hinterland also offers rolling hills, beautiful vistas overlooking the coast and a series of quaint villages to be explored. Take the day to explore the wonderful variety of rainforests and waterfalls while taking your time to exploring the village lifestyle along the way.

Tennis & golf

Gentle exercise combined with a picturesque course can be enjoyed at Byron Bay Golf Club. Or work on your forehand and serve the local tennis club. Talk to our team about organising either of these popular activities for you.


The Byron Shire markets are world renowned for being eclectic and bohemian with a mixture of weird and wonderful items available. The Byron and surrounding markets are always a popular option for guests who are looking to immerse themselves in the local alternative culture or simply relax and people watch.

Scuba Diving

Subject to approval from our doctor, those who have a scuba diving certificate are able to join the Byron Bay dive center and travel out to Julien Rocks. Located 3.5km directly east of Byron bay main beach and sitting in the east coast current, Julian Rocks offers even the experienced diving world class diving and marine life. Julien Rocks is a marine reserve and therefore is protected from recreational fishing activities and is home to a Grey Nurse shark nursery, turtles and a variety of southern Barrier reef species.
