The small rocky headland where Kirra Point separates Kirra Beach to the north and Coolangatta Beach to the south is one of the world’s best surf breaks, and home to the annual Quiksilver Pro and Roxy Pro Surf Championships—right at the doorstep of Kirra Surf Apartments on Coolangatta. Welcome to surfer heaven.
Built on top of the site of one of the first surf shops in the world, Kirra Surf Apartments still houses the Kirra Surf Shop. As part of the deal to build the Kirra Surf Apartments, the Kirra Surf Shop was promised a home on the ground floor of the building. Forever. Now, for anyone seeking expert local surf knowledge and the best selection in surf gear can visit the ground floor to experience a world where you can eat, breathe and live surfing. To catch a glimpse of the shop from their Facebook page take this link.
Aside from the world class surf beach, Kirra Beach sits as the midpoint from which you can launch your holiday adventure in either direction of the coast. Travel north for 30 minutes and you hit Surfers Paradise. Go beyond and the rest of the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast awaits. Travel south and you strike Tweed Heads, the town that sits on the border of Queensland and New South Wales—the town famous for occupying two time zones due to the fact that New South Wales observes daylight saving and Queensland does not. You may be walking down the street in Tweed Heads and cross the road into another time zone. If you find yourself in Tweed Heads, you will also be in Byron Bay.
Byron Bay has a long history, with original settlement by the Arakwal Aborigine people, their name for the area is Cavvanbah, meaning “meeting place”. An apt name by any measure of what the area represents now. As early as the 60s, longboard surfers discovered the natural breaks at The Pass, Wategos, and Cosy Corner. Not long after, the hippies came and colonised the nearby town of Nimbin. By 1973 and several music festivals later, Byron Bay cemented itself in the psyche of Australia as one of the foremost alternative tourist destinations of choice, and a permanent fixture for a large number of artists, crafts people and alternative lifestylers.
Many festivals have become embedded in the Byron Bay calendar of events such as East Coast Blues & Roots Festival, Byron Bay Surf Festival, Splendour in the Grass and the Writers Festival. The area has also become an important mecca for pleasure seekers and exhausted urbanites seeking spiritual renewal.
For visitors to the area, the services dedicated to personal discovery, growth and revitalisation are very popular andcompelling reasons to come to Byron Bay.
