Sunsets on the beach or Sunday's on the roof? When you're on the Coast, why not do both? Sometimes there's nothing better than stopping, slowing down and taking some time out, and where better to do that than at The Byron in Byron Bay? If you want something a little closer to home, fly over to Southport's newest rooftop bar - But if you're just after a good feast, Carl Jr's newest burger bar is the way to go!
