Getting Here and Getting Around

Bangalow is about 15mins drive in-land from Byron Bay. We are in the heart of the hinterland country community. It has a rare authentic old country town feel, but with a rich and modern array of cafes and boutique shops. The historic Showgrounds and A&I Hall are really one of the most beautiful community grounds you’ll ever see.

Bangalow is on the Pacific Highway between Brisbane and Sydney. We’re about 2hrs south from Brisbane and about 45mins from the Tweed. Coming up from the South, we are about 20mins from Ballina and 3hrs north of Coffs Harbour. You can also come west from Casino via Lismore on the Bruxner Hwy and the old Bangalow Road.

There’s lots of accommodation in the area, so make a weekend of it!

Parking Information

There’s ample parking on the streets around Bangalow. We’ll also have limited parking at the Showgrounds for $5, but get there early! Look for the BBQ & Bluegrass signs! And while you’re here, be sure to take a walk through town. You’ll love it here.
