You can sum up Australia's easternmost town by saying it's a melting pot of surf culture, alternative philosophies and hedonistic indulgence. Or you can explain its magic in images: humpback whales cruising past the headland, rainbows on the mountains across the bay and hang-gliders coasting above the lighthouse. Our new-age paradise is known for its sweeping surf beaches, trademark lighthouse, lush rainforests and colorful mix of people. It's the place to try yoga on the beach at sunrise, massages and mud wraps at hinterland retreats and some of Australia's best regional dining.
