Choose holiday rentals in South Golden Beach, New South Wales

The lush Northern Rivers region of New South Wales is one of Australia’s most beautiful destinations and the tiny hamlet of South Golden Beach is a terrific base from which to explore this super region.

South Golden Beach sits on the northern edge of Byron Bay, close to the town that is world famous as the capital of counter culture and alternative lifestyles in Australia.

Its name gives away what is most appealing about the town – its gorgeous beach. Naturally, visitors will find a great choice of holiday rentals, including self-contained accommodation, villas and apartments.

Sunshine and surf

The holiday village of South Golden Beach is aptly named – the white sands of its shore are simply gorgeous and fabulous for families who want to spend their summer days chilling by the pristine waters of the Pacific.

Check out the holiday accommodation offering sea views and take advantage of their proximity to the shore to spend every possible moment exploring South Golden Beach’s golden sands and those of the adjoining towns of New Brighton and Ocean Shores.

This stretch of Australian coastline is quite stunning and there are many other beaches that may take your fancy. The tourist drive from Murwillumba to Tweed Heads offers a glimpse of just some of them while also taking you through the lovely Tweed River area. A river cruise or fishing charter is a great way to see the river.

For more adventure, drive a few short miles south to Byron Bay. For more than 40 years, Byron Bay has been the ultimate destination for surfers and water sports enthusiasts keen to test themselves on its surf and in its deep waters. Those seeking an alternative lifestyle have also made Byron Bay their own, while Australian teenagers flock there annually to let off steam during “Schoolies Week”.

Cape Byron, on which stands the Byron Bay lighthouse, is the easternmost part of Australia and no visit to the town is complete without a stroll to the lighthouse.

Nurture with Mother Nature

The Northern Rivers region is considered the most bio-diverse area in Australia and the area, also known as the Far North Coast, is home to five World Heritage listed national parks so take advantage of that opportunity to see Australian’s native flora and fauna in its natural habitat.

Close to South Golden Beach is Billinudgel Nature Reserve, the last remaining coastal forest wetland of its kind. To date, more than 50 threatened species have been recorded in the reserve while a wildlife corridor known as the Marshall’s Ridge links the reserve to the World Heritage site of the Mount Warning caldera.

Mount Jerusalem National Park, through which the Tweed River flows, is home to the Nightcap Range Important Bird Area thanks to its large population of Albert’s Lyrebirds and a number of other important bird species, as is Nightcap National Park, a few miles further south. Birdwatchers will not be able to resist spending time here.

Plan your days out from your South Golden Beach holiday accommodation so you don’t miss any of this area’s great attractions.

Typically tropical

South Golden Beach is situated on the northern fringes of New South Wales, close to the border with Queensland and enjoys the sub-tropical climate typical of this part of Australia. Like the nearby Gold Coast, Northern Rivers enjoys lots of all-year-round sunshine – expect summer temperatures to reach a daily average of 29?C with winter days often reaching 20?C on the mercury. Look for holiday rentals with air conditioning to keep those summer nights bearable but expect to carry a light jacket on autumn or winter evenings.

Getting here

If the Northern Rivers region is your immediate destination and you’re travelling from the UK, you can get direct flights to Brisbane from London Heathrow Airport. A connecting flight to Gold Coast Airport will bring you within an hour of South Golden Beach and car rental will make the trip to your holiday accommodation a quick one. There are also regular bus and coach services shuttling between Brisbane, Sydney and the towns of the Northern Rivers.

Fantastic time at Banjos - didn't want to leave!

5 of 5
A lovely home in the Byron hinterland. A relaxing, peaceful location with amazing views from the main verandah. Ideally located a short distance from Byrons vibrant, eclectic vibe. The house is fully equipped with all the mod cons, games for the kids and of course the amazing pool was just the icing on the cake after a busy day at the beach......Ideal accomodation for families. Excellent communication from the owner, very helpful sending local information prior to the stay. Highly recommended.

Excellent Stay

5 of 5
WOW. What a magnificent studio. Attention to detail is absolute. Lots of the little extras did not go unnoticed. A great way to unwind after a very frantic Christmas in Sydney. I don't think its going to be a "Secret" for much longer after spreading the word to family & friends. Return visit is a must. (Our visit was Jan. 2018)
