I'm well into the planning of our trip in April, and I'm having heaps of trouble finding somewhere to stay in Byron Bay with our camper trailer. The whole trip revolves around my wife's "need" to go to Byron Bay. And good on her too, if that what she wants, that's fine with me. Now, every park in that area has a 7 night minimum stay! We only need 2 nights, the 11th and the 12th. We are on the road for about 3 weeks and don't want to stay a week there, even though it's beautiful. Mabye this is the norm, but how do I get around this obsticle? Help...she's gonna kill me. :)

You could try Alstonville, there's a van park there.

7 night minimum - WOW!!!

Why not camp in a nearby town (quite a few to choose from) and just drive down/up for a look or, if she must stay in BB, a motel for a night.

Hi Chriso,
Try Lennox Heads, only a couple of km away and just as nice. I find Byron Bay over rated and if it wasn't for the fact that it is the most Easterly point on the mainland you just wouldn't go their.

agree with Andy's comment, stay in Lennox and just drive up to Byron as needed. Byron can get very conjested and not unusual to see a grid lock type situation in holiday season.
Worth the experience to see the place just the same

Hi Chriso

I couldn't agree more with Andy's comments.
BB is my home town when I was a kid and am ashamed of what it has grown into. So much for progress and the alternative lifestyle generations.

For alternative caravan parks close by try Suffolk Park, Broken Heads and Lennox Heads just to the south or alternatively Brunswick Heads to the north.

Regards
John

That is Easter and school holidays so that is why 7 nights.
I have the same hassle even at Mt Dutton Bay near Coffin bay at the same time.

3 years ago we stayed at Belongil Fields Caravan Park, Byron Bay.
They allowed 1 or 2 nights stay in those days.
We stayed New year’s day - not a very nice sight to behold.
Us, two old retirees in a large caravan, amongst 1000's (not an exaggeration) of drunken kids in plastic tents.
Wouldn't go back again in a peak period.
