Art Galleries

The free-spirited, bohemian vibes of the Northern Rivers have long attracted artists and creatives from all over Australia and the world. Byron Bay is now home to a plethora of contemporary and aboriginal art galleries. This comes as no surprise as the far north coast region is a mecca for culture, music, and the freedom of self-expression. Discover the lively visual arts scene during your stay at East On Byron.
