It took us about 20 minutes to get to the Crystal Castle. I absolutely loved it there. The whole place is so magical and surrounded with pure nature, therefore the view of byron’s hinterland was marvellous. I was a bit afraid of the thought that the place would be full of tourists but this wasn’t the case at all. We had plenty of time to stroll around the whole area which was provided with a considerable number of stunning crystals and interesting figures. I also took part in two extremely informative and interesting workshops which were definitely a highlight of the day. I absolutely recommend this place to everyone who is into the whole magic of crystals.

Our tour guide Tom was so so lovely. Very knowledgeable and knew alot of byron bay and it’s history. He took us to all the spots and they were beautiful, unfortunately the weather was not the best that day but it was all worth it. The crystal castle was amazing and definitely worth a visit. Lunch was provided with a BBQ made by Tom just burgers and chips, simple and easy, you can’t complain! Anyway we just want to say thanks to Tom as he was genuinely such a good person and tour guide.

I enjoyed the whole day! The tour guide Tom was lovely and knowledgeable and cooked us lunch! I especially loved the Crystal castle and the gardens! The lighthouse was beautiful. Could've missed going to bangalow, not much to see or do but was relaxing having lunch there listening to all the birds in the trees

Tour guide was very informative (knew a lot about Byron bay and it's history) and easy going. We went to some interesting spots, however the lunch was okay but just a burger on a bbq and some chips, which wasn't what we envisioned for the lunch considering the lunch write up. Overall a good tour!

brilliant day tom was amazing couldn't have been more helpful
