A mecca for celebs, the fashion pack and hip honeymooners, Byron Bay is Australia's answer to Ibiza - a stylish party paradise. The jewel in its glittering crown is The Byron at Byron.

This elegant eco-resort, a five-minute drive from town, is set in 45 acres of sub-tropical rainforest. There are 92 sleek apartments with freestanding baths and plasma TVs; the Superior Suites even have two balconies.

Days are all about relaxing and rejuvenating by the infinity pool or in the on-site spa, or stroll to Tallow Beach - a seemingly endless stretch of golden sand and surf-perfect waves.

After dinner, put on your jewelled kaftan and head into town for some serious posing.

Wow factor:
The restaurant offers an idyllic outdoor setting, peerless service and some of Australia's best modern cuisine.

Flight time:
From 23 hours and 45 minutes via Singapore to Brisbane.
