Love living in Northern NSW

Northern NSW is where the mountains meet the ocean and you can have the best of both worlds. With an idyllic climate all year round and surrounded by some of the most beautiful and breathtaking natural vistas, who wouldn’t love living here?

It’s a paradise for nature lovers, surfers, foodies, artists and anyone who just wants to enjoy a slower pace of life. In Northern NSW, you can immerse yourself in the local café culture, visit interesting and eclectic shops, take a stroll along miles and miles of quiet beaches or take a hike to a secret waterfall that will take your breath away.

And, best of all, the locals who call this place home are always friendly and welcoming. But, be prepared, a short shopping trip may lead to an afternoon of sipping lattes in a local café with people you’ve only just met!

A nature lover’s paradise

Living in Northern NSW means experiencing all that nature has to offer. Wherever you are, whether in Byron Bay, Lismore, Murwillumbah, Ocean Shores, Tweed Coast or Mullumbimby, you’re only a short drive away from a stunning stretch of deserted beach, a cool lake for a leisurely dip or a short hike through an ancient forest.

For nature lovers, this area is simply heaven. Not only can you take in a glorious sunrise on a quiet beach at Casuarina or Lennox Head, but you can then enjoy an afternoon hike around the majestic forest surrounding Mount Warning. And, you’ll most likely discover a vista, view, billabong or waterfall that you never knew existed.

Culinary delights from around the world

If you’re a foodie, you never have to venture too far from home to experience some truly amazing culinary delights from every region you could imagine. In fact, the Tweed Coast region is said to be one of Australia’s best gourmet food destinations.

From local restaurants to beachside cafés, there’s never a shortage of great food, fresh local produce and some of the best coffee you’ll find anywhere in the country. Exploring the local eateries is like taking a trip around the world, all without having to get on a plane.

Of course, we can’t forget the local farmer’s markets when you feel like indulging in some of the freshest produce at home. This area abounds with local growers, orchards and producers of all sorts of delectable goods. Fresh food has never tasted so good.

A haven for creatives and those who appreciate them

Another thing we love about Northern NSW is how almost everyone has some sort of creative talent that they want to share. Artists, crafters, writers, photographers and musicians are inspired and motivated by their beautiful surroundings and tight-knit communities.

Don’t worry if you’re not the least bit creative yourself. You can still enjoy a stroll through local galleries or listen to stories from market stallholders about their beautiful craft pieces that you can buy and treasure for years to come.

A healthier and more relaxed lifestyle

Living in Northern NSW is all about slowing down your pace of life. Here you can take a step outside and breathe in the fresh mountain or sea air and truly appreciate being alive. It’s about taking your time to just be.

If you’ve ever dreamed of taking up yoga, tai chi or meditation, you’re sure to find a local group that will welcome you with open arms. And, you don’t have to go to Bali or Thailand for a day spa experience. Visit one of the many spas in our region and while the day away being pampered to your heart’s content.

This region abounds with all sorts of natural therapy clinics and practitioners to help you become healthier, more relaxed and live your best life.

Of course, amongst all this relaxation, most of us still have to earn a living. But, don’t worry, there are plenty of work opportunities around the region. The area is filled with agricultural and horticultural businesses as well as thriving manufacturing companies and an ever-growing tourism industry.

Local events and festivals

When you’re done relaxing and want to enjoy some fun, Northern NSW has some of the best events and festivals anywhere in the country. There’s the famous Bluesfest in Byron Bay, the Lismore Lantern Parade, the Byron Bay International Film Festival and many more events that happen right around the region all through the year.

Living in Northern NSW is all about a more relaxed lifestyle within supportive communities. Here, you’re surrounded by nature but never far away from all the amenities that you’re going to need. If you’re thinking about relocating to this region, you definitely won’t be disappointed. We love it here and we think that you will too.
