Guide to Bangalow. Close to Byron Bay in the norther rivers are of Australia, Bangalow is a beautiful country town, with lots of independent stores and delicious places to eat. They have monthly markets that are very busy and recommended you arrive early. Do consider heading there during the week as well and having some of the best donuts of your life!
Shopping In Bangalow.
There is such a mix of shops here. Island luxe is very lux and to be honest not my sort of price point, candles are $150. But I could appreciate the styling and the vast lounges for husbands to sit at whilst their other halves decide which dress to purchase! Our Corner Store, a modern take on old school general stores, has stylish timber brushes and aluminium containers. The Flower Bar is housed in the most beautiful old brick building and has a range of dried and fresh flowers. Pop in to just stare as I did or treat your self to a beautiful bouquet. Head up station street, towards the local hall, to discover small local designers in wooden huts. Pop into the Bangalow Pharmacy for a international range of skincare and perfumes often seen only in Sephora!
If you loved the look of our food from Folk head to their sister in Bangalow, Wood. Lots of plant-based food that is sooo delicious. Wanting something simple? Have bakery takeaway from Butcher, Baker, Bangalow. Or sit inside for something a bit fancier. I had their burger with a side of fries, and my sister had their chicken salad. Both were yummy and we both enjoyed jam donuts takeaway for pudding. They are some of the best donuts I’ve eaten! If you are celebrating or just want to get quite fancy, try The Italian Diner which made me feel like I was back in Italy.
Bangalow is famed for its monthly Sunday markets where locals sell their products from food to candles to pottery. Often extremely busy, support the local school by paying for parking in their grounds. No dogs because of the crowds. There is plenty of shade and you can easily spend the day there!

Car is the best way and then you can stop off at the local vantage points and take in the countryside view and seascape. There are plenty of buses that leave from Byron and Ballina as well.
