Byron Bay is a coastal town located in the northern part of New South Wales, Australia. As of 2021, the population of Byron Bay is estimated to be around 9,000 people. The town is known for its picturesque beaches, surf culture, and laid-back lifestyle. It is also home to the famous Cape Byron Lighthouse, which offers stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and is a popular spot for whale watching during migration season. The town attracts a large number of tourists each year, many of whom come to enjoy the surfing, snorkeling, and other outdoor activities on offer. Additionally, Byron Bay is known for its thriving music and arts scene, as well as its health and wellness culture, with numerous yoga studios, health food stores, and alternative medicine practitioners in the area.
Food options in Byron Bay are diverse, with plenty of healthy and vegetarian choices available. The air quality in Byron Bay is consistently good, scoring a perfect 10, and can provide a welcome respite for those looking to breathe easy. However, housing can be a challenge due to its high cost and limited availability, scoring only a 2. The healthcare system in Australia is generally good, and Byron Bay scores a 7 in this regard, though there isn’t a major hospital nearby.
Byron Bay is a safe place to live and work, with a score of 10 for safety, and the infrastructure is comparable to that of Canada or the US, scoring a 7. However, finding a comfortable place to work from can be difficult, as there are only a few small co-working spaces available and most cafes don’t offer easy access to outlets for remote workers.
Overall, Byron Bay can be an attractive destination for those looking to work remotely, with its natural beauty and relaxed vibe. However, it’s important to carefully consider the various factors that can impact the remote work experience, such as housing costs, healthcare access, and infrastructure limitations.

thanks for the video. Australia in general is very expensive it seems, I think new zealand would be too. It would be hard to beat Thailand for a digital nomad. Thailand has aced the Cost of Living with Standard of Living ratio.
The Wifi is great, its safe, food is amazing, weed is legal, people are good, more freedom, great beaches. There is something for everyone in Thailand.
