Taste of Love Festival – Byron Bay

Byron Community Centre

We are taking over the entire Byron Bay Community Centre for the duration of the Festival and will have the run of the whole facility and the Byron Bay Community College (see map below) plus various social spaces including a courtyard where meals will be available. (Please pre-order meals). 


The Byron Community Centre is located at 69 Jonson St and the Byron Bay Community College is located at 107 Jonson Street, Byron Bay, in the alley way up the stairs first floor, NSW, Australia. Please CLICK on the image to enlarge.


There is time limited pay parking near the Community Centre (mostly 2 hours only), so please make sure you have all day parking which is available at a number of locations nearby if needed. See the additional Parking Map at the bottom of the page. 
Note: It is NOT an option to feed the meters in Byron Bay anywhere, as they have strict controls on the amount of time in any given region, so that even if you move your car to another location in the same zone, you may be liable for a fine if you overstay the listed time period allocated to that zone.
If you are in the Festival all day, you will NEED to find ALL DAY parking. We suggest the Butler Street Car Park as indicated in the map below.
