Byron Bay English Language School, Byron Bay, Australia

What we like about the school

  • Byron Bay is one of the top destinations our students liked most

Byron Bay English Language School

The language school Byron Bay English Language School was founded in Byron Bay, Australia in 1998. Byron Bay is a surfers paradise! This beach town on the most Easterly point of Australia, 2 hours by car from the city of Brisbane, is filled to the brim with boutique shops, quirky bars and unique restaurants of all varieties. It is known for its surfing and scuba diving sites, with grey nurse sharks and leopard sharks frequenting the area. There is a beautiful hike along a walking track to the Cape Byron lighthouse, with one route taking you along the coast where, if you are lucky enough, you can spot manta rays! Byron Bay English Language School is less than 10 minutes away from the main beach, where you can dip your toes into the crystal clear sea or relax on the beach after a day of studies. The school is spread over two floors and has a range of facilities including an outside garden area for after lesson down time, an inside common area, a semi commercial kitchen, 2 balcony areas along with numerous spacious classrooms. Every Friday evening the school prepares for its students a barbecue, meeting the expectations of a traditional Australian BBQ! At the front desk there is an option to hire a bike, which is not just a great way to get around Byron Bay itself but also to explore the surrounding areas.



Byron Bay English Language School is a registered Cambridge examination centre and offers exam preparation courses. The school offers a number of plus activities that you can combine with your lessons to heighten the experience, including surf lessons, scuba diving lessons, yoga classes and learning or improving on a number of musical instruments. True to the vibe in Byron Bay, the school is conscious of and has adopted a Corporate Social Responsibility to make the school as green friendly as possible, with solar panels sourcing 40% of the school's power.


The school address is: 1 Carlyle Street, 2481 - Byron Bay, Australia (see on map)
