The Magic Bus is a local iconic transporter which has now become a part of the Byron Shire landscape. The double-decker will see its sister act born next month when a hop-on-hop-off tour service is launched in Byron Bay.

The new tour bus is an open-top red double-decker bus, restored to its former beauty. The bus tour, run by the same local family who run the psychedelic Magic Bus charter service, is a one-hour circuit of Byron Bay’s most scenic attractions that lets passengers hop off and back on at a later stage, to enjoy the Bay’s walks, beaches and lookouts, before finishing off the circuit.

The tours begin next Tuesday January 5. For more in formation visit www.byronbaysightseeing.com.au.

  1. This has got to be a winner for locals too, I heard a rumor that locals will get free rides at least in the early stages.
