JonsonSt-MapWalking south down Jonson St takes you away from the beach to the calmer southern end where the locals shop and hang out.

There is plenty of parking on the street, in the carpark between Palace cinemas and Woolworths and behind the shops. From here you can explore some of Byron’s best loved, locally owned businesses.

Directly opposite the cinema there is Red Ginger, Bell and Ford and the Byronian Cafe. Just up the street is The Source Bulk Foods and in the arcade behind is the Relax Haven Day Spa.
