For down time you can just chill by the pool, relax in a hammock, or even join in a game of table tennis, pool, basketball or volleyball. It is also only a 10 minute walk into town which is ideal for exploring all the sights and relaxing on the beach.
There is a free Arts Factory shuttle bus running people from the main bus stop, located in the centre of town, right to the front door of the hostel, where you check in to the Mojo Surf Camp.
The Mojosurf Camp Byron Bay is made up of a tipi village in the rainforest. Each tipi has 4 single beds, which are fully made up. There are shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. There are twin and double upgrade options, however these are subject to availability and you need to contact Mojo directly to confirm.
Please note in the winter months we stay in dorm rooms as the tipi’s get a little chilly.
Every Tuesday night in the Arts Factory a whole host of talented individuals perform, ranging from musicians, right through to comedians and mime artists. The camp is also located right next to the Byron Bay Brewery which has a host of DJ's, gigs and live performances in the evenings. Our guides will also show you around the other copious amounts of places in town to see live music, DJ’s and dance the night away.
