Byfield is rich with diversity and forms one of the largest unspoiled eco-systems on the east coast of Australia. The region's major waterway, Waterpark Creek, is also host to ancient and towering remnant rainforest with many resident native birds and animals.

The small village of Byfield is a haven for craft and nature lovers. In the neighbouring areas there are numerous picturesque camping areas on offer, with alternative accommodation at Ferns Hideaway Resort, Rainforest Ranch, Waterpark Getaway, and Byfield Getaway just to name a few. These accommodation houses specialize in luxury log cabins and romantic bungalows. The area is also home to a world-class potter's gallery known as Nob Creek Pottery, and has a number of spectacular swimming holes and rewarding walking trails.
