A Byron Bay locality name, Suffolk Park adjoins Tallow Beach and this proximity has led to the area becoming very popular with professionals, artists and writers who enjoy the advantages without the traffic and tourism of the main town. Tallow Beach retains its natural beauty thanks to building restrictions, and houses are all but invisible on the walk down to the adjoining Broken Head nature reserve, a popular surfing spot.
A small but well-serviced shopping centre plus the local hotel makes town (a five minute drive north) an optional experience and a local bus service supplements the popularity of bikes for local transport. The adjoining Byron Hills and Bayside housing estates provide the bulk of family housing, while the beachside area also offers holiday accommodation.
