It's not just in Byron, I did a WWOOF stay in Brisbane too. Helpx is also popular in Australia. Both of these would only be helpful if you are intersted in or will to do some work trade during your stay. Or couchsurfing.com or airbnb.com might be helpful also.

Hi Rachel! You could check the Vacation Rentals tab on Gogobot to rent a flat..just go to the Brisbane page and click the tab near hotels and restaurants..if you are looking for something a bit more bohemian, you could try couchsurfing.com - these are free homestays, it's like a big social network where your host spends time with you as well.
