Like @Drover says, Byron used to be a great place. Now it's hard to find a parking spot and when you do the meter charges put Sydney and Brisbane to shame. Some nice places to see and the weekend markets aren't too bad either. Our last trip there it took over and hour from the highway to the town because council decide to trim the pine trees on the road in, closing it for 10 minutes at a time then let 20 0r 30 cars past each way. That was my last visit to Byron. >:(

Great!! So I really have no chance what's so ever to find a parking space for a Ranger and Caravan.
I'll see what the family wants to do on the day.

Unless its an abnormal day family can get out of car and do the sight seeing, shopping for trinkets while your just sitting in the traffic getting into town, push bikes for them, a few goods mags to read for driver... ...I'm sure its improved by now surely, few years since I made the journey.

If time is not your enemy give it a go, Byron is very senic and you can walk to Australia's most eastern point at the light house, Im sure you can find somewhere just outside of town to grop the van for a couple of hours (these old blokes here have no patience) )-:

Us old blokes don’t have time time to waste sitting in traffic jams.
