Me and my friend were looking to escape melbourne winter, and were seeking for our dose of vitamin sea, and that’s how we landed in Byron Bay. Place where I could be myself and my gypsy soul would dance to the melody of wild waves
Byron sunset will always be my favourite, specially from the main beach, if you are lucky you can spot local musician coming together to respect Mother Nature, and there you have your evening sorted in middle of bongo player and cold beer
Like me if you are big fan of martini, then Treehouse on belonging is the place to be. Another place that we really like was Miss margarita, they have the best Mexican food in town, we did two days in a row :) its was that good!
I was in Byron for good ten days and there was something to do everyday, from visiting art galleries, pottery workshop, walk to famous byron light house, (on a good day you can spot dolphins :O ) or the Byron farmers market, running every Thursday morning, perfect place to shop organic and free range local products.
Byron is known for hosting couple of big events like Byron blues festival, splendour on the grass, Byron writers festival throughout the year.
While I was in byron, Mardi Gras Nimbin festival was going on, man it was a rad experience, one shouldn’t miss it 🙂
I often say Byron beauty has bewitched me, If given opportunity I can literally move there. It’s just gorgeous!
As I was travelling from melbourne, catching flight to Ballina airport was the best way to reach Byron bay. There are shuttle buses from Gold Coast, Brisbane and Sydney to Byron. For more information check – http://www.byronbayshuttle.com.au
I am budget traveller, I often look for hostel to crash. My fav spot is Byron bay beach resort – (http://byronbeachresort.com.au/), it caters all sort of accomodation, from dorms to single rooms and the best thing is its just opposite to Belongil Beach
Renting a car is more economical, that way you can explore near by town like Lismore, Mullumbimby, nimbin etc
