Byron Bay & Nimbin

Byron Bay was our next stop. It's a really cool little town, the complete opposite to Surfers Paradise. It's beside a great beach and there's lots of people there, it's full of hippy types and alternative shops.

We stayed here for 4 nights because it was so relaxing. Met lots of fun people including a group of crazy Aussie guys who we're staying at our campsite and ended up at a bonfire on the beach with them and a heap of other people we'd never seen before. Also met up with the Martina, Mariella & a few others from the Whitsundays.

We went to the lighthouse to watch the sunset but we're too late & it was nearly dark by the time we got there but still really nice! We also spent some time at Watego's surf beach which was so much fun on our body boards.

We spent a day at Nimbin which is a crazy little town a couple of hours away from Byron. Very 'alternative'! Loads of people there still think it's the 70's!, very funny to see the way they dressed with old men still sporting dreadlocks and flares... here's a photo from inside Nimbin Museum might give you an idea of what the town was like if this is there museum!

Didn't want to leave Byron but time is ticking on & we need to get to Sydney...
