Travel Journal: Byron Bay

I recently made my way down to Byron Bay, it was the first time I have left Queensland so I had an amazing time! We avoided the highway as much as we could and headed south through many cute little towns.

The first stop we made was in Kingscliffe where I saw these awesome old VW’s!! There was a surfing event on at the time as well so we stayed to watch for a little while.

We stopped off at Cabarita beach and had kebabs at Cabarita Kebabs. Great little kebab shop and Cabarita beach was an awesome area!

We then ended up in a town called Wooyung and were driving along Wooyung Road heading South West from Pottsville when we saw a cute roadside stall. I don’t like trying new foods – as weird as that sounds – but I was feeling adventurous so I decided to try the dried fruit. I got some Dragon fruit roll-ups and a fruit salad mix and considering I don’t like any of these fruits normally I was very pleasantly surprised with how good it was!

And finally, we arrived at Byron bay!!!

We also stopped for Ice Cream at In The Pink Gelati and they had so many yummy flavours to choose from, I got Forrero Rocher and Belgian Chocolate!

We also went and had a look at Cape Byron Lighthouse but it was absolutely packed and we couldn’t find a park anywhere! It was also $8 to park anywhere near the lighthouse which was a bit steep, so we figured a drive by and the amazing view was good enough for us.

Fun fact: Cape Byron Lighthouse is the most easterly part of Australia and is the closest to New Zealand. 

Then as we were heading back towards the Gold Coast along the Tourist Drive between Murwillumbah and Nerang we spotted another cute roadside stall and stopped to get some lemons and banana muffins which were baked fresh that day and were A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

My trip to Byron was amazing and I will definitely be visiting again soon!
