Get away from the daily grind with a weekend in gorgeous Byron Bay.
It may be a whole other state away, but depending on where in Brisbane you live, Byron is a drive of only 150-200 kilometres.
Blessed with beautiful beaches and exquisite coastline, you'll love the swimming, surfing, kayaking and diving. Or if staying dry is more your thing, there's no shortage of strolling and sunbaking opportunities to help you unwind.
One of the highlights of any visit is Cape Byron. The most (accessible) easterly point in Australia, people come here to admire the lighthouse and look down on the ocean almost 100 metres below, where whales and dolphins can sometimes be spotted.
I was on my way to Byron Bay from hearing all the rumours of how wonderful it is and I really wanted to find out for myself and take some picutres, tan and the rest. Somehow, we missed the exit and we did not know where we were going because we were driving for much too long so I thought we would end up in Sydney. Happens that we aer so close to Byron Bay that we did not know that we went past the exit and ended up in Hastings Point, which was a nice way to go anyway.
