Ballina & Byron Bay

Screen Shot 2018-05-02 at 10.06.23 am

Out of Stanthorpe and off to the coast dreaming of sunshine and sea swims. Instead we took an evening walk out along the breakwater to be sprayed with wild surf, and witnessed the heaviest rain we’d seen in years!

This is actually the moon rising over the lake at about 5:45pm… weird. The Reflections campground at the bottom of the hill had super clean amenities and liked dogs and we’re  very friendly, gave us two sites for price of one. Quick walk to a beach and the end of the breakwater from there.

We braved a drenching and stood under the giant prawn! Giant things… Australia, you and your giant things.

We thought we might come back to Ballina one day when she was a bit dryer and headed up the coast to Byron Bay.

Prices are steep along the coast and they’re pretty heavy on free campers so Suffolk Park was where we ended up, at the Suffolk Park Beachfront where they like dogs, they also gave us a free park for the trailer. There’s a beach entrance at the caravan park but another further up the street for a beach where dogs can run wild.

From there it’s only 6kms into Byron Bay so we got the motorbike out for a bit of sightseeing:

People are living mighty fine in old Byron Bay.

I get the feeling Basil enjoys sightseeing.

  1. Wow, love the scenery even if the weather is iffy! You gotta love the fact you can just up and go to these places, and what I wouldn’t give for a swim in the ocean. Sigh!
