Now we’ve spent like a week in Byron Bay. Not exactly counting the days, just going with the flow here 😉 Anyway, it’s been such good times here at the easternmost part of Australia. Here’s a photo of Cape Byron with heaps of surfers lined up next to it.
The surf here has been pretty great. As the swell wraps around the cape it creates a point break over the sandy bottom. This makes for fairly long rides, and even though it can be crowded at this popular spot, the strong current automatically spread people out a bit, especially when the swell picks up a bit. Here are a couple of films from fun times out in the water 🙂
There’s also an old shipwreck close to the beach here, which is fun to climb on and jump off of. Here’s Eivind having a go at it 🙂
One accommodation I can highly recommend here in Byron is the Arts Factory. Great atmosphere at this hostel with heaps of activitites going on. I made a bracelet from a plant when I was there, played trivia, enjoyed live music from some of the other guests, and went on a bushwalk with quite a character who thought us a bit about the nature around us. Here he’s going at it, making a basket from a leaf.
And here are just a few of more photos of the Arts Factory. If you’re ever in Byron, check it out! 🙂
