Set off for Byron Bay on 7th January from Sydney, eventually after a 14 hour bus ride we made it to Byron. Arrived late on so just had a wander through town and found where the beach was (all the important stuff!). Our only full day we decided to spend on the beach but there was a huge downour as we got outside so had to wait for a bit to get on there. Spent a few hours lazing on the beach and even felt a couple of light showers while we were there.....these blogs might a get boring on the rain subject as we seem to have seen it most days on our way up the cost so far!!! In the evening ended up going to a bar/nighclub called La La Land and the name really suited the place. Seemed to be full of strange people who were dancing even more strange.
On the day we left we did a day trip to a little town called Nimbin about an hour and a half away from Byron. Nimbin is a cool, little hippie town which is very laid back to say the least!! Had a wander around the town, went to a cafe, looked in the local museum (about 3 rooms in a house!), got some lunch and then it was time to head back. When we got back had a couple of hours in Byron before our bus to Surfers Paradise...
