After Byron Bay, we went on a one day tour to Nimbin which is a very alternative hippie sort of town but quite a bit of fun to visit. The little street was full of hippie culture and little independant herbal shops full of everything and anything... the little town did also inculde a fe slightly stranger people aswell.On the way back, we stopped off at a few viewpoints on the way and a waterfall that I jumped off- check the picture out for my Jesus impression!!

This time I met Toadie and Boyd (who are n...
Unfortuantly my tour to the Blue Mountains, just outside Sydney was a bit of a disaster. After days of wall to wall sunshine, I was greated by a very cloudy and drizzly day... by the time my tour reached the mountains it was very very foggy and could literally see nothing of the mountains at all other than a white sheet of fog. A shame as they are ment to be spectacular and normally well worth the effort.The tour group I was with wasn't the best either- my in...
