After 2 days of theme parks, we took a break and drove to Byron Bay from Gold Coast. In under 2 hours we were there. A stroll around the walking track at Cape Byron Lighthouse is highly recommended. This is Mainland Australia's most easterly point. We were lucky to see some whales, unfortuanately my camera lenses are not powerful enough to take picutres of them.
This is where Matt would sit in silence for a very long time and ...
... came out smiling.
After lunch, the kids have fun at the beach. For those who are interested in arts, there is a Byron Bay Artist Trail which we didn't have time for.
