    Cape Byron Marine Park

    April 22, 2017 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    Had a change in climate today as we descended down to the coast through lush farmland and pasture. Good to put the shorts and tee-shirts back on! Stopped at the recently flooded Lismore (thanks to Cyclone Debbie) and saved a tree frog from being eaten by birds. We had never heard a frog cry out before and once we chased the birds away we relocated it back to the undergrowth of a tree: Karma plus one! Once we were fuelled by ice cream we drove up the coast from Ballina, stopping at beaches along the way and drying out the tent (from the dew that soaks it every night). We enjoyed a Turkish picnic over looking surfers near Lennox Head before spending time at Byron Bay. Byron has a busy vibe, perhaps more urban than we expected. It does have a certain traveller feel and buzz with a large sandy beach and safer looking surf. Spending the night at a camp ground at Mullumbimby Rugby Club where we have been re-acquainted with mosquitos!Read more
