Being by the Bay. Road trip day ten east coast australia
My bus arrived around midday into Byron Bay. I honestly didn't realise how small the town was but also so happy because after Brisbane I needed small towns again, walking from one end to the other is my idea of travel these days.
After arriving at my hostel I made my way down to the beach to meet up with some friends I met on Fraser Island. We hung out for the better part of the rest of the day before heading back to my hostel to get ready for dinner.
I decided to eat out, sticking to being vegan for the duration of the trip I've loved Poke Bowls, I got myself a juice and a bowl and just enjoyed the sunset. A little expensive but my priority is feeling good by eating vegan not my budget.
I went back home to get dressed to head out for some drinks in the evening. We got back into town to go out around 12am, if i'm being honest there isn't too many places to go out in Byron Bay. Going out in Byron Bay in my opinion will depend on who you're with rather than where you are. Either way we got home at 3:30am so it must have been good...
Byron Bay is full of buskers and we saw an amazing singer that went by the name of "Tones and I". She was amazing and we sat there for at least 45 minutes listening to her covers and songs.
After trolling Instagram this morning for some places to visit, I met up with my friend from Sydney and some girls I met on Fraser Island and we went to "The Farm" located about 5-10 minute drive outside to Byron Bay its a cute little country farm to spend a couple hours exploring with a picnic.
There isn't too much to see but it was nice to enjoy the country side having only seen beaches for the last two weeks - (not complaining though!) There was mean't to be gorgeous Sunflowers but unfortunately they had all died or needed some TLC so we just had a wonder around them nevertheless.
We headed back into town for lunch before a storm came over. After lunch we went to the weekend markets which were cute, but fairly small though. We had a bit more of a walk around before getting some food for dinner. I came back to my hostel just to chill and will start making dinner soon before meeting some more friends and have a sight seeing day tomorrow, so need some serious sleep!
Byron Bay is so far my second favourite place this whole trip, after Noosa of course. If you are thinking about going to Byron Bay make sure you make it happen!
