Brunswick Heads, Byron Bay and Lennox Heads NSW
Wednesday 4th August
It was another beautiful sunny day in NSW so we drove to the beaches. First stop was Brunswick Heads and the Marina.
We weren’t disappointed here the scenery was lovely. There was a sheltered secluded swimming hole when the little ones could safely swim.
You could look towards the west towards the heads. We walked out along the Groyne to view the water and the kayaks and swimmers. We lunched at a lovely little cafe called the Fish Bar and enjoyed fish & chips in the lovely fresh air. We checked out the Seafood for sale in the co-op and we will definitely come back for some fresh prawns and oysters and it is only 7klms away. We drove a bit further up the road to Byron Bay, and drove along the beach. The sand is so white and the crystal blue of the water in contrast is absolutely amazing.
The shopping area is reminiscence of our days in Bali, with the usual hats, sarongs, Board Shorts and bathers were displayed in abundance outside the shops, the many eateries etc. It would be nice to spend a few weeks here just chilling out. The beach was very popular with many tanned bodies enjoying the surf. Our next stop was Broken Heads Beach. Another lovely spot!
We didn’t spend a lot of time here but the beach was quite nice. We drove on to Lennox Heads.
This is very well populated with lovely houses and civilisation quite close to the beach. We drove out to Pat Morton Lookout which overlooks the whole of Lennox Heads.
A few surfers were braving the elements. I believe it is well known for its surfing.
Today we are having a rest day having the hair trimmed and wandering through the shops in Mullumbimby. Tomorrow we are planning to drive to Ballina, Lismore and Casino to check out our next stop with the car as we noticed some very low bridges when we were in Lismore on Tuesday. So we are trying to find other alternate routes to lead us into Casino. The bridges are about 3.8mts high and the bus is 4.2mts high so we could be in slight trouble if we went that way. PS: About the Helicopter. It is a little bit out of action at the moment as on the weekend we were flying it with the kids when it came crashing down. Result equals one broken Radar. Oops!!!
