Last weekend, Rhett and I spent a spontaneous night in the bohemian epicentre of Northern-NSW, Byron Bay. So for today’s post, I thought I’d share with you guys a suite of photos from our two days away whilst showcasing some of the beautiful sites that Byron Bay is so well-known for.
Location 1: Byron Bay Lighthouse, Byron Bay
When visiting Byron Bay, you simply cannot go without making a bee-line straight to the iconic Byron Bay Lighthouse. Positioned on top of a scenic grassy headland, this iconic landmark also marks the most easterly point within all of Australia. So when Rhett and I waddled up the summit at 5:30 am, bleary-eyed and blistering with cold, we were expectedly joined by hordes and hordes of tourists, all looking to catch that mornings sunrise. And I’m not entirely sure how, but despite the crowds, Rhett and I somehow managed to snap a few, albeit cliché, photos of the beautiful Byron Bay lighthouse with minimal photo-bombing. Which, in my opinion, was a job bloody well done!
Location 2: Minyon Falls, Nightcap National Park
The majority of you guys would have seen this epic location from my post earlier this week. But for all who have not, Minyon Falls is a 100-metre plunge waterfall located inconspicuously within the heart of Nightcap National Park, just 45-minutes west of Byron Bay. And long-story-short, this waterfall was as massive as it was breathtaking and downright overwhelming. An absolute must-see force of nature. The walking track itself made for a visually spectacular hike that was just the right balance of rock scrambling, crawling under fallen tree branches and leisurely strolls through well-defined paths. And needless to say, Rhett and I have already made plans to return to Minyon with our friends and family in tow.
Location 3: Whites Beach, Byron Bay
Whites Beach is a beautiful, secluded, and magical place that is also, quite frankly, a pain-in-the-ass to get to. Not only did Rhett and I find ourselves unexpectedly bouncing our low-profile car along a beaten, dirt road within an overgrown rainforest but we also did a fair bit of scrambling, and bush-bashing, and slipping in the mud. But with all that being said, and having just recovered from a bruised coccyx, I can honestly say that once we reached White’s Beach, Rhett and I were well re-paid for our efforts. And well, the photos simply speak for themselves!
Location 4: Killen Falls, Titenbar
Killen Falls, a 10-metre waterfall located in the sleepy suburb of Titenbar, just 20-minutes out of Byron Bay was the last pit-stop that Rhett and I made for the weekend. And what a gorgeous way to top-off our mini getaway – we could not have been more pleasantly surprised! Because not only was this little gemstone absolutely flowing from the previous weeks-worth of rain but the natural formation and understated beauty amidst a relative population-dense suburb was nothing short of impressive. I am definitely keen to come back here with a pretty dress in hand!
That just about sums up our wonderful weekend in Byron Bay. And as always, I hope you guys enjoyed coming along with us and having a sneaky little look around. But before you lovelies all waddle away, I just wanted to do a quick shoutout to Natasha from ValueSimplicity, Hazel from MrsS.LDN, Angela from LifeOfAngela, Victoria from Victorialise, Sarah from VintageTeaRose, MyMindlessDrivel and StripSearchLA for commenting on this post – you wonderful humans make me laugh. Because I’m not sure if any of you guys noticed, but this mornings version of this post was a draft that I had mistakenly hit publish on and hence why there were no texts or formatting. But regardless, you lovely angels still liked, and commented and supported! LOL. And I honestly cannot express, just how much I adore you all. Thank you. ❥❥❥
Until next time, stay safe my little wombats.
Love Linda, xo
