and that place would be none other than Byron Bay...a little surfer town where everything is super chill and relaxed.
On the weekend of the 20th-22nd of July, I took a trip to the little town of Byron in New South Whales with a group of other international students from Griffith Uni. The trip was run by a group called Extreme Adventures, who run multiple tours through Australia and New Zealand. Our 'chaperones' for the weekend were Leigh and Dan and they were a bunch of really great guys. Overall, the trip was an unforgettable experience that I'm glad to have taken part of. Just like my orientation week in Cairns, a lot of things were cram packed into a few days and it would get a bit lengthy to explain everything in text....so what I'm going to do is post a list of everything we did, followed by photos. If you want more detailed descriptions of the various events, shoot me an email or drop a comment in the box below.
The list of events:
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
Cape Byron Lighthouse Hike
BBQ at the hostel
WAS SUPPOSED TO GO SEA KAYAKING AND SCUBA DIVING (got cancelled due to weather)
Time for pictures!!! (full album here: Byron Photos)
Ok, so I've been trying to upload more pictures from my trip to Byron in this post, but for some reason it's not letting me. I can edit everything else on my blog but I can't get the uploading of files to work. For now just follow the link to my full album on facebook if you'd like to see more of Byron (which I encourage because there are some pretty sweet photos from my hike to the most eastern point of Oz!)
