Andy and Juanita's fur kid was keen to join us for the trip south and it was only with the persuasion of a pig's ear that we managed to convince her to stay behind.
Following the coast we headed south passing through Surfer's Paradise, Burleigh, Coolongatta and across the border, eventually arriving in Byron Bay at lunchtime.
We decided the $7 entry fee to access the lighthouse and the most eastern point was actually quite a bit cheaper than what it cost us to reach the western and northern points.
Making our way out to the viewing platform we ticked off another cardinal point on our lap. Only the southern to go now.
After a photo we quickly made our way into town to restock before getting out. Byron Bay is way to busy and cool for us!
Broken Head had been recommended as a nice seaside camp and we were not disappointed. Our efficiency in setting up camp was highlighted by the couple next to us that took over two hours to set up their 3 man dome tent. To their credit there was no yelling and in the end they got there. Bryce read magazines and Jaks had a nanna nap.
Being back in the land of daylight savings meant we could eat a bit later and it still be daylight. Sharing the camp kitchen with about 20 teenage boys on a school trip made for kitchen entertainment. Jaks was able to teach them how to cook mince and the finer points of Trangia use.
During our romantic after dinner walk along the beach it decided to rain so we returned to camp, had a quick shower and retired to the tent for the night.
