Reflections on Byron

Byron was epic. Don’t get me wrong. But it’s nice to get the real experience and get some balance.

Byron Markets

Well, that last day came. I checked out and went into town to drop off my bag for the day. For a small fee you can leave your bag with the Tourist Info Centre for the day.

My Last Full Day in Byron Bay

Having spent one whole day in town, and one whole day literally just walking beaches, I thought I’d take a day to just lounge.

Oh The People You’ll Meet

The cool thing about travelling solo is, ironically, the people you’ll meet.

Looking for a Corkscrew

Having experienced the town and the very pricey food – seriously though, I had been warned Australia was expensive, but man oh man! – I bought some wine and some groceries and headed for a slow night in.

Byron Bay: Beach Walk and Lighthouse

My AirBnb was about thirty minutes walk outside of town. It’s such a tragedy when you have to walk on the beach in the morning. Tough gig, you know?

Arrival: Byron Bay

After Alice Springs, I flew to Brisbane and stayed overnight with Erin’s cousin and her family. They are adorable! Two kids full of spunk and wit, and the cuddliest puppy ever. After the fantastic joy of a home cooked meal and laundry, I took the bus in the morning down to Byron Bay.

Alice Springs

Well, it was time to  end the outback adventure.

King’s Canyon Rim Walk and Pushing Your Limits

The final hike of the tour was here. Up early and up 200 metres to the top of the mountain.  Then around the rim of the canyon and back down. That was the trek.

Kata Tjuta Gorge Walk

Ironically, I got to sleep in to 5:30am that morning!  I know, that was sleeping in by that point in the trip.
