Place 47 – Day 2: Byron Bay – Lighthouse Walk & Swimming

We got up early to go and do the lighthouse walk. The weather forecast said it was going to thunderstorm from 11:00 so we were expecting rain so we left whilst it was still nice.

Low and behold, the weather stayed lovely for most of the day! It was hot and that didn’t help with the 2.2km walk up to the lighthouse.

We had to go up a lot if steps and through some forest areas but the views were incredible!

We got to a stopping point which was the most easterly point of Australian mainland, which was a cool thing!

We went to the lighthouse just up from that point and it was beautiful! Amazing views and the lighthouse looked awesome.

We got back down to the bottom and went to the house to get changed to swimming gear as we didn’t think the weather would be as good as it was!

We got to the beach and headed right for the water. We got battered by the crazy big waves but it was great fun.

We then got our and dried off then we proceeded back to the house where we got our things to head out. Our host was kind enough to drive us to the bus stop. 

We got to the stop and were able to leave our bags with the bus company who were across the road. 

We left there and went for a coffee to kill the time. Kim had a mocha and Curtis had a cappuccino. They were delightful!

We got to the bus stop and boarded the bus for what we thought was a 2 hour journey. Because of time difference, it was actually 3 hours but this made no difference for us really.

We got to Brisbane and the coach stopped at the transit centre and we ordered an uber. The first driver parked across the road and we have a lot of large bags… He refused to come to us so he canceled and we had to get another.

The second guy turned up and was nice so we got a lift to our apartment. 

The guy had left the key outside and we were hoping it wasn’t stolen! Luckily, the key was there and we eventually figured out how to get in.

We dropped out stuff off and headed nextdoor to the supermarket to get some dinner items. We had some pasta, meat and mushrooms… Something quick and easy as we were so hungry!

We have no plans tomorrow so we will wake up whenever and just chill out.
