When we came to Byron Bay four days ago, we weren’t sure what to expect. Prices are quite high, especially for accommodation, but the town is colourful and alive, I found it a real joy just to stroll down the streets. There are lots of international back packers around, a few buskers, lots of young families and some grey nomads. The beaches are beautiful, the water amazingly blue and crystal clear, the best we have seen so far and glorious to swim in. Our caravan park on Clarkes Beach was very pleasant. A few too many bush turkeys though. One young guy was yelling at them because they had just eaten all his bananas.
