When we booked our trip to the North Coast, we were in two minds. Should we play it safe and book our accommodation in Northern NSW. Or take the risk and book in the Gold Coast with the chance of COVID shutting the border.

The surf forecast looked good so we booked the Gold Coast and fortunately we were in luck. As we made our way north we formulated a plan to do a little borderhopping and visit Byron Bay if the weather went our way.


The glorious view of Snapper Rocks from Rainbow Bay lookout. 



As usual the family holiday was blended with photography locations, but I still managed to add some new images to my portfolio. 



Always room for one more on the Gold Coast.



We always enjoy the friendly vibe on the Gold Coast, both in and out of the water. As the weather was pretty much perfect all week, we decided to do a little border hopping down to Byron. The crowds and the parking are still a challenge, but Byron still manages to take the chilled vibe to a whole new level. 


Byron still busy despite our international border restrictions.

Fisherman's Lookout


The rolling hills of the Byron hinterland is an area I have not explored a lot, on this visit we decided to take an afternoon drive to Newrybar. This pretty little one street village has a few houses, shops, cafes and the award winning Harvest restaurant. As the sun slipped below the hills I was fortunate to drive by an old hinterland house that had seen better days. I couldn't help but wonder about the history and stories that this little weather-beaten house could tell.



Hinterland charm.
