Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Brunswick Heads 6 June 2013

Left an overcast Maclean in the morning and set off for Byron Bay. We don't normally stop there, but Peter wanted to talk to some of the organisers about the festival sites around Bryon, as he is attempting to establish a new festival venue for the Illawarra. It is funny that Bryon is now in danger of being 'overloved' for the very reasons that attracted people to visit it in the first place. When we first came here many years ago, it was (like plenty of other little towns) a charming and old-fashioned fishing/surfing village that had a great beach. Now it is full of overpriced 'alternate' boutiques and back-packers pretending to be hippies for a day. We much preferred Brunswick Heads, about 15Km up the road. It seems to have kept a charm that is missing from Bryon and is surrounded by a magnificent river and natural bush. We went for a walk to the beach around dusk and came across an echidna burrowing for food, as well as some tailor jumping against the strong tide, while pelicans kept a lazy eye on them. The weather is getting warm now and combined with the thick tropical vegetation is giving us a real holiday feeling!!
