Byron bay is the most easterly point of mainland Australia. It is a mecca for backpackers and tourists from all over the world. It is very hard to spot an Aussie accent amongst the South American,French, Eastern Europe and British voices relaxing at street side cafes and bars nestled along the seaside streets. Street art adorns most side streets, giving it an eclectic feel, a hippie vibe that is less noticeable in the southern beaches of Sydney.

It is also one of my favourite spots to visit in New South Wales. Take all your troubles and pack them away as you enter a different vibe in Byron. You get the impression that life is to be enjoyed and should be bohemian and chilled. Take an hour to browse the tiedyed colourful t shirts in the many boutiques, jostling for space with crystal shops and upmarket galleries. The smell of incense is everywhere, filling the mind and creating a wacky ambience, where long flowing dresses rule and bare feet are a part of the mood. Peace for all.
