Byron Bay: the most easterly point of Australia, is surprising child friendly

Some people go to the ends of the earth for their family. The G family actually did when we took a trip to Byron Bay during our Gold Coast adventure.

Byron Bay

Byron Bay is a well known celebrity magnet, attracting some of the biggest names in Hollywood to its sandy shores and ultimate surf. However the G family were on a mission.. to venture to the most easterly point in Australia.

The ascent from the town up the hill to Cape Byron Lighthouse is a tough slog and is not for the faint hearted. We chose to drive up and pay the $8 parking fee at the top.. with little kids, this is definitely money well spent.

The views from the top where absolutely sensational. I'm not sure if we attended on a special world dolphin championship surfing day or if its just a common occurrence, either way, we gasped in amazement watching pods and pods of dolphins all surfing in the waves. There where so many dolphins Miss 3 kept loosing count.. I did too if I'm honest.

A short yet steep path that would be unsuitable for prams and wheelchairs (due to the amount of stairs) led us to our destination.. the most easterly point in Australia. We did it. Getting back up was less fun but we managed it all the same. Though we did have to get Miss 3 with a well deserved ice cream from the cafe when we got back to the car park.
