Byron Bay is definitely a must-see when visiting Australia as it is an Aussie fave when it comes to holiday destinations. Festivals, chilled vibes, friendly people, beautiful scenery, tasty food, pristine beaches and more is what you will get when visiting this iconic town. A few months back I decided to take a road trip from Sydney to Bryon and see the amazing well known NSW coastline along the way. We stopped in Port Macquarie, Coffs Harbour, Yamba and lastly at macadamia castle (not made out of Macadamia’s hahaha!) – just outside of Byron Bay and did the same (sort of) on the drive back. Beautiful scenery, unimaginable stunning beaches and a tonne of wildlife(Koala’s, Roos, Dingos :O), are only a handful of things you will see along the way and with a killer playlist to keep you singing all the way there, 100’s of snacks so you don’t die and a camera for those special moments, you can do it too. Keep scrolling if you want to follow me on this incredible trip that I took a few months back. I hope you enjoy!
