Byron is considered Heaven on Earth and it attracts the free spirits of the world (hippies! hehe). Many people live out of their custom made vans which are decked out with a mattress in the back, a mini kitchen and places to store all their surf gear and boards. To be honest the life style is very enticing worrying about nothing but travelling up and down the coast hunting that perfect wave, the green room. I lived in a coastal town for 7 years, the Illawarra 90 minutes south of Sydney, and I dearly miss the beach lifestyle of swimming, surfing, sun-baking, fishing and boating (just anything to do with the water).

I came out at night to get this shot of the iconic land formation at Byron Bay… You can go up the staircase and admire the coast line in both directions for kilometres, it’s an amazing view up there. You can also just watch the surfing 🙂 on the wave “the pass”.
