Weekly stills - the "geez Byron Bay is further away than I thought, but totally worth the drive" edition

We love nothing more than a road trip in this family, and when my husband suggested a trip up to Byron Bay I had accommodation booked in a jiffy, before he could change his mind.  We stayed five minutes out of Byron Bay proper, at Suffolk Park.  It was just delightful, away from the manic busyness of Byron, but still with some great facilities, including beachfront accommodation, a couple of restaurants that were super family friendly, and most importantly for me, great coffee.  I get cranky if my coffee routine gets upset, just ask my family. 

Obviously we spent a lot of time on the beautiful beaches of Byron Bay, but also spent a day exploring the hinterland around the area.  Bangalow is a small town around 15 minutes from Byron and is just the most lovely little place to visit with cute shops, great cafes and a lovely streetscape.  We would love to return there and maybe stay in one of the farm stays in the area.  It would be a nice alternative to the usual beach style accommodation we usually go for.

1. Heading down to Tallows Beach
2. Nice place for a sit
3 & 4.  Early morning walk
5. Surfer's highway
6 & 7. Old wares in Bangalow
