Everybody loves Byron Bay. Don't they? It was recommended by our friends and family, and the guidebook. We decided to skip a few towns on the way, mostly due to the brisk weather down south. Leaving Taree at 21.30 on the train after a few hours on the coach from Tea Gardens, near Port Stephens, the journey took all night. We alighted at 'Casino' at 04:10 for a subsequent coach journey to Byron Bay, finally arriving approx 06:15 in the rain. Finding a good early morning cafe, especially with free wifi, was very fortunate and we settled in to plan our stay.
