Three Days in Byron Bay.

Four weeks into the Spring Semester I made yet another excuse to avoid studying and found myself boarding a flight to Byron Bay. I excused this midweek vacation on my company, Mark, who was in Sydney visiting me from Glasgow. Prior to our departure, Mark was told of Byron’s artistic fusion, scenic headland walks and iconic beaches. I strategically left out the list of designer boutiques I had planned to visit. Eager to save (or rather to allocate funds to new Spell & The Gypsy threads), we opted for hostel accommodation. The Byron Bay Beach Hostel on Lawson Street was perfectly located to optimise our short stay and, being so recently opened, had the feel of a hostel whilst providing the amenities and cleanliness of accommodation above it’s price. Whilst visiting during the off season did mean that certain activities were not operational (Dolphin Kayaking was one I’m sure Mark is still bitter over), Byron itself was occupied enough to experience its bohemian charm. Each time I find myself in Byron I experience something uniquely different and I’m certain this is why many young creatives make more permanent pilgrimages here. I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t considered it myself, but alas, running from the semester does not make the degree itself disappear and I’ll be tanning at UTS Law School for now at least.
