Byron Bay

We enjoyed staying at the well located Clarkes Beach Holiday park as we could walk from the park up to  the Light house on Cape Byron and take in the magnificent views of Byron Bay. It also had a  covered camp kitchen with lovely views of the sea.There is limited parking, so it is easier to walk to the Lighthouse than drive. We had great Byron Bay coffee (Organic blend) at a café next door and are now looking to see if we can buy some beans ourselves. We had a very interesting tour of the Light house, which is still in operation, and walked back along the coastal walking trail, which had great views. The round trip, with coffee at the Light House, took us about 4 hours. We saw a whale calf near the Light House and several pods of dolphins near the beach. In the town we saw New Age shops, a Buddhist group marching and Hare Krishna group singing in the Park. We visited a Christian Church that reaches out to the Community.
