It was an early start to catch the sunrise at the Cape Byron lighthouse. This is the first place the sun graces the shore in Australia a spectacular sight worth getting out of bed for!
After we cooked pancakes down at Wategos beach and assessed the surf.
It was Gemma’s first time surfing and although the conditions weren’t ideal for learning she still bravely conquered some waves.
We enjoyed the sunset at the Pass in the afternoon.
After jamming on the beach and a few cock + bulls we headed out to town.
We witnessed an amazing band at the Great Northern Hotel that night.
The next morning ,we said farewell to our Swedish friends. They had an amazing time being a part of the experience and we were sure glad to meet them and share the experience, it was a sad goodbye. Enjoy your time in Australia swedes and hope to see you again!
An old lady trying to sell you hash cookies, witnessing very casual drug deals going down in alley ways, Batista’s pulling cones while making our coffees are all thing you could expect in a place like Nimbin. But, we had a different trip.. We Camped out the night at Nimbin show grounds.
In the morning the guys were keen to head into town, we scouted for a parking spot and in the process stumbled upon the Nimbin skate park, we spontaneously decided to shred some crete. It was fun skating with our swedish friends.
After an intense session, we worked up quite a sweat. A local told us that we could cool off in the community pool right next to the skate park, even better it was free!
After having a wander in town and some lunch we decided to hit the road again. A local tipped us off about a local swimming hole with a tree swing we were sold and decided to try our luck and discover it for ourselves.
Well, If we weren’t spontaneous travellers we probably would have had expectations and this definitely exceeded it tenfold. You could imagine how we felt not having any to begin with..Pummmmmped!
Woah! This setup was crazy, 20 mtr high jungle swing into a big open swimming hole.
This was the highlight for the Swedes during their trip.
There was a small cascade and a natural diving board in the form of a dead log extending out from the rock, a perfect platform for backflips.
I definitely felt like we had the all round Nimbin experience and you can see why the locals love and proud of where they live, it definitely is a very unique and special place unlike any other.
