The Northern Rivers region of New South Wales has long been a favourite getaway for big city dwellers. Thanks to its charm and mild climate, it's rapidly growing into a business centre for creatives, entrepreneurs and restauranteurs alike. The roads may be busier and the outfits always dapper, but the gentle pace of life is still one of its biggest assets. Here's to a weekend escape where the waves are wintery wild, the rolling hills rich green and the sun still warm.
My tops tips for when you're in the area:
Breakfast: Table View, Brunswick Heads (30 Mullumbimbi street)
Coffee: The Top shop, Byron Bay (65 Carlyle Street)
Lunch: The Farm, Byron Bay (11 Ewingsdale Rd, Ewingsdale)
Stroll with a side of shopping: Bangalow
Beach: Wategos, Byron Bay
Start the day with the sun and surf
Take me down long country lanes
Then let's rest the night in a sweet country cabin
We stayed in a sweet little airbnb just outside of Mullumbimby. You can find all of the info here.
