Myself, Jon & Karen have travelled as far as Byron Bay at the time of writing. A few highlights have been Newcastle (not that one), which was a shit hole. A bit like a mining town that lost it's mines and didn't have anything else to fall back on. Having said that, I did have a very nice chicken schnitzel burger there.
We've also travelled through Coff's Harbour, which was a nice little harbour town which, without trying to sound like an estate agent, boasts some spectacular coastal views. Didn't have much more than that though.
Nimbin, I had high hopes for. If the stories were to be believed we were in for a drugs fuelled odyssey spanning space and time. What we got was a pub, and 85% of the shops that were there were shut. (Presumably because everyone was so baked).
As I mentioned before we're in Byron Bay, which from first impressions is brilliant.
My back hurts from all of the laying down on hard ground, (we're in a tent) but I wouldn't have it any other way, bring on Brisbane (and the camper van).....
