Exploring Bangalow

I’ve been lucky enough to spend the 10 days living in Byron Bay, New South Wales. My family are over for a little holiday and we have an apartment here which is lovely! I’ve been to Byron a few times before but only for a couple of days at a time so it’s nice to have a nice amount of time here because not only is Byron Bay beautiful but there are lots of nice places around here to explore too!

One of those places is Bangalow which is a 15 minute bus ride from Byron Bay. The buses in Byron are super easy to use and run pretty frequently depending on where you’re going so it’s a great way to get around without having to hire a car.
Bangalow is a cute little town lined with cafes and little boutique shops. It’s a real little treat to visit. We walked about for the day, stopping for lunch at a cute little museum/tea rooms, where you sit outside on a deck, I have a wonderful vegan falafel dish and my first tumeric latte which, as pretty as it was, just wasn’t for me!

Inside this building was a really interesting antique shop which was great to look around.

Ooops! Being away from my dogs is hard! Alfie you made my day!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt was great to have a little walk around somewhere new and it’s nice to see places that aren’t in the guide books. More exploring please but no more Tumeric lattes!

Where else in Queensland shall I visit?! Any suggestions?

    Bangalow looks really lovely.
    I stayed in Alstonville once, which is not far there. It’s a small country town with most of the locals invested in macadamia farming.
    If you get the time, Noosa (further up the coast) is gorgeous. Eumindi markets are worth a visits if you stay in the area.
    Another firm favourite is Port Douglas but that is in Far North Queensland.
