... visits Byron Bay

It's been nearly 10 years since I last had a holiday in Byron Bay and it definitely won't be another 10 before I go back.  I was on a girl's long weekend and it was foodie, drinks and awesome service heaven.  We ate, we drank, we walked, we talked, we shopped, we drank, we talked, we walked, we ate, we shopped - you get the idea!

We arrived on Friday evening and went straight to our gorgeous accommodation at The Byron Luxury Beachhouses. The houses are enormous, are superbly furnished and are in a great location, being just 10mins walk away from downtown Byron.  It even had a wine fridge in the kitchen.  Now that's my kind of holiday house!

Dinner was at St Elmo which had come highly recommended from various friends (and blogs!). It didn't disappoint and the soft shell crab sliders were the highlight.

Espresso martinis, cosmopolitans with a twist and fab wines were consumed with gusto.


Brunch was divine homemade beans, poached egg on toast and awesome coffee at Dip Cafe.

A spot of shopping and then a quick (!?) drink at the Byron Bay Hotel - it was rude not to when a prime, front row table was beckoning. There were also whales to lookout for.


Home via Belongil Beach...

Then drinks and share plates at Italian at the Pacific...

The Botanist Cocktail

Chilli and Coconut Margarita - absolutely delicious!

I might have bought a few things from the Bangalow Markets

Then a late lunch... that nearly turned into dinner!

I'm starting to plot the next girl's weekend away... any suggestions?
