Byron Bay was the first town we came to that has some life after 6 pm . We have been completely baffled up to date as to where everybody goes as most towns we have passed through are like ghost towns in the evening . Filled with restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques and miles and miles of stunning beaches it is easy to see why so many people come here . We met the Gordons in our camp and spent some fun times together. I even managed to have a few surf lessons with Axel , we had just as much fun getting battered by the surf as we did trying to stand up on the board . Halloween is not really celebrated in Oz like it is at home but we did find a pumpkin and had a treat party in our camper , much to the kids delight .
