Down to the Coast

After exploring the Granite Belt, we backtracked to Tenterfield, and then down the Bruxner Highway towards the Far North Coast. The first hour or two were doozies, with the road twisting this way and that down the plateau. This is one of the straighter bits.

After the village of Drake, the road straightened a little bit as it wound its way down the foothills, and the temperature was at least 5C warmer than the tablelands. Past Mallanganee, we saw the icon of the region, Mount Warning, on the horizon.

We travelled through the Northern Rivers towns of Casino, Lismore, and Bangalow, to the tourist mecca beach town of Byron Bay. Luckily, we had this little oasis to ourselves.
