For the rest of the time I had left in Australia we travelled south to the gold coast.
We stayed a night at the spit in Surfers Paradise and travelled south to Byron Bay with surf stops in Surfers Paradise, Burleigh Heads and Snapper Rocks. As we arrived in Byron Bay we realized it was not the best time to be there because it was schoolies week and Byron was flooded with teenagers. Nevertheless we found some nice bars with normal people. All in one I really liked Byron, it was a nice chilled out place with a huge diversity of people form old-hippies to yuppies.
After two days surfing Byron we headed back north to Noosa with surf stops in Kings Cliff, Duranbah, Snapper, Burleigh and Caloundra.
