Byron Bay Lighthouse

Our photo of the week this week comes from Byron Bay on the east coast of Australia.

The town of Byron Bay was a little hectic with backpackers so we decided on a walk out to the lighthouse which we had been told was the most easterly point in Australia.

Taking the coastal road it took us around an hour to reach the lighthouse where we got to look out over the Pacific Ocean. Between June and November it's possible to spot humpback whales as they migrate north from the feeding grounds of Antarctica to the warm breeding ground waters around the Great Barrier Reef.

We took this photo on our way back down into Byron Bay having browsed around the tiny insides of the lighthouse.

Have you been to Byron Bay? Did you make the walk up to the lighthouse?
