Wallpaper Wanderer: The Beaches of Byron Bay

It’s been a long time since we’ve had a Wallpaper Wanderer entry eh? The last one was by Zewl Pink from his trip to Paris, and now we have another inspiring entry from Oksana Simakina from Drink Tea and Travel – she was born in Ukraine but has since lived practically all around the world from Canada to China, and now she shares with us a photo from one of her favourite places near her current base in Brisbane, Australia:

Wallpaper Wanderer - Byron Bay Oksana
Look at those lovely colours!

Byron Bay, New South Wales, Australia

This is the main beach in Byron Bay, a small coastal town in New South Wales, in Australia. Located just 2 hours away from Brisbane, Byron Bay has a it’s one of my favourite places to get away to for a weekend. The laid back atmosphere with hippy vibes, great night life, and beautiful natural settings have drawn me here more than once!



I’ve been to various parts of Australia including Brisbane, but we didn’t have a lot of time there and I’ve never been to Byron Bay. This lovely beach picture is making me want to take a beach holiday soon…
