So near and yet so far! Ballina to Brunswick Heads

Coolangatta is only a day's ride away but, because of the Cooly Rocks festival there this Queens Birthday weekend, all accommodation has been taken.

We're having to "cool our heels" for 4 days until Monday. We'll spend 2 days at Brunswick Heads and 2 at Kingscliffe. The rest will probably do us good after 20 consecutive days cycling.

After battling a couple of decent hills getting out of Ballina this morning, we had a lovely flat ride along the Coast Road to Byron Bay.

It's a very popular beach town. It was packed with visitors including bus loads of backpackers and too commercial for our liking. We decided to continue on to sleepy, pretty Brunswick Heads, where the Brunswick River meets the sea. We'll stay here for 2 nights.

Did 46kms today.
