Ballina: beach, bikes, beauty

Partner and I headed off on an early weekend to visit friends in Ballina, a pretty seaside town in New South Wales. We camped near Shaw’s Bay at a terrific resort-style caravan park and cycled on the levy to the pub for dinner. A wild wind was blowing but our trusty tent held up well.

On our cycle next day, we visited an 1866 lighthouse.

And looked down on Lighthouse beach:

On the breakwater, we looked across to another artificial sea wall of striking appearance.


“Tombstone” point?
