In the wee hours of morning, we set off travelled from one state to another to immerse in some sunrise splendour…
Yep, we travelled 170 km from Brisbane to Byron Bay, a beachside town located in the far-northeastern corner of the state of New South Wales to catch some sunrise beauty!
More specifically, we travelled to the Cape Byron Light House…
536 AM as we walked along Lighthouse Road…
We had to walk up the path to get to the lighthouse because the gate to the walking track (which leads to the lighthouse and lookout) is locked from sunset to 8 AM.
545 AM at the base of the lighthouse:
Selfie with the Cape Byron Light House, an icon for Byron Bay and is a must for any visitor to Byron Bay:
Believe it or not, it’s our first time catching sunrise together!
In fact, J doesn’t even remember catching a sunrise in her life! 😐

613 AM at the base of the lighthouse:
While admiring for the sunrise, there were some squeals from a group of people at a lookout below:
A kangaroo (or is it a wallaby) was spotted!
620 AM at the base of the lighthouse:

627 AM gif at the base of the lighthouse:
Can you spot any “animals” in the clouds as they get blown by the wind?? 😉
Sunrise aside, we also took in the charm of the majestic sea…
Looking forward to our upcoming dive trip! 😉
A more decent photo with the icon of Byron Bay…
That group of people taking a selfie with the Cape Byron Light House are the Brisbane buddies:
Another selfie! 😛
637 AM and the sun’s almost totally risen!
Another view of Cape Byron Light House:
As we left at 707 AM, we saw people surfing!
Here’s the map/signage at the “entrance” to the stretch of road that leads to Cape Byron Light House:
Indeed, “Praise the Lord from sunrise to sunset!” (Psalm 113 : 3)
May every sunset bring everyone hope and every sunset bring everyone peace… 🙂
P.S. Not sure where exactly to put this post except under ‘Travel’ and ‘Home (II) – Brissy’ because we’re “travelling” and only making this trip because we’re staying in Brisbane; not sure if tourists would actually go the distance to catch a sunrise! BUT of course, if you’re doing a road trip from Queensland to New South Wales (or vice versa), Byron Bay is a place you could stop by for a night or two. 😉
