Byron Bay Lighthouse + Three Blue Ducks at The Farm

Byron Bay is my favourite part about Australia! I love being close to the beach & that there are several little stalls all over. I've seen pictures of Byron Bay through IG & have always wanted to visit. When my brother mentioned that we will be visiting Byron Bay i was the most excited! 
We had breakfast at one of the cafes called "Twisted Sista" & it was so good!! So far all the cafes/restaurants we've been dining in Gold Coast & Adelaide did not disappoint at all! Love how fresh the ingredients are & everything taste so darn delicious! Oh &, i love the coffees here. Australia is known to brew one of the best coffees. Well, mainly Melbourne. But i do prefer drinking the coffee in Aus than in SG.

We drove up to the Byron Bay Lighthouse! It was beautiful up there! Saw several people walking up the mountain. It's a really long walk up tho. I was in awe of the scenery much more than the lighthouse itself. Lol. I love clear blue waters & beaches. It was extremely beautiful up there.

Opening Hours: Monday-Sunday: 7am-5.30pm

Chai Latte.
Apple Crumble.
I must admit that this is the BEST tasting Apple Crumble ever!!! It tasted very different from the usual Apple Crumble. There was coconut flakes in it & even the apple filling had a bit of a twist to it. Loved it.
Sunny side eggs on sourdough bread.
I ordered pancakes with roasted banana slices (: 
The pancakes were so fluffy!!!! Man i'm salivating as im typing this..

Byron Bay Lighthouse is absolutely stunning. I love how clear the water is! Plus, the scenery is amazing. I wish there was enough time to head down to the beach. I would have loved to walk along the beach. If it was summer, that'd be even better cause then i could sun tan & dip in the sea! Hehe. Despite the chilly weather there were several surfers out in the sea. 

Despite it being winter, people are still seen surfing. But it wasn't that cold though. I would totally head to the beach in my bikini too! But my brother said it would be too cold -.- I didn't even find it to be too cold. At least not in the Gold Coast.

I saw that green platform jutting out of all the trees with people standing on it. Figured it was some viewing platform. So we walked over to check it out. Turns out, it's actually a restricted area. Lol. But since there were people alr taking photos there, why not join em. & It was a nice view from up there.

Brother & i decided to do a headstand/handstand. Which was kinda scary cause the platform is actually slanting downwards. 

We then drove to a place called 'The Farm' which is near Byron Bay. Basically all these places are
within Byron Bay. The Farm was ranked as one of the top few restaurants to visit. It certainly did not let us down. There were farm animals roaming around & all. The place is huge. Nice place to have a long stroll. 
Their restaurant is called 'Three Blue Ducks'. The food is fresh as they practice a farm to table concept. Though a tad pricey but worth it.

Everything served was super fresh. My family & i enjoyed the meal thoroughly! After eating, or even before if the queue is long & you are waiting for your seats, you can walk around the farm.. Which is really huge! Check out the farm animals & scenery which is great for families to spend time together! Lots of photo taking opportunities! Byron Bay def stole a piece of my heart for i have fallen completely in love with this place! Hands down fav place in Australia (:
