Hallelujah the week is almost over! Time to turn our thoughts to weekend getaways. One of my favourite spots to runaway to for a couple of days is Byron Bay on the New South Wales North Coast just a few hours drive from me. Cool, stylish and laid-back this beach resort town with an eco conscious heart is home to a new chic boutique hotel, The Bower Byron Bay. Comprising 14 suites, a barn, a cottage and a family house it’s the perfect place to stay in casual luxury. Love the minimalist vibe with its monochrome palette and lush greenery and it’s just minutes from the beach and Byron’s fabulous cafes and shopping.
