A weekend in Byron Bay

Recently, I had the pleasure of celebrating the upcoming nuptials of a girlfriend through the age-old tradition of a Hen's Party: twelve girls and one glorious weekend in beautiful Byron Bay. 

As another summer has quietly slipped by, a weekend at the beach with some of my nearest and dearest girlfriends was a timely reminder to Always Remain Playful. 

Sometimes I find it so easy to get caught up in the daily stress of work and life; a weekend full of good food, great wine, silly dancing, lazing on beaches and many, many laughs can be the best way to unwind.

Planning a girls trip to Byron Bay? Here are a few recommendations: 

Dinner
Check out Treehouse on Belongil Beach. With a massive verandah, cosy couches and big tables, this is the perfect venue for a big group of friends to enjoy a casual dinner.

Catered lunch
To take advantage of the stunning location of our house at beautiful Watego's Beach, (and to be able to enjoy a leisurely lunch interspersed with games and flower crown assembling) the bridesmaids organised a catered lunch at the house. This meant there was more time for everyone to relax and enjoy the occasion - and the food was delicious! 100 Mile Table provided a gourmet feast of moroccan style chicken, slow cooked lamb, duck fat potatoes and a green salad. For dessert, we had platters of chocolate brownies, turkish delight and raspberry-dusted meringues to nibble on mid-flower crown prep! 

Dancing
No girls trip to Byron Bay is complete without some dancing on tables at Cheeky Monkey's! With great tunes and a relaxed dresscode, be prepared to let your hair down as you dance the night away. 

Brunch
Sunday brunch sessions are essential (pre or post beach time!) One of our favourite go-to brunch places in Byron Bay is Dip Cafe. With great coffee and an array of mouth-watering sweet and savoury options on the breakfast menu, there's something for everyone at this great little spot. 

Walks
Did you pack your #activewear? The popular lighthouse walk is a fabulous walking trail with breathtaking views.
