Today’s location… the beautiful and most easterly point of Australia, Byron Bay!
We landed nice and early at Ballina airport and picked up a white little nissan beep beep to get us around for the day. On our way to Byron we stopped in beautiful Bangalow – a lovely village consisting of one adorable street full of independent boutiques, cute cafe’s and juice bars that could fit into any high-end metropolitan shopping strip. That’s where we found the gorgeous new stockist ‘Our Corner store’. An absolutely stunning and creative concept/homeware store, full of awesome international brands set in a hundred year old timber shop converted into this cool store!

After we finished strolling around Bangalow visiting all the cute boutiques, it was time to go say hello to Byron. We both had forgotten how beautiful the drive there is. The winding road leading through the rolling green hills and palm tree plantations with the ocean as the backdrop is just jaw-dropping.
Byron was as welcoming as alway, with everyone being in holiday mode, walking around barefoot in colourful beachwear. Love the relaxing vibe. We strolled all around town to see all the shops we had as prospects before having lunch at the gorgeous ‘Bay Leaf’ cafe to discuss which stores would suit WANDERLUST best. Amazing salads btw! They have a green brekkie dish that is to die for!
Then we went back into our favourite stores to introduce the book. We can’t really say where we will be stocked yet but we are very happy with the outcome.
Ended the day celebrating with a coconut and raw food treat next to the gorgeous AHOY trader shop. Mint choc slice was to die for! Byron never fails to deliver. Sad we didn’t have time for a dip-had brought the bikinis in the business bag 🙂 Only another reason to be back very soon!
