Byron Bay Whale spotting: Today’s walk will commence from the car park opposite James Cook Apartments on the Lighthouse Road. This is an easy walk on good pathways for the most. Being right on the coast the temperature should not affect us, being accustomed to being 10° cooler up the mountains so must rush this through before the real heat of summer descends upon us all.

The views on this walk are some of the best along the coast, some would say spectacular.

Please arrange car pooling early as this is another opportunity to share the transport costs and make the most of limited parking.

Medical emergency: Please carry some first aid with you on every walk. As a minimum it should be a good 100m strong crape bandage. In chemists from $10-12), elastoplasts, medical tape, plus anything you consider an essential. Accidents can a DO happen on our walks, don’t think it won’t be me and don’t expect others to be carrying your emergency supplies if you do have a mishap. A strong bandage to support a badly twisted/sprained ankle will get you home safely or a broken one back in less pain and agony. Remember we are responsible for our own self and that includes emergency procedures.
