Broken Head Nature Reserve

Last Friday, Lexis Byron Bay students went on a lovely clifftop bushwalk and picnic to Broken Head Nature Reserve, just south of Byron Bay.

We enjoyed an hour’s walk along the headland and had a pod of dolphins follow us the whole way around. Everyone had a great time watching the dolphins play amongst the waves before we climbed down the cliffs to the rugged south-facing beaches below the rocky outcrop and almost got blown back to Byron!

We trekked back to the picnic grounds at Broken Head and feasted on gourmet salad and ham wraps, corn chips, lamingtons and jelly snakes.

Afterwards we took a detour to Lake Ainsworth at Lennox Head, a stunning ti-tree lake  famous for the purple-brown colour of the water, stained by the sap of the ti-trees. Lake Ainsowrth is said to have healing properties and after swimming in its waters you feel as if you have had a bath in magical oils, with skin and hair soft and silky.
