Splendour Weekend Madness!

Welcome to the Weekend Blog!

It will be extremely busy around town this weekend as thousands descend on Byron Bay for the annual Splendour in the Grass Festival. Bands include Blur and Florence and the Machine and teacher Marie is already there as I write this. If you check http://www.gumtree.com.au and the noticeboards round town, you might be able to pick up some cheap last minute tickets.


We can expect some rain this afternoon, with a high of around 18 degrees. Tomorrow (Saturday) looks better with some sunshine and 21 and Sunday is currently forecasted as cloudy and 22. Night time temperatures are mild at 13-14 degrees. Great for campers.
