Federation Square & Botanical Gardens

Whenever I didn’t know where to go (it rarely happened but it DID happen) there was always the Federation Square around the corner (next to the impressive, ancient Flinders Street Station) that is a really nice place to hang out as it provides all kinds of activities every day, special events from time to time and free Wi-Fi (yeah!). There is also a direct way to access the Royal Botanical Gardens. (Sorry, Skydeck I have to re-evaluate my opinion; these Gardens are probably the most beautiful thing I’ve seen in Melbourne. This time for real! I can’t really explain why, I just felt so comfortable there). Right at the Yamba River, there is the gorgeous Princess Walk connecting Fed Square and the Park. From there, you can walk down the beautiful riverside that is perfect for biking and jogging. Lots of places to relax there, making your heart feel at ease.

Yamba: Byron Bay’s Cooler Older Sibling

Yamba?? When six foreign twenty-something-year-olds take a road trip up the east coast of Australia, there are many spots you can expect to find on their list: Sydney, Byron Bay, Surfer’s Paradise, Airlie Beach, Cairns. These are the buzzword places; the places pictured on Qantas airline pamphlets and bartered off to you by student travel companies in neat little packages. They are stylish and established homes to World Heritage UNESCO sites, brimming with world-famous attractions and activities. I mean, it was practically our duty as young travellers to take pictures at Whitehaven Beach—one of the most photographed sites in Australia—snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, and walk barefoot up to the lighthouse at Byron Bay, right? I’m not saying all these places and experiences weren’t amazing, because they really were some of the most beautiful sites I’ve ever seen, but one of my most favourite places ended up actually being Yamba, a little fishing town located about an hour and a half’s drive south of Byron Bay. In fact, we all liked it so much we stopped there twice, once on the way up and once on the way back down.
