the first people i ran into were three buskers from ireland offering me some ice cream. a good start. and after a long time without any places in the worldtourguide, byron bay is home of the rails/ railway friendly bar, the recommendation from dorit.
there is live music on every night. mostly folk, blues and roots rock music. a very australian experience and a timeless one which seems to be untouched by the change of time that swept over byron bay in the last years and decades.
after the music ended we were wandering through the streets looking for more. which we found with team ireland which i met on my first day here.
really good boys and full-time, whole-hearted buskers. we played until the last pub closed, for the people on their way home and on until we had the streets all to ourselves. a good night!!
