For our SS1617 Campaign 'ISLAND LUXE', we were initially going to shoot part of the campaign at Belongil Beach, but there had been flash floods the week prior, so we spontaneously moved to Broken Head Beach. After a fairly intense walk (I was 8 months pregnant with Will and was puffing louder than Thomas the Tank Engine), we found paradise on a pebble stone beach, Little Broken. With the moody skies & perfectly matched beach, we had struck jackpot once again.
Our top 3 favourite hangs on this trip:
1. Activity - The Farm At Byron Bay. Just a short drive out of Byron is The Farm and there was just so much we loved…the farm animals & playground for the kids, provincial style flower shop, café with the best donuts in the world (pregnancy craving satisfied), to the most incredible bathrooms I’ve ever seen. A must visit, even if you don’t have kids.
2. Eats - The Balcony. The food here is amazing and is also very kid friendly. Win/Win.
3. Visits – Island Luxe, Bangalow. Where rustic minimalism hits a new high, the perfect mix of interiors & clothing, Island Luxe’s vibe in Bangalow was a huge inspiration for us this season.
