Day 9 : Byron Bay Lighthouse & Dracula's

Thursday 30th October 2014

We woke to the smell of woodsmoke, Goodbye Dorrigo & a long drive through the varoius national parks on our route, We travelled through varying amounts of smoke, most of the view points obscured... Another bizarre lunch scenario at a 24 hour cafe , selling squid at a dollar a ring & chips liberally coated in plain or chicken salt ( whatever that is !)

Byron bay lighthouse, for $7 we were afforded the luxury of driving to the car park near the top.

We pretended we could see the pod of Dolphins, another hiker was showing us & Posed by the sign telling us we were at the most eastern point on mainland Australia.

The rocky bay provided some stunning views.

We arrived at Jupiters Casino & Hotel at Gold coast ( Oz's version of Vegas ) & our eagerly anticipated " Dracula Show ".

The meal was served by our weirdly dressed hosts, after a trip on their Ghost Train. The Show a burlesque extravaganza - a-la -Rocky Horror style , was polished & impressive..My massive fish bowl cocktail was a challenge to say the least.

We returned to the hotel & took a quick tour of the vast casino.

We checked the news & can find no info on our potential bush fire, the region is tinder dry.

Ian wants to sleep with the curtains open to enjoy his " Hinterland View", I suspect he will be making a 4am journey to the curtains to switch it off  !
