Byron Bay’s Magical Moonrises

Moonrise1-flat

Sure, those West Australians get ocean sunsets every day. If you wake early enough you’ll see the sun rising over the ocean here too, but let’s be honest – not all of us are doing yoga in the sand at 5am. The only time I ever see the sun rise over the ocean here in Byron is usually after a massive bender for which I’ve not yet slept.

So it’s nice to know that we get these spectacular moon rises, predictably, for almost a week after every full moon. Remember that little tip and head down to the Cape, or your favourite east, south-easterly vantage point to watch the moon soar high above the infinite sea and into the milky arms of the stars.
