The Officical Report
East Coast March 26 – 30, 2009
SE Qld/northern NSW.
Since the last SE Qld/northern NSW Meltdown that covered until
Tuesday February 24,
the waves have been pumping in SE Qld and
northern NSW. Ex tropical cyclone Jasper was camped in the Coral Sea,
well offshore and a blocking high has been camped in the Tasman Sea
streaming a SE airflow onto the coast from way offshore. Last
Thursday afternoon the E swell jumped up into the 4-5 ft range.
On Friday morning it was flawless. Early offshore SSW winds guaranteed
clean, sunny conditions. There were some beachies handling it on the
morning high tide, but the best value was on all the points from Byron to
Noosa.

Byron Bay. Overcast and still looking good.

March 13, 2009
There is a walking track up to the lighthouse from  the eastern end of Watego's Beach.  Many steps included!!

This shot is taken from the walking track up to the lighthouse at the eastern end of Watego's Beach.

At the other end of Watego’s Beach are several free BBQ’s.  When the conditions are right it is a world class spot.
The Pass

The Pass

Between Main Beach and The Pass (the right of this picture) is Clarke’s Beach.  It is a great spot for the novice surfer.  

The sun may not be out but the water is still warm.

On Main Beach this afternoon there was plenty of activity despite the overcast weather.  Note the wreck of the Wollongbar in the background.

Byron Bay is an especially picturesque place on a sunny day.  These pictures were taken on Sunday (8th March 2009) all at the top end of  town.

The Wreck is an iconic Byron Surf spot named after the vessel Wollongbar which broke from its moring and sank during a cyclone in 1922.

Fiercely defended building restrictions help Byron Bay fend off high rise development.  The low roof lines contribute greatly to the relaxed  feel of this special little town.

One of the ever popular ways to spend a Sunday.  Ocean views and live music.  Someone’s got to do it!
