Byron Bay has long been known to the local Aboriginal Elders as a sacred healing ground. A place where lost souls gather to harvest the restorative powers of nature and float upon the mysterious current of energy that has flowed through the region for tens of thousands of years.
These days, Byron is known world over as a surfing town with a wild nightlife and booming creative scene. But for those who have partied a little too hard or who want to tap into some of that ancient healing energy, Byron can still be a place of peace and restoration. From the moment you feel the warm ocean breeze hit your face, you'll instantly forget that your rent is overdue and your boss has been trying to call you for three days. It's a Temple - a place of wanderlust and enlightenment where the monotonous verses of wearied minds are drowned out by the untamed choruses of the heart which resound around the Bay from dawn to dusk and everything in between.
Nestled in the heart of Byron is Cosmic Garden - a camping ground with a distinct otherworldly feel. Georgia Ansell enriches her caravan soul on a trip to the Bay with ROXY and their new POP Surf collection. She spent sleepy mornings with a coffee in hand, waiting for the sun to rise before hitting the beach to catch a few of the long, luxurious waves that the area is known for. Lazy afternoons were spent sprawled on the soft, white sands of The Pass, soaking up the last of the day's sunshine and revelling in the magic of this natural playground.It's hard to feel anything but completely at peace when you find your place amongst the palm trees overlooking one of the most beautiful waves in the world.
There just might be nothing better than finding your Caravan Soul at the Temple of the Pass.
