Byron Bay – An escape to beautiful Killen Falls – 11 January 2024

Last Thursday afternoon students escaped the lively streets of Byron Bay to enjoy some peace, quiet and nature at the beautiful Killen Falls.

Students enjoyed a refreshing afternoon getaway to Killen Falls and Lennox Head. These picturesque locations provide a serene environment for relaxation and exploration. With their natural beauty and tranquil ambiance, both destinations offer an ideal escape from the daily routine.

Killen Falls!

Killen Falls is approximately 30-minutes’ drive southwest of Byron Bay, inland from Lennox Head.

It was a tranquil hike through bushland to the main fall.

Students trekked along river stones on the stream’s edge until they arrived at the swimming hole. They could also access the cave behind Killen’s falls.

Students swam beneath the beautiful falls. The water temperature was cool but quickly become more bearable and enjoyable. The water source that creates the waterfall flows out of Emigrant Creek.

The students then were driven to the iconic Lennox Head destination ‘Lake Ainsworth’.

Lake Ainsworth is a tea tree lake located just north of Lennox Head Town center. It is well known for its red/pink coloring and healing properties due to the tea tree oil that seeps into the water.

Our students enjoyed a swim in the lake and relaxed surrounded by nature.

To finish the day the students received a beautiful digeridoo sound healing upon a Lennox head lookout. Our friends at Conscious Tours created a wonderful, relaxing and rejuvenating day for our hardworking students.
