    It became cloudier as we got closer to Queensland.

    The road, where the top cars are travelling on, was part of the old Pacific Highway before the new highway was built & now services Ocean Shores, near Brunswick Heads.

    The rather nondescript sign welcoming people to NSW at the Qld/BSW border. The actual border sign is even more nondescript.

    What used to be a banana plantation is now a work site for one of the tunnels being built for the Pacific Highway's Tintenbar/Ewingsdale bypass. This in the hinterland of Byron Bay area.

    Here is a link to this hillside when it was still a banana plantation.

    Another view of the former banana plantation now work site for the tunnel.  Plenty of earthworks happening on top of the hill & the other side.

    Some cattle grazing on the lovely green grass of the North Coast. The following seventeen images were taken during our latest trip to Brisbane in early May.

    New roadworks for the badly needed Tintenbar-Ewingsdale bypass proceed through banana, coffee bean & avocado plantations. This will be a continuation of the Ballina bypass. Now back on the old Pacific Highway.

    A glimpse of more roadworks. with the old highway on the right. The tree in the middle appears to have been cut in half. A bit precarious.

    Close to the previous bridge crossing as it exits the cutting.

    Out of sight of the Tintenbar-Ewingsdale bypass roadworks, on the winding, hilly Pacific Highway.

    Driving down the steep, winding hill inland from Byron Bay. In the background is the Pacific Ocean which can be seen from this hill.

    Continuing down the hill. This will, thankfully, be bypassed.
