Crowds winding up for a big day at Splendour in the Grass 2010 listening to Yacht Club DJs. BLUESFEST director Peter Noble has hit back at claims that he doesn’t understand the issues surrounding Byron Shire’s policy on major events. Mayor Jan Barham said recently that Mr Noble’s belief that the events policy was “anti-music” was “confused”. Music events had been singled out because they were occasions which had an impact on the wider community and could cause conflict, so needed planning regulations. But Mr Noble said there was no confusion around the fact that most people in the community wanted to see music presented in a safe, friendly setting outside of pubs and clubs in the town. He also [...]
IT’S official. Splendour in the Grass will return to Woodfordia in Queensland this year. Because the application for a permanent site at North Byron Parklands is still being consid-ered, it won’t be held at the Yelgun site this year.

It is hoped that they will make a decision shortly.” The three-day music event kicks off on July 29 and finishes on July 31 in its second year at the Queensland site. Despite damage to the Woodford site during the Queensland floods, Splendour organisers are “confident” it will be restored in [...]

Celebration is at the heart of Byron’s creative culture and you can share the experience in the Tipi Forest at SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS 2009.

A New South Wales whale researcher says some humpbacks have started their northern migration earlier than usual. Wally Franklin from the Oceania Project says whales have been spotted off Byron Bay, in northern NSW, and should now have started making their way around the eastern side of Fraser Island off south-east Queensland. Mr Franklin says he does not think there is any reason why some whales have started the journey early. “There haven’t been many reports since, so I don’t think it indicates any general change in the migration, but I would expect from here on in to begin getting regular reports and of course June and July is the peak of the migration, so there’ll be plenty flowing up [...]

The Department of Immigration is investigating claims that sham marriages arranged by a religious sect have taken place in Byron Bay, on the New South Wales north coast. A national newspaper alleged last week that devotees of the Indian guru Osho, known as sanyassins, have taken part in the marriages to obtain residency for foreign worshippers. A spokeswoman for the department confirmed that officers will be sent to the Byron Shire this week. She says the investigation was prompted by reports from residents and the newspaper article.

Justine Elliot, the Member for Richmond met with Barry Evans the Director of The Buttery this week to discuss the Buttery’s plans for a new facility in Bangalow. The Buttery began in 1973 as a drop-in centre for youth, run by volunteers. Since those early days it has developed into one of the most successful programs of its kind providing residential treatment and outreach services for adults seeking treatment and assistance for addiction problems. Barry Evans Director of The Buttery said ‘The existing premises in Binna Burra are almost 100 years old and space for expansion is limited – the Buttery simply cannot meet the growing demand for beds in our therapeutic community’.

Byron Bay Premium Ale, it seems to be a winner. This low-key beer is gaining traction despite have a minuscule marketing budget and a small distribution network. It is a cheeky drop and not because it is a surprisingly well-flavoured brew with a 5 per cent alcohol bite. For a start it is a lager and not an ale, for those who care about the distinction. And the Byron Bay Brewery doesn’t exist – yet. The beer is concocted in Sydney by contract brewers and the bloke who runs the show lives on the Central Coast of New South Wales, which is a long swim from Wategos.
Byron Bay’s Danny Wills vs Kelly Slater on Gold Coast. EIGHT-times world champion Kelly Slater yesterday nominated the Gold Coast’s Joel Parkinson as the man who could deny him an unprecedented ninth world title this year, but first he has to get past veteran Suffolk Park surfer Danny Wills. Slater, 35, starts his quest today when the season-opening Quiksilver Pro gets underway at Snapper Rocks on the Gold Coast. Last night’s forecast was for a one-metre swell to kick off the $300,000 World Championship Tour (WCT) season, building in the wake of a cyclone in the Coral Sea towards the end of the week.

Land near Byron Bay added to national parks The Bundjalung people say the addition of 14 parcels of land near Byron Bay, in northern New South Wales, to national parks, marks the end of a long struggle. More than 70 hectares of Crown land will be added to the Arakwal National Park, and the 50 hectare Ti Tree Lake Aboriginal Area will be created at a site considered sacred by Bundjalung women. Land south either side of the Cape Byron lighthouse and areas along the beach-front will be jointly managed by the Bundjalung people. Bundjalung member Yvonne Stewart says the lake is of particular importance. “The most significant land that’s been handed back into national parks is the Aboriginal women’s [...]

Youth Activities Centre – The YAC shuts down!! While waiting for the second last live gig on Tuesday night, young YAC enthusiasts consider a future without the venue. A petition was handed around, collecting over 200 signatures. It called for Council to commit to renovating the YAC so that it can gain its Place of Public Entertainment Licence (POPE) and continue providing a drug and alcohol free venue for Byron Shire’s young people. For many years now it has been clear to Byron Shire Council inspectors and to staff at the Byron Bay Youth Activities Centre (YAC) that the YAC facilities require a considerable overhaul to make it a safe place for youth entertainment. So clear in fact, that nine [...]

THE JUDGES who named Byron Bay’s Main Beach the sexiest in Australia probably caught a glimpse of Philippa Wester and Jeremy Bennett f&*^%ing in the ocean. The soon-to-be-married, good looking Byron Bay couple are regular beach-goers and were not surprised to hear their home stretch of sand was one of the sexiest in the world. The list of the world’s 25 sexiest beaches was compiled by the famous US Forbes Traveller magazine based on research by their own journalists, and other industry experts including tour planners, meteorologists, hotel owners and marine biologists. Byron Bay was the only Australian beach to make the list, which also featured Eleuthera in The Bahamas, Lover’s Beach on the Baja Peninsula in Mexico, and Fijiâ’s [...]

Large steel sculptures and massive stone structures have been cropping up over the years, as he turns into art whatever he can lay his hands on.

A Byron Bay surfer has created a wave of success thanks to a new water sports leg. Ron Fidler, 56, has developed a waterproof prosthetic sports limb with a shock absorber that allows amputees to surf standing up. The limb was developed over six months thanks to a Southport prostheticist. Fidler’s leg was amputated above the knee after an industrial accident when he was 19, according to The Courier-Mail. From them, and until now, Fidler had been unable to catch a wave standing up. He is now looking to start a disabled surfing competition, as part of the world surfing circuit. “No one has ever done it,” he said. “It will snowball, I know it will.”
