Tonight’s event in Byon has been moved due to inclement weather to Byron Bay High School’s MPC Hall at 7pm. Both the venue and starting time have been changed but the atmosphere will be the same.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
