Byron Bay Post Office was cordoned off for part of the morning, with police, fire brigade and hazmat officers in attendance, after a mysterious white powder was discovered.

Tao Jones, who was passing and took this photo, told Echonetdaily, ‘They wouldn’t let anyone near it. They had all the gear on it. Even the firemen weren’t getting close. They just wouldn’t tell us anything, they were really secretive about it. One guy said there was white powder in the floor.’

Bob from Fundies, which shares the PO building said, ‘They found some white powder and they’re trying to analyse it. They’ve all gone now but got all paranoid about it.’

Post Office staff declined to comment.

Both the PO and the health food shop are now operating normally.
