Byron fades to grey

‘Hollywood’ drug squads over the top

I guess we have to thank Hollywood for the enduring myth that a black-clad squad of elite 'blokes', preferably with cool helicopters, from the capital are needed to crack down on really serious crime in hick parts of the country like Mullumbimby.

Dorothea Michel, Byron Bay

I’ve got the feeling that the colour of Byron Bay is fading away. It seems like every house that is getting newly painted is painted in a not-colour! From light grey over muddy grey to nearly black.

Combined with a cold, modern architecture, you only have to look at such a house and you get depressed. Sure, it might be only a fashion, but that fashion will stay for the next 20 years. And every week there is another house, fence or wall newly painted in these asking-for-Prozac colours.

It looks to me that Byron is slowly but surely turning into Mordor!
