Interview with Claire Atkins from SHIT

I saw SHIT last year and I was blown away. Incredible script. Incredible acting.

A fire has destroyed what is believed to be the Nomads’ bikie clubhouse in Byron Bay’s industrial area in the early hours of this morning (Monday).

Emergency services were called to Brigantine Street about 3.35am where a building, believed to be linked to the Nomads, was found to be well alight.

The cause of the fire is yet to be determined and a crime scene has been established which will be forensically examined when the building is declared safe to enter.

No-one is believed to have been in the building when the fire started.

Police are also investigating a shooting at a house in Banora Point, also early this morning, which may be linked to the fire.

Emergency services were called to the Anthony Way home about 3.25am after shots were also fired at a motor vehicle in nearby Laura Street.

There were no reports of injuries.

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.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. 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.


  1. [The Nomads bring] trouble to a peaceful town like Byron Bay. [They have a] logo with a swastika on the helmet. They obviously don’t have any family members who suffered under the Nazis. My mother and grandparents are Polish and were imprisoned when their homeland was invaded. They endured 5 long years of suffering in Nazi Labour Camps with many deaths and inhumanities. The Nomads don’t [seem to understand that].
