A woman was found dead in sand dunes at the southern end of Tallow beach at around 11.20 on Monday morning (June 9).

The body was found adjacent to the Suffolk Beachfront Holiday Park, not far from where the finals of the Ben King Memorial Classic were in progress at nearby Broken Head.

A spectator attending the Byron Bay Boardriders’ annual event told Echonetdaily that they saw police and paramedics arriving as they were leaving the event.

Paramedics declared the woman deceased at the scene.

At this stage, her identity and the cause of her death are unknown but police say the circumstances are not suspicious.

A crime scene has been established, which will be examined by forensic specialists, and a post mortem examination will be conducted.

Anyone with information about the woman’s death is urged to contact Tweed/Byron Local Area Command or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
