Jonson Street bus shelter gone and an era ended

In separate incidents over the past week we’ve had people shitting openly on our driveway; knocking down fences and riding motorbikes around our house; peeping through shrubbery at my naked self drinking my early morning coffee on our back steps; camping messily and blocking our only access; walking naked with their dog through our backyard; completely stripping our fruit trees; and numerous walkers searching for peace in nature – thus completely destroying ours.

Yes, we have a locked gate and signage stating private, and to live on such a large property in an isolated place and have no such thing as peace or privacy is another example of the hip(py)ocrisy of the Byron Shire. We dream of being able to afford to move to suburbia where common courtesy and boundaries are recognised and mostly adhered to – leaving the land to be choked with weeds and impassable.

Next time you want to spend time in nature, please go to the beach or to one of the many designated National Parks in our Shire which myself and other older residents helped create – that’s what they’re f**king there for!

P Domaille, Huonbrook
