Byron Bay’s best park now has a screen across its view of the bay.

How did the aesthetics police get this so wrong?

First it was the three-door TARDIS toilet, that thrusts busting punters into the floodlights as they await their time dimensional experience in front of all others to be amused.

Now it’s this horizon blot, in the guise of a BBQ shelter.

These latest additions to our past prized locations are surely on many people’s hit list for demolition or re-location.

The only winners are possibly the real estate agents, as locals give up, sell up and leave.

Very sad.
