Clouds didn’t affect the beaming smiles of around 400 people to watch the first sun of 2016 emerge during The First Sun event held at the Cape Byron Lighthouse on New Year’s Day.

Byron shire councillor Paul Spooner said there were ‘lots of Aums, downward dogs,  kauna experience and the Bunyarra Dancers helped get the sun up over the horizon’.
