We noticed a page of fabulous Sixties news in the Byron Shire Echo this week, and thought you might be interested to know that Byron Library (cnr Lawson and Middleton Street, Byron Bay) is running a display this month highlighting the books, music, film, fashion and culture of the 60s framed in our own fabulous ‘Magic Bus’. Pop in for a ride back to where the wild things are, Mrs Robinson, Get Smart, go-go boots and general groovy-ness.

Visitors swinging by near closing time can even catch a tune or two.

Support The Echo

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.
