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.
