Comment: Welcome to the Byron Bay family law dilemma – Jesus wept

Suzanne Sticka, Terranora

Last Wednesday, October 5, we visited Byron Bay  with eight of our family members up from Canberra for the week.

We took them to our favourite beach – Wategos – and the lighthouse.

Much to our disappointment both the male and female toilets at Wategos were not a pleasant experience (disgusting). They were very unclean to overflowing and so much so my nephew refused to use the men’s.

The council charges $8 to park at the beaches and lighthouse, why can’t they ensure the facilities are kept in better condition? This was two days after a long weekend in school holidays. Just imagine if our visitors were from overseas – not a good impression for our tourism industry.

I wanted to voice my great disappointment and hope that Byron Council can ensure the toilets are clean.

What does Australia Day mean?

Another Australia Day. Another divisive polemic about the date, the day, and its meaning. Those who seek to change the date argue that 26 January signifies the beginning of Britain’s invasion of Australia and the violent expropriation of Aboriginal lands.
