Seven Mile resident Alison Drover has praised police after they acted upon information over a doof party that was being arranged for an area within Arakwal National Park, Byron Bay, last Saturday evening. 

Police reported that they made a number of patrols of the area with National Parks and Wildlife Service and Byron Shire Council rangers. 

‘A small number of persons were located who had lit a fire on a beach within the National Park,’ a police report stated.

Police praised

‘These persons were removed from the area after the fire was extinguished.’

Ms Drover thanked inspector Greg Jago for responding. She told The Echo, ‘Thankfully the planned doof at Whites Beach didn’t go ahead. We are in communication with other groups and the mayor says he will be convening a meeting soon.

‘It’s very encouraging the community is working together to avert potential damage and fires in national parks.

‘This is about education too; many locals are unaware of the dangers of fires and the impacts they can have.’
