Byron Bay Labor held their annual trivia night at the Byron Bay Bowling Club last Friday to a packed audience.
This year’s event featured federal deputy Labor leader Tanya Plibersek.
Co-organiser David Krippner said Ms Plibersek helped local high school teacher Melinda Smotlak host the trivia rounds.
‘Both Tanya and Melinda share a love for author Jane Austen (as well as their Slovenian heritage). Therefore, it was only fitting that a special Jane Austen round was included, which was a hit with literature-lovers.’
He says the meet-and-greet gave locals the opportunity to raise issues with local MP Justine Elliot and Ms Plibersek.
