Byron Basketball held their 3on3 Comp last Sunday at the Cavanbah Centre, and what an amazing success it was. 

Credit to the volunteers who gave up their Sunday and the large number of basketball fanatics who travelled down from north of the border. 

Twenty-one teams from the Gold Coast and the Byron area battled it out over four age groups from U/12s to U/18s. 


U/12 girls Pacific Pines Panthers (Gold Coast), U/12 boys Pythons (Byron), U/14 boys Astrodogs (Gold Coast), U/16 boys Peanut Butter Fam (Gold Coast), U/18 boys Llamas in Pyjamas (Byron Bay).

A big thankyou to all sponsors.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
