A new map, which Byron Council says is ‘designed to help visitors discover hidden gems and attractions across the whole of the Byron Shire,’ was launched by mayor Simon Richardson at the Crystal Castle and Shambala Gardens today.
Called Byron Unfolded, the map’s purpose is to ‘give people the information and local hints they need to embark on their own journey of discovery across the shire,’ according to mayor Richardson.
‘We want our visitors to experience the immense natural beauty of the area, to meet the colourful local characters and have a chance to meander around the towns, beaches and waterways at their own pace.
‘The new Byron Unfolded map is designed to inspire discovery of all that our shire has to offer and to encourage greater visitor dispersal at the same time,’ he said.
The free DL size pocket map, which folds out to A2 size also offers must do, must see and good-to-know facts and hints.
The NSW State Government part-funded the map with funding from the flood recovery program, together with industry and Byron Shire Council. The map is now available in the Byron Visitor Centre and Brunswick Heads Visitor Centre as well as at key attractions and businesses around the Byron Shire.
