Last Thursday evening saw around 100 members of the Byron Bay Chamber of Commerce come together at the North Beach Platform on Bayshore Drive for the chamber’s monthly networking event.

Guests were invited aboard the Byron Bay Train for drinks and nibbles provided by The Sun Bistro.

The train operates between the CBD and the North Beach precinct.

Event partner Jeremy Holmes of Byron Bay Railroad Company said that after the launch of the train service in December last year, he really wanted to highlight the benefits of the service to local business.

He said, ‘We were pleased to partner with Byron Chamber in hosting this event, which was really designed to provide an opportunity for the business community to experience firsthand the unique offering of the train.’

‘We wanted to use the opportunity to communicate our passion for the service and talk about who we are, how we got here and what future opportunities lay ahead.

‘It was also really important for us that our guests enjoy the experience and gain an insight into the kind of experiences we can create.

‘We have always believed that the train and the services it provides will form an important asset for our community now, and into the future, and we’d like the community to feel as though this is “our” train as a collective.’
