Debra Conomy, Byron Naturists Group.

The Byron Naturists welcome the vote by Council on Thursday to re-affirm their previous decision to keep the Tyagarah clothing-optional beach and to implement further safety measures.

This process has been democratic. On TWO occasions a majority of Councillors have now been satisfied that progress is occurring at the beach and that further improvement is possible. Councillors came to their decision after consulting BOTH nearby residents AND beach users from the Shire.

The Byron Naturists believe cameras in the beach car park and a proper management mechanism are NOT a betrayal of locals but a WIN/WIN for everyone.

The Byron Naturists now want to work constructively with all parties to make the new measures successful.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
