Regardless of whether you like to get your kit on or off Byron’s local naturist group is inviting everyone to a fun family day at the clothing-optional Tyagarah beach this coming public holiday Monday, January 28, from 10 till 3pm.
‘Naturist and non-naturist families, couples and singles are invited to come and join the fun at Byron’s only legal clothing-optional beach, 200 metres south of Grays Lane car park,’ said Byron Naturist (BN) spokesperson Debra Conomy.
The event will coincide with the final day of beach patrols by the Australian Lifeguard Service for the season.
‘We want to thank the lifeguards for the wonderful service they have provided over the past few weeks, both in the water and on the sand,’ she said.
‘They did everything from clearing the water after shark sightings to treating the odd bluebottle sting. Through it all they were very helpful, friendly and courteous.’
Fun and games
The day will feature beach volleyball, frisbee games and, of course it is recommended that you swim between the flags.
‘Maybe Cr Spooner will lend us his bat for a game of beach cricket,’ Ms Conomy quipped.
‘On a more serious note, breast cancer awareness ambassador Marilyn Bradbury will be there to remind us all of the importance of getting a regular check-up.
‘Clad or unclad we’d love to see you and your family at Tyagarah on Monday.
‘If naturism teaches us one thing, it is that every body is different and every body is beautiful,’ she said.
‘We also wish to thank Byron councillors, who voted unanimously to trial the lifeguard service – it has been a great success.’
Everyone is reminded that nudity is not permitted in the car park, you must wait until you are between the clothing optional signs before stripping off.
