Further to V Beckwith’s letter (Febuaury 27) about people caring for Brunswick Heads, mention should be made of Simon and Lorraine who run Byron Bay Eco Cruises & Kayaks on the Brunswick River. 

Simon is passionate and knowledgeable about the river and its wildlife and puts back into the environment every year by running a Cleanup Australia event. Last Sunday volunteers helped pull larger bits of rubbish from the river banks onto Simon’s boat. During their regular cruises staff try to collect smaller bits of rubbish found floating down the river.  

If you haven’t been out with Simon and Lorraine the upper reaches of the river are peaceful and beautiful. This is a local business that takes its ecotourism credentials seriously and is well worth supporting.
