Having just spent a week in the Byron area with my family visiting many of the beautiful beaches you have here, I can’t tell you how disappointed I was to discover you had to pay $4 an hour every time you wanted to park at the beach.
Tourists inject an enormous income into the Byron area without having to be gouged by the council every time you want to go to the beach.
Byron council you should wake up, the locals and the tourists think they’re being ripped off, which does Byron more harm than good.
Come to the South Coast travellers, the surf’s great, and our beaches have free car parks for everyone to enjoy. Don’t forget to bring your wetsuit though.
