Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: The Sol of Mullumbimby

I love walking through cemeteries. I love to read the gravestones. They are like the first and last page of a novel whose contents I will never know. Here lies many from my community; they were born, lived, and then lost. They were loved. This evening I am walking with my 11-year-old daughter and my husband through Mullumbimby’s cemetery. It is a quiet and beautiful place. I feel the stories rumbling under our feet. I never understand why people see these places as creepy. They are places of reverence and remembering.

Creative Director Debbie Buck has a passion for the arts and for our collective cultural community coming together in new and interesting ways, and she has created Eco Lane Artisan Walking Tours to cater to like-minded people.

Deb has worked in the events and hospitality industries for over 15 years. Being innovative and environmentally aware, it has always been a joy for Deb to be an advocate for the little grass roots connections that weave between members of our beautiful creative community.

Deb, who is originally from New Zealand, launched Eco Lane in October this year. ‘I am passionate about bringing people together and co-creating experiences that are a little bit out of the ordinary,’ says Deb. ‘I love seeing the hosts, who invite us into their spaces, light up when they talk about their art or products and let us in on some magic elements as we hear about what they do and why they are so proud to be independent ethical visionaries.

Deb says she really enjoys seeing her guests discover new artistic spaces. ‘It’s great when people find something special to take home that they maybe never would have found if they hadn’t joined us at Eco Lane.’

Deb has big plans to expand her tour to more small businesses. ‘Joining us as a host on Eco Lane means we can run more specific tours based on guests’ interests, such as food and beverage, textiles and clothing, jewellery and so on.’

Join one of the Eco Lane as spirited local guides as they help you navigate the best laneways, hidden studios and artisan shopfronts around the Byron Bay Arts and Industry Estate.

‘Over three hours we will visit various traders who will showcase a sweet range of eco-sourced, original design products and bespoke experiences. Spaces where visioning, creating and trading meet; our artisan hosts are ready for you to experience their crafts. Opulent textiles and clothing, luxe well-being products, contemporary and old world styles of art, hand-hammered jewellery, and more. This trail will leave you in awe of the passion behind these artisan’s offerings as you are invited to meet the creators and have a chat about their journey.

‘I will be running tours every week through the summer and look forward to greeting many visitors and locals.

‘You are invited solo, or in a group, to book and join us on a three hour experiential walk around our local Arts and Industry Estate, an always innovative locale, just a 20 minute walk from Byron Bay’s town centre.’

Eco Lane’s Artisan Tours are Byron Bay’s only CBD walking tour operator. ‘We have created these guided trails to share our love and connection to some creative corners that we know you will love too, and will wonder how you ever missed them.’
