Nuclear-powered subs? Dr Caldicott speaks

‘America has 18 Trident submarines, powered by highly enriched Uranium 235, which can be used as fuel for nuclear weapons.

Luxury Byron resort Crystalbrook Byron has come up with an incredible offer to anyone tragically stuck, like us, in the Byron border bubble – a locals’ stay of $250 per night that includes a $50 contribution to local charity, The SHIFT Project Byron, as well as free daily yoga classes and a chance to laze around on the decks drinking cocktails.

My wife, for example, was booked for a child-and-husband free trip to a friend’s 50th in Port Douglas in early August until the border lockdown luckily freed up some precious ‘family’ time for her. Whilst she’s expressed relief that she’ll now be able to hear, first-hand, the full story of my successes and setbacks in polishing our car, she would also like to support the excellent hospitality staff, chefs and particularly the cocktail makers at Crystalbrook, as local jobs are again under threat from another lockdown.

Jordan Rogers, General Manager at Crystalbrook Byron, said the lockdown had provided an ideal opportunity to extend an offer to any locals, and in fact anyone living in the Northern Rivers between Tweed and Clarence Valley (and inland too), to enjoy the quiet season of Byron Bay without the crowds, and embrace getting out to enjoy the restaurants, shops and surf without having to stand in line or book months in advance.

The offer also creates the opportunity to make a serious difference. ‘Our hope is that in creating this offer, we can also create an impact on the lives of the local women that The SHIFT Project support, helping them move from homelessness to independence,’ said Jordan. ‘At Crystalbrook Byron we believe we have a responsibility to our community, be it through sustainable initiatives that lighten the footprint of travellers, or activities that support our locals.’

Use promo code LOVEBB and book direct, online at crystalbrookcollection.com for stays between Wednesday to Saturday, until 31 August 2021.
