Neil Matterson, Byron Bay

While on the main beach at Byron at the moment one could be forgiven for expecting to see the sad little donkey, Eeyore, from Winnie the Pooh books.

The destruction of the trees along the foreshore at Byron’s Main Beach has provided an opportunity for the creative minded to utilise the broken tree branches to make crude shelter-like structures. Some of those structures resemble Eeyore’s house. Sadly they also give the impression of the start of a long awaited affordable housing project.

One thing is for sure though, Eeyore lived in the Hundred Acre Wood, which is

certainly a far cry from the straggly number of trees left balancing precariously along the foreshore sand dune.
