Will Byron become the Malibu of the antipodes?

Here’s another reason for millennials to be marching on the street. We found out last week that on census day 2021, 15 per cent of the dwellings in the Byron Shire were unoccupied (2,348 places to be precise). That figure was 30 per cent in Byron Bay itself, three times the national average.

In response to John Jennings, Numinbah (12 May), ‘Who shall I vote for?’ Simple answer – The Greens. From their website: ‘The Greens plan to fix our health services and make dental and mental health care free for all who need it, not just those who can afford it.

‘The Greens will… reinvest the private health rebate back into the public system so we can slash wait times and remove out of pocket costs. By taxing the billionaires and big corporations… everyone can get the care they need, when they need it.’

John, you don’t have to vote for one of the major parties; every vote for The Greens counts. Help get more Greens into the Senate to make your voice heard.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. By taxing the billionaires and big corporations they will leave the country.
    By pumping money into the public health system you will incentivise the biomedical industry to raise all their prices.
    These are not solutions, they are slogans.

      • None probably Richard – that would be too much effort.
        Much easier to hide anonymously behind a keyboard launching cynical angry whinges whilst being an expert on everything.

  2. A vote for greens is a vote for fixing the climate and pollution problems. Solid , concrete solutions . Not pretending to and doing nothing . Greedy billionaires polluting the air we breathe and water we drink and swim in and not paying any tax at all. Nothing . Wreck our land and run away with the profits and leave us to clean up the mess.

  3. Phil it’s not hard mate .. how are the greens going
    Pay for all the promises ? Where is the revenue
    Coming from to fix climate change ?

    • Same place every other party pays for theirs.
      Unfortunately for us and your fixation Craig, the Greens aren’t in government, so not your problems or theirs.
