Tweed Council – committed to a sustainable future

Tweed Shire Council is committed to a sustainable future and working with the community to protect the region’s internationally significant environment. 

It appears state-run entities promoting their own ‘values’ and agenda continue to erode people’s freedom. It doesn’t matter whether or not you enjoy and feel comfortable in your own skin or enjoy the many other benefits of a clothing-optional beach.

What does matter is whether people are able to legally enjoy this naked liberation on at least one beach in Byron Shire. It appears Byron’s alternative culture, and its passion for respecting and embracing minority lifestyles, unfortunately continues to dissipate. I think the freedom and respect of a minority lifestyle choice are worth fighting for… don’t you?
