After years in the W.A desert looking for gold, I arrived in Byron in '95. Then, Byron was full of alternative lifestyle people, dreads, tats and piercings. Main Beach parking lot was full of combi’s, 24/7, Tyagarah had 300 people camping. Slowly, the trendy sea change has taken over; Byron is becoming straighter and squarer. Still though, I consider it to be the best place to live on the east coast; incredible nature, beauty, space. And after my international travels, I still call Australia and Byron, my home.
