Take part in the annual Whale Census

Cape Byron Lighthouse Sunday, 24th June, 7am to 4pm 

The census is organised by ORRCA and relies on volunteers to get outdoors and record how many whales are spotted. This data is used to help understand more about whale populations and their migration along the NSW coast.

There will be ORRCA and National Parks volunteers at the Cape Byron State Conservation Area, the perfect spot to join in the annual Whale Census. Spot whales from the iconic Cape Byron Lighthouse or take in the sights along the Cape Byron walking track.

Byron Bay's best coffee in town

Byron Bay takes its coffee seriously.

When in town, we like to drop into a whole range of coffee shops for our caffeine fix. So, we asked our Facebook fans which cafe they believe serves up the best coffee in Byron Bay.

We tallied the votes, and here are the top five picks (in alphabetical order).

Bayleaf

Bayleaf has been a favourite spot for coffee in Byron for years. With a bustling atmosphere and hip interior, it’s the perfect spot to escape the heat in summer or cosy up with friends in winter.

Passionate about serving locally-sourced, seasonal produce, the team at Bayleaf offer an inventive, ever-changing lunch and breakfast menu alongside their top-notch coffee.

Combi

Dedicated to delivering the very finest brew, Combi was another favourite among our Facebook fans.

The baristas use a fair-trade blend of beans with a medium to strong flavour complimented by a pinch of sweetness. Plus, all coffees are made double shot, so if it’s a morning kick you’re after, Combi is a great option.

Dip

A popular spot for breakfast and lunch, Dip serves up some of the best coffees in town. Using local, organic coffee beans, the skilled baristas at Dip help locals and visitors alike take on the day – even if that means lying on the beach!

The outdoor seats are the ideal place to people-watch as you enjoy your cuppa – you’ll want to sit there for hours.

Safya Byron Bay

Speciality coffee, Egyptian-inspired food, and one of the homeliest café settings in Byron Bay serviced by a friendly, tight-knit team of locals: that’s Safya

Bringing in a new single-origin brew every week, Safya is a coffee-lovers paradise.

Sparrow Coffee Co.

Need coffee fast? Drop into Sparrow for coffee on the fly. At Sparrow’s Byron location (you’ll find Sparrow Coffee Co. in several spots throughout NSW and QLD), expect quality, hand-crafted Allpress coffee without the wait.

If you’re feeling peckish, indulge in organic sourdough bread and pastries from The Bread Social.

Byron Writers Festival Announces Full Program

Byron Writers Festival 2018 (3-5 August) has announced a thrilling program featuring 140 writers, thinkers and commentators who will converge in Byron Bay for Australia’s largest regional literary event. The three day 2018 Festival of panels and conversations will unfold across six stages at the stunning beachside Festival site, and will be complemented by diverse writers’ workshops and evening feature events in Byron Bay and the wider Northern Rivers region.

‘The Byron Writers Festival program seeks to inspire, engage and cultivate conversations between our writer guests and avid audiences,’ said Festival Director, Edwina Johnson. ‘This year the stories in our program will take us from the wilds of New Zealand to North Korea, Tuscany and back home to near-by Goonengerry. We traverse much territory including anxiety, crime, the Frontier Wars, the Anthropocene, science, comedy, immigration, the wellness industry, and poetry. We explore music, whales and romance and debate whether reading can make you happier. Writers will nominate the books that changed them, and will examine how to shape life into story. For three days we celebrate emerging writers and literary giants from near and far.’

STONE & WOOD PREPARES FOR PRE-SALE TICKET RELEASE FOR UPCOMING FESTIVAL OF THE STONE

Join Stone & Wood for a night that celebrates community, live music, good food and the release of their 2018 Stone Beer, all while raising money for Big Scrub Landcare. 

Sign up on the festival website: www.festivalofthestone.com to be notified when pre-sale tickets come online for Festival of the Stone happening Saturday 9th June, 3 – 10pm (Queen’s Birthday long weekend, NSW) at Stone & Wood’s brewery in Byron Bay.

Come along and kick back as the sun sets and the beer flows. Enjoy live music and food truck cuisine with your friends and family at the annual event that celebrates the release of their dark winter seasonal ‘Stone Beer’. 

Stone & Wood will be pouring their beers from their iconic beer truck Clyde and the newest addition to the brewery’s fleet Trevor the Troopie . The first kegs of 2018 Stone Beer will be tapped and available until the tap runs dry. Brewed eight weeks earlier, the beer honours the ancient techniques of brewing. By adding wood fired stones to the kettle to rouse the boil, the malt characters are intensified, which contributes to the beer’s roasted caramel aroma that’s balanced with a warming, full bodied cocoa flavour… perfect for a cold winter’s night!

All profits from the beer sales and tickets will go directly to national not-for-profit Ingrained Foundation, a separate entity of Stone & Wood that was set up to extend upon the brewery’s community program, which to date has donated $630,000 to a long list of not for profit partners. Stone & Wood will donate $1 per h/l sold to the Ingrained Foundation which along with proceeds raised from events such as Festival of the Stone will be used to partner and support local charities to create progress in their communities.

This year the Ingrained Foundation will donate proceeds from Festival of the Stone to Big Scrub Landcare. The brewery works closely with this local charity who focuses on restoration and growth of the Northern Rivers Big Scrub Rainforest.

Shannon Greenfields from Big Scrub Landcare says of hearing the news “It is simply fantastic that we are able to partner with Stone & Wood for their Festival of Stone. We are so proud of the work the team do to help our charity and continue to show in the community”

Family friendly, the festival is about bringing the community together. There will be a kid’s area ‘Malt Disney’ with tunes for the kids to dance along to, as well as crafts and entertainment from Spaghetti Circus.

Tickets are $30 via Eventbrite (going off last year, there won’t be any on the door!) and transport to and from the brewery will be available. To guarantee your alert for ticket pre-sale, makes sure you sign up at www.festivalofthestone.com.

Get Set for the 2018 Byron Bay Triathlon

The 23rd edition of the Byron Bay Triathlon is returning to town on Saturday,12 May. An expected field exceeding 1000 athletes competing in Tempta, Sprint and Olympic distances will be joined by 100 juniors, many of whom are competing in their very first triathlon.

The course, which includes a revised cycle leg and a run under the famous Byron Lighthouse, provides a unique setting for athletes of all abilities to compete.

Organisers are expecting a competitive field comprised of athletes from around the region and nationally. The Men's podium is shaping up to be a battle of the Northern Rivers, with 2017 Mens Open runner up Matt Slee from Suffolk Park back with the gold in his sights, as well as local favourites Harry Jones and Jack Orr. Holly Grice is also back to defend her 2017 title, facing strong competition from Courtney Gilfillan.

"We are pleased to once again organise the Byron Bay Tri," says Race Director Mike Crawley.

"The triathlon in Byron Bay is a celebration of the local area, athletes are able to relax in the morning, have a midday kick off, and celebrate into the night along the beautiful Byron beachside. It is the perfect end to the triathlon season."

"We are also excited to see so much enthusiasm from local businesses, offering promotions and incentives to athletes to welcome them to the community and increase economic benefits throughout town."

Local Byron accommodation houses are already seeing bookings increase, and event organisers are predicting an increase in registration with athletes still feeling the buzz of the Commonwealth Games.

Water safety is once again being managed by the Byron Bay Surf Lifesaving Club, with funds also being raised for the local Byron Bay Scouts and Byron Bay Cycle Club.

The event organisers thank local residents and businesses for working with the event despite any inconvenience caused by road closures from 11.00am to 3.30pm towards Suffolk Park; and until 4.30pm in the CBD.
