Live Byron is a distinctively local blog by photojournalist Veda Dante, whose daily work for the biggest newspapers on the North Coast gives her a unique insight into local events and the characters behind them.
Explore the chefs and entrepreneurs of the region’s best restaurants, get a birds-eye-view of Byron with a local pilot who built his own plane, and meet the space scientist whose hinterland observatory stands starkly against its subtropical backdrop.
From major events like the Mullum Music, Falls and Byron Bay Surf festivals to local showcases like the Bruns Hot Rod and Bangalow Designers Market, Live Byron gives you a personal insight into the eclectic, creative, kind-hearted and confused people behind the news.
Live Byron also provides an intimate insight into family life on a Byron Bay hinterland farm, where invasive weeds are being replaced by native rainforest, tractors regularly break down, children learn about bushfire safety, and a gander becomes a goose.
Drop in, chill out, relax and unwind – Live Byron will give you the heads up on what’s going down.
