I was born in Byron Bay and together with family members I just had to write about this magnificent place in Australia. Combing family stories for 85 years I hope to honour it’s inspiring history. I tell of the Titans of the pastoral Industry and the bravery during World War II. I joined many environmental protests and continue to enjoy the beauty of organic foods and fair trade produce in this seaside town of spiritual people.

This is my family's revelation of the events within the Byron Shire from 1930. It tells of World War II, the expansion of the pastoral industry when the railway came to town, Hippies bringing their sustainable food and their music, the dawn of a surfing mecca, the organic farming and The Health Resort.
