Hi and welcome to the site, nice part of the world at Byron, but must say I preffered it 20 years ago before everyone cottoned on to what a great place it is, same can be said about a lot of places.

Just out of interest, where do you park your boat? Brunswick or Ballina ? And I heard MSB were making it tougher for cruisers stopping over , is this correct?

Lots of Questions straight up, but this is what it's all about here.

Have fun Princess,
