About Us

The Byron Shire is a much sort after holiday destination on the North Coast of NSW. Approximately 800 km north of Sydney and 40 km south of the Queensland border, the Byron Shire is perfectly positioned for a peaceful, relaxing holiday in a temperate, tropical climate.
The Byron Shire stretches from Yelgun in the north along the beautiful beaches of South Golden Beach, New Brighton, Brunswick Heads and Tyagarah to the iconic  Byron Bay Beach.
From the coastline the shire stretches west to the townships of Bangalow and Mullumbimby and beyond to the upper reaches of the escarpment.
The picturesque Brunswick River links Mullumbimby and Brunswick Heads by water and is a focal point of the popular Brunswick Valley. Families enjoy the relaxed coastal lifestyle and flock to the holiday parks and other accommodation centres in Brunswick Heads and Mullumbimby.
Byron Bay is a dynamic tourism hub. Its stunning beaches, iconic headland and lighthouse, extensive parklands and eclectic food and retail outlets make it a holiday-makers delight.
Included in the Byron Shire are villages and farming districts such as Main Arm, The Pocket, Yelgun, Montecollum, Huonbrook, Goonengerry, Coorabell, Durrumbul, Myocum, Ewingsdale, Palmwoods and Wilson’s Creek. These areas have beautiful country and coastal views. Breathtaking views can be experienced from many of the country retreats and bed and breakfast accommodation centres dotted along the escarpment.
The township of Ocean Shores, in the north of the valley and historic Billinudgel (home of the famous MA Ring’s Billinudgel Hotel) provide residential and industrial areas for the rapidly growing population of the valley.
A holiday in the Byron Shire provides excellent family entertainment in a pristine environment of coastal waterways and rainforests. The Brunswick River is perfect for swimming, fishing, snorkelling and boating. Patrolled surfing beaches at South Golden Beach, New Brighton, Brunswick Heads and Byron Bay are an added attraction for families making the most of the holiday atmosphere.


 

Community Network Project History

Community members of Byron Shire and visitors to this region were encouraged to access the Community Raffle  and purchase tickets… the purchaser could choose the NFP Organistaion or community group to support when making his /her purchase.

Local businesses have always been the 'backbone' of support for local community organisations. Sponsorship of local sports clubs and generous donation of goods to schools & charities have traditionally provided funds for much needed equipment & resources.

We encourage the local community members to access the raffle page and support the local community groups.

When you purchase a ticket in the raffle you can nominate a school, club or charity you would like to support. A percentage of the ticket revenue will go to the nominated community group.
