BLOG MONTHLY ARCHIVES: JULY 2013
Winter waves and then the sun slipped behind the mountains….. beautiful Byron Bay sunset. Just a short stroll from Atlantic Guesthouses.
As sponsors of the Byron Bay Writers Festival 2013 we’ve been allocated our very own courtesy bus pick up. If you are staying with us during the festival your trip to the site will be even easier. The courtesy bus picks up every half hour from Atlantic (just hail the driver) and takes you to the site.
With a stellar line-up including Archie Roach, Maxine McKew, Simon Crean, Ross Coulthart, Michael Leunig, John Cantwell, Peter FitzSimons, Sarah Turnbull, DBC Pierre, Andrea Goldsmith, Peter Carey, MJ Hyland, Anne Summers, Cate Kennedy and George Megalogenis, audiences will be spoilt for choice. And Sunday 4 August sees a marquee dedicated to young readers, hosted by Maddie and POSSUM, from Prime 7. A diverse range of local writers will also add spice to an already flavoursome program. “Whether you find pleasure in poetry, performance, history, humour, fiction, non-fiction or journalism, you’ll discover writers and conversations to sate your cravings. You’ll be challenged, you’ll be surprised, you’ll have encounters with big thinkers, you’ll laugh and probably you’ll cry, but you’ll be richly rewarded.” The entire program is available online. Don’t delay: features will sell out and workshop numbers are strictly limited.
Byron Bay has been listed as the No.1 Hot Spot for whale watching by NSW National Parks.
Every year the Humpback Whales slowly make their way north past Byron Bay on their annual migratory route to the warmer tropical waters and returning south during Spring. As they say location, location, location and the Byron Bay Lighthouse offers a brilliant location for whale watching.
