The annual Byron Bay Surf Festival will be held this year from the 24th – 26th October 2014. Byron offers the perfect location to host the festival, drawing from the rich local and national surfing heritage and the creative energy.
The 3 day event focuses on a fusion of ’Surf Culture Now’, featuring surf art, photography, live music, surf history, events and workshops.
Other highlights will include the not to be missed Tee Pee markets on the Saturday, plus youth art events, a swap-meet as well as the Go Pro Short Film Competition.
An Invitational Surf Art Exhibition will be held on the Wednesday night at The Atlantic Byron Bay, showcasing artwork from respected highly influential local and international artists from the surf industry. Their Artwork will be on display throughout the Festival. Stay tuned for artist announcements to be released in the lead up to the event.
The Byron Bay Surf Festival is in its forth year, bringing together a creative global surfing community in a non-competitive environment. The Atlantic is proud a sponsor of the festival, located in the heart of Byron Bay.
Thank you to Christine Chang Hanway for the article about Atlantic on Remodelista.
“Imagine a Scandinavian seaside fishing village in cool and casual Byron Bay, the historical and spiritual home of surfing in Australia. You’d want to linger in a place like that. And if you did, you’d be following in the footsteps of Kimberly Amos and Stephen Eakin, ex-Sydneysiders who decided after a year’s sabbatical in Byron Bay that they’d settle permanently. She’s an artist, he’s an ex-banker, and together they founded Atlantic Byron Bay, a boutique hotel with several types of beach cottage accommodations that the pair renovated themselves.”
On your next visit to Byron Bay we encourage you to explore the local region and discover some of the National Parks and Reserves.
ARAKWAL NATIONAL PARK
A gift to the visitors of Byron looking to escape the buzz of the popular town, this breathtaking stretch of secluded sands bordered by 183 hectares of rich coastal heath is a haven for migratory birds and wildlife. A historic agreement between the NSW government and the Arakwal community, the park is an important part of Aboriginal culture. Co-managed by the traditional owners, experience the meandering pathways that link the township of Byron Bay to the Pacific Ocean and marine life that call it home.
BROKEN HEAD NATURE RESERVE
This rare coastal rainforest is home to the sights and sounds of the Aussie scrub. Banksias and tuckeroos shield the rainforest from the salty onshore winds and hardy brush box and native elm flourish amongst bangalow palms. The loud whip-crack of the eastern whip bird is unmistakable as is the mournful cry of the koel ringing eerily in the gullies. Rainforest-clad slopes sweep down to secluded beaches where white breasted sea eagles and brahminy kites plunge to the sea.
Byron Bay is the gateway to some of the most magnificent natural creations. If you are a lover of nature, an explorer of life and a straight up adventurer you will loose yourself in these incredible untouched and protected habitats.
Australia’s oldest running art and craft market, The Channon was first conceptualized in 1976 under the still strongly held ethic “Make It, Bake It, Grow It”. Join visitors both local and afar who verge on the thousands to this normally peaceful village to experience this iconic craft market.
The most colourful and vibrant in the country, you can spend hours meandering around the stalls. Get your fortune told, seek advice from spiritual healers, listen to musicians under the marquee and try the local treats alfresco style.
Second Sunday of every month, 9am-3pm @ Coronation Park, The Channon. More info: www.thechannon.com.au
