Byron Bay – I’ve heard it is beautiful place. I think it has some coastal erosion problems due to rising sea level! Save the fresh water Aussies and use those swimming pools for growing some food.

most of Byron – the town and industrial estate – is built on low-lying swamp (wetlands).

beautiful one day, reclaimed by the Bay the next


Jude and Michel Fanton, founders of the AUS Seed Savers network are based there

Very interesting that an existing ‘climate action group’ has decided to ‘transition to a Transition group’. I think it shows the strength of Transition, that it attracts other related groups.

I lived in this area for a few years (1997-2000), and watched Byron from the hills on new years eve 99/00, to see if the lights would go out and life as we knew it would change – it was a mildly dissappointing non-event.

I am delighted to see the unique culture of this part of Northern NSW (Byron/Mullumbimby), take up this more gradual and relevant people-driven change tool, called Transition!
