'Totally gutted': Locals angry as nude beach set to stay in Byron Bay
Belongil Beach just north of Byron Bay
A Byron Shire councillor wants the NSW government to intervene after the council voted to keep a remote Byron Bay beach optional of clothing. Councillor Paul Spooner said the decision to keep the clothing optional declaration at Tyagarah Beach showed the council was "not listening" to locals. Locals protested outside Byron Shire Council for the clothing optional declaration removed from Tyagarah Beach. Some locals say in the past few years the beach has been taken over by a "minority" who engage in lewd behaviour and should be shut down, while other locals believe the beach can be cleaned up to be enjoyed by everyone. Many locals want Tyagarah Beach's clothing-optional status removed, while others say work can be done to clean up behaviour on the beach. Credit: Danielle Smith.

North Belongil Beach Nude beach. Find on Google Maps. Byron Bay is a popular resort town on the far northern coast of New South Wales, within an hour's drive of the border with Queensland. The town is next to Cape Byron, a headland that is the most easterly point of mainland Australia. Going north from Cape Byron, there are a couple of adjacent beaches separated by small outcroppings next to the town of Byron Bay, then there is a long and continuous beach that extends northward more than 10 kilometers to the mouth of the Brunswick River.
We went for a few morning walks along the beach. The first walk went out from the northern end and A nice beach for the whole family including the pets.
