The Arakwal called this meeting place ‘Cavvanbah‘, which was the name of the settlement until 1894 when it became Byron Bay. Captain Cook originally named Cape Byron after Admiral Byron, not after his nephew the poet Lord Byron.
Byron Bay enjoys a subtropical climate with hot, wet summers and mild, dry winters. It’s mild, temperate climate makes it a perfect joint to hang out for most of the year.
We’ve been getting some decent thunderstorms at night and there’s been plenty of rain, lifting some water restrictions from level 4 to 2 (e.g. Mullumbimby). That’s great news!
Surfwise, there’s waves today as the northerlies retreated. Tallows and Broken all had a head high wobbly wave – suffering from a bit of morning sickness and high tide.
