The Byron Bay Australia Day Paddle 2016 is Cancelled:
Unfortunately the community-fundraising Australia Day Paddle from Wategos to the Byron Bay Surf Club will not be held this year. Spiralling costs including insurances and administrative obstacles resulted in the decision to cancel this popular event.
The Australia Day BBQ organised by the Byron Bay Rotary Club will still go ahead at the Byron Bay Surf Club.
The organisers of the Paddle would like to thank the long term supporters, volunteers, and participants in the event, including the event’s generous sponsors:
The Beach Hotel, Brookfarm, Byron Bay Property Sales, Danny Wills Quiksilver Surf Store, In The Pink, Maddog Surfboards, Legend Pizzas, Style Surf School, Coopers, Amore Coffee, and the Byron Bay RSL.
Along with Byron Shire Council, Cape Byron Headland Trust, Byron Hire, Smith Optics, Frontline Office Supplies, PMD Screenprints and the Byron Bay SLSC & Nippers.
Hopefully the spirit of the event will continue and there will be a bigger paddle in 2017, raising funds for local charities.
