    I think that could be Wright Place not street. The cops wouldn't normally patrol a dead end street but there are druggies there. Many housing commission places there plus my Trannie chess playing friend. That Echo paper was helped set up by David Lovejoy. The Murdoch competition now is only online.

    For more information about Byron Bay events latest news etc I 'd suggest the excellent Echo NETDAILY local newspaper.
    It's the only credible media for the area. They also have an impressive archive of past and present criminal activity, and the police efforts to smash it. There are dozens of related articles.
    I will keep on posting them!

    Post to your heart's content. I had a beautiful dip while you were. You missed the big 80 person blue at Ballina after their grand final last week. I think there is more life at Byron than in Melbourne.

    ^There is more excitement between me and my neighbours that goes on down there.

    The big money men must have confidence in the town because the Beachie is having a big make over plus all my rich neighbours. I am becoming the poorest house on the street

    This thread is hilarious!

    I have to say though I agree with ER Byron Bay is absolutely saturated with drugs and violence.

    I used to go down there every weekend stay at belongil fields or somewhere in town and go out for the night life. I don't think I have ever seen more shady behaviour taking place in any other nightlife district in Australia. This from someone who lives on the Gold Coast and has gone out in every major capital city.....

    ^ that's funny because the word here is the schoolies that way inclined go to Gold Coast and the well behaved onces come to Byron. There have been a few drug busts over the years so someone must be buying it. The most violence I have seen anywhere was at Moree when a youngster.

    The filthy rich are still coming here spending $20m for homes as long as they keep that up I dont care about the rest much.

    The NSW crime statistics don't paint a particularly bad picture of Byron. Although it is number one among the LGAs for exactly the one non-violent crime you would expect it to be associated with

    I did not know that one. There was a funny kind of sexual offence about a year ago. A male cop was offended by a woman sunbaking nude amongst sand dunes miles form anywhere. So she was convicted, I was expecting protests but didn't notice any.

    I wasn't talking about schoolies i was referring to regular weekend goers.

    Its a well known hotspot for drugs and everything else. Could the crime rate also be related to the number of police and their stance on certain things? Drinking in public for example is not enforced any time I've been there. People drinking everywhere cops walk past.
