Environment & Resilience

Discover why Byron Shire's environment and coastline is renowned for its natural beauty, being one of the richest and most diverse regions for native plants and animals in Australia.

Our coast includes coastal waters, rocky and sandy shorelines, dunes, and coastal lakes. It is shaped by wind, waves, tides, and currents, which can result in beach erosion and inundation of coastal land.

Find out how we plan and manage these environmental hazards and others such as litter, illegal dumping and pollution.
