Baby changing facilities in Byron welcomed by mums

With no public baby changing facilities in the Byron Bay CBD, taking your baby out for even a short period of time was frustrating for many mums.

So the ‘Young Mums’ group from Byron Youth Services decided to do something to change the situation and approached Byron Shire Council for help.

The council offered its support with a community grant to enable the installation and promotion of the new change table now installed in the toilets at Apex Park near the Byron Bay Surf Club.

The group was told that vandalism had prevented change table facilities being installed in the past in Byron Bay.

Young Byron Bay mum Eliza Brunell said the new public change table was very welcome.

“With no public change table in the CBD area it was a nightmare to have to change your child,” she said.

“You were forced to change your baby in the pram.”

 A free family fun day was held on Sunday to celebrate the installation of the change table.
