Malibu kicks in for beach upgrade

THE Byron Bay Malibu Club has a long and proud connection with Wategos Beach.

It’s the club’s headquarters and venue for monthly contests and the annual malibu classic.

Over recent years, the club has donated more than $20,000 to the Cape Byron Trust and National Parks and Wildlife Service.

The money has gone towards construction of public barbecues and steps at the eastern end of the beach.

Now, the club is contributing to works which will see the picnic area upgraded and a new footpath which will stretch along a section of the Marine Parade beachfront.

Work on the project started last week and is scheduled to be completed in two weeks.

It’s expected Byron Council will complete the footpath along the whole length of Marine Parade.
