Reminder to be beach safe while celebrating Splendour
AS BYRON gears up for a swell of festival goers ahead of this year's Splendour in the Grass, Surf Life Saving NSW is reminding people not to enter the water under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or to swim at an unpatrolled beach.
Byron Bay's Main Beach is currently the only patrolled beach in the area.
"It's a simple message we want to get across to everyone. Water, drugs and alcohol simply don't mix," Far North Coast emergency services coordinator, Jimmy Keough, said.
