Space for community organisations

We provide free, peppercorn and subsidised space to community organisations at a value of $100K per year. The Byron Theatre, meeting rooms, Clarkes Kitchen and Byron Community Cabin are all utilised for community purposes.

In turn, these local groups offer services, activities and opportunities for connection and support, contributing to the social and cultural wellbeing of the community.
