About Byron Greens
Around the North Coast there are many vibrant environment groups, human rights groups and social justice groups. The Greens, as the third force in Australian politics, embrace and support progressive forces within society.
Byron Greens has a strong presence in the NSW Greens scene. We have a lot of input into Greens policies and healthy representation on state working groups and committees. Our members are also active within the Australian Greens. Wherever members’ interests lie, whether at local, state or federal level, or indeed at an international level, we have the means to give them a meaningful involvement in the political process.

Byron Shire Councillors
I’ve been a member of Byron Greens for 25 years, 6 of those as a Byron councillor. My priorities are environmental protection and respect and support for our community. I have decades of experience as a Civil Engineer and I understand the complexity of planning issues. As a councillor I will represent our wonderful shire with care & consideration.
I was Deputy Mayor on the previous Council. I continue to be our Deputy Mayor and will be focused on the challenges that Byron Shire is facing. There are key issues we must resolve such as the housing crisis, climate change and infrastructure management. I’m committed to Council supporting and advocating for First Nations rights.
Richmond Federal Candidate 2022
Much loved local personality, social provocateur and comedian Mandy Nolan stepped up to run as our candidate for the federal division of Richmond in the May 2022 election. She has an amazing vision for a better Australia, a passion for social justice and environmental responsibility. She did really well, dramatically reduced the gap between The Greens and the ALP, but sadly didn’t quite get over the line.
We have not yet preselected our 2025 candidate but whoever it is will have an even better chance to get to Canberra and really shake things up.
