Reminiscing with Byron Bay’s Watego clan
BYRON Bay Historical Society will hold its first History Reminiscing session of the year at 10.30am on Monday at the Byron Bay Services Club.
This month’s topic is the History of the Watego Family and stories of Wategos beach in the early days.
Members of the Watego family will be on hand to take us down memory lane and walk us along the beautiful beach and fill in the gaps of the history of one of the most iconic beach locations in Australia.
“Oh, to be young again,” said Byron Bay Historical Society president Donald Maughan.
“Come along and share your memories and hear the stories of the good old days at Wategos – romancing, surfing, picnicking or just enjoying the sun set over the Bay with Mount Warning and Chinnie in the background,” Mr Maughan said.
For more information call Mr Maughan on 66854314.
One of The Northern Star’s sister papers, the Byron Shire News, will run another “Byron Bay – A Walk in Time” feature in the first half this year.
