It should go without saying that you can find plenty of quirky options for things to do in the Northern Rivers this December!

There’s something about this place that creates the right environment for everything from sacred cacao ceremonies (and no, I’m not really sure what that involves) to pop-up parties, restaurants and shops. Here’s some ideas that might tickle your fancy this month!

  • Catch The Longevity Film at Byron Community Centre on 10 December. This documentary delves into ageing and living well by documenting the longest lived, healthiest & happiest cultures from around the world. For those like me who nerd out on food and nutrition!
  • Get your running shoes on for the Deadly Fun Run Series at Brunswick Heads on 14 December. The 3km and 5km runs are free and open to both Indigneous and non-Indigenous people.
  • Take in some tunes or some films at Billinudgel’s pub. With various dates on offer, this pub bills itself as one of the last good ol’ country pubs, but that’s really underselling what they offer.
  • Enjoy something more cultured with Harmonies on the Hill on 11 December. Sounds lovely!
  • Better still, exercise your own vocal chords at the Shire Choir’s Christmas Special on 5 December. With 150 other’s belting out some tunes, chances are no one will know or care if you’re a little off key!

And while it is wrong to assume, I’ve guessed that events like the Falls Festival, Tropical Fruits and First Sun are already on the radar for those to whom each appeals! We have pulled together information on a load of great Christmas and New Year options for the month, and you can find a run down on them over on our other post.

Whatever you do this Christmas, just make sure you enjoy real food, from real people at real places while you’re doing it.
