Have a laugh at the local heats for the Melbourne International Comedy Festival on Monday, 2 March. Billed as a night full of hilarious comedians you’ve never heard of, you can grab tickets online.
For the adventurous girls in your life, you could take them to the Women’s Adventure Film Tour, hitting Lismore Saturday, 7 March. The collection of award-winning short films celebrates women doing extraordinary things in the name of adventure. Yeah!
The next day, Sunday 8 March, you could float on up the Brunswick River and help the environment at the same time. The #RiverWarriors Brunswick River initiative is all about removing marine debris from this stunning waterway. With kayaks available for hire, and warm water this time of year, there’s no excuse not to get your paddle on!
And continuing the marine theme, the Ocean Film Festival hits Byron on Friday and Saturday, 13-14 March. Two hours of films designed to inspire you to explore, respect, enjoy, and protect our oceans.
Roller Derby more your style? Checking out the Northern Rivers Roller Revolt could be a hoot over the weekend of Saturday and Sunday, 14-15 March. Food trucks on site too.
For a bit of Carnivale, Byron style, put 21 March in your diary for CarnaByron. With a street parade and a bid ol’ party at the Beach Hotel, this will be a melting pot of culture, music, dance and fun. And this year’s event will support the Be Happy Music Club, a not-for-profit that works hard to bring music to kids living with a disability, promote social inclusion, musical ability, self-expression and enjoyment. Sounds great!
Perfect for any day of the month, definitely take a drive into the Hinterland to visit Minyon Falls. After what seemed like months of barely a trickle, this stunning waterfall is heaving again and it is extraordinary. Make a day of it and do one of the excellent walks in the Nightcap National Park. We can even delivery a picnic pack to you to fuel your day!
