Win passes to the Byron Bay Writers Festival!

Byron Bay holds many family memories for Inside History magazine; Ben grew up just down the road in Lennox Head and often surfed Byron Bay's beaches as a teenager. His family were one of the foundation families in the Lennox Head area and Skennars Head, just to the south of Lennox, still carries the family name. There is a brilliant story of that land being lost by the family in a card game - one day we'll find out if it's true!

Along with the memories though, Byron Bay now holds one of this country's best writers festivals every August and it's nearly that time of year again! Inside History first became involved with the festival in 2011 and this year we're very excited to have our own sponsored event, Bringing history to life, on August 3 - click here to view the program and find out more!

To celebrate our involvement, we thought we'd have some fun - after all, Byron Bay is all about fun, whether you're a bookworm, foodie or surfie it's got it all. So, here you go, with the help of our friends at the Byron Bay Writers Festival, we're giving away two 3-day passes valued at $490.

That's right, nearly $500 worth - two 3-day passes!

So, how do you enter I hear you ask? Simply send us an email to hello[at], including the answer to the question:
