Main Arm Rural Residents Association

MARRA - Main Arm Rural Residents Association

Bandjalung country, in the western hills of the Byron Shire. A vibrant, diverse and evolving rural community. Birthplace of alternative / counter culture in the 1970’s. We acknowledge and pay respect to First Nations people. They are the traditional owners and ongoing custodians of this land.
