For over thirty-five years the Old Arts Factory in Byron Bay has been home to a rich history of live music. Today it’s also the home of the Byron Bay Brewery. It’s here that they experiment with refreshing new beer styles against a background of music performed by artists from all over the world. From Dragonfruit Sours and Coffee Porters to easy drinking lagers that are perfect for good times with friends, their range of beers and collabs are always inspired by the eclectic, creative spirit of their home, Byron Bay.

Established in Byron Bay in 1999, Fusion Health was born out of co-founder Paul Keogh’s experience formulating Chinese and Western herbal extracts.
Paul consistently observed that incorporating Chinese herbal extracts into his formulas provided significantly greater therapeutic and health benefits than formulating with Western herbal extracts alone.
Inspired by these results and by the accumulated wisdom inherent in a system of medicine that’s been practised for more than 2000 years, Paul became passionate about making the power of Chinese medicine more accessible to Australians and teamed up with natural health industry veteran Geoff Teasel to do so.
YETI was born out of frustration and moulded by experience.
Whether you’re taking it off the map or all the way to your backyard, every YETI product is built for the wild. Everything they make is inspired by necessity. YETI can go wherever you go and make it back for another adventure. MORE HERE

The RVCA name (pronounced: REW-KA) was developed first and foremost out of the “V” and “A” = which symbolizes the balance of opposites and how they coexist: nature x industrialization, woman x man, past x presdent…Future. Today. Tomorrow. Life.
The RVCA artist network program, commonly referred to as the ANP, is an ongoing program which aims to showcase the talent of accomplished as well as unknown artists who inspire our generation and push the boundaries of creativity; providing something of substance and culture. MORE HERE
In 1947, a small general store was built just outside the humble Byron Bay township on Bangalow Road. Known by the locals as Walls Store, it sold groceries and general goods.
When current owners Ben Gordon and Phil Taylor saw that there was an opportunity to do something in this iconic building they did not hesitate. In mid 2017 the project was started and on December 9th 2017 the doors were officially opened! It’s been nothing but good times ever since. In 2020 one of the main focuses is on reducing waste and their overall impact on the environment!! And…they are now a Plant-based menu!
Established in 1985, Byron Signworks has been supplying signs to businesses and residents of the Byron Bay area for over 30 years.
From small signs to full shop packages, vehicle and window graphics, banners and business cards, they have got all your sign and print needs covered.
Byron sign works are always looking for ways to minimise their footprint on the environment and conscious of this throughout their entire business.
This water based ink system not only provides a healthier production environment for the team but it also means they are minimising harmful VOC’s in the end product.
As a result they can produce graphics with a GREENGUARD certification to display in their final products.
With the sign industry largely centered around PVC plastics they help educate their clients on options to minimise the cost to our planet and encourage them to:
– Design signs that can be easily changed or updated to eliminate single use products.
– Update or modify existing signage where possible.
– Use Recycled sign materials or up cycle other materials to create new signs.

At Patagonia, they appreciate that all life on earth is under threat of extinction. They aim to use the resources they have—their business, their investments, their voice and their imaginations—to do something about it.
Patagonia grew out of a small company that made tools for climbers. Alpinism remains at the heart of a worldwide business that still makes clothes for climbing—as well as for skiing, snowboarding, surfing, fly fishing, mountain biking and trail running. These are silent sports. None require an engine; rarely do they deliver the cheers of a crowd. In each, reward comes in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection with nature. MORE HERE
