Queensland has lost a $2 million-a-year tourism event to New South Wales where nude bathing is legal and their police do not arrest nudists for wilful exposure.
The annual Nude Olympics, which pulls more than 600 people a year to Noosa’s Alexandria Bay after the first event 40 years ago, has been cancelled.
The event, organised by the Australian Naturists Federation, will be held this March at Byron Bay, either at its legal Tyagarah nude beach or the north Belongil Beach.
Both beaches are on the northern coastline of Byron Bay.
Queensland is the only state that does not allow its councils to vote and choose “clothing-optional” beaches.
Negotiations have begun with Byron Shire Council to hold the 2017 Nude Olympics at Belongil Beach.
