Stephen and Belle always had a thing for Byron Bay. They travelled here every few months for a weekend away from their hometown of Toowoomba in Queensland.
One day, it seemed to make sense to move there. As luck would have it, the very next day the optometry practice in Byron advertised for a full-time optometrist to start immediately. Another fun trip to Byron was had and Steve got the job.
“Let’s give it a year!”, they said.
20 years later, and here they still are! In 2007, Stephen bought the business from Chris Doe, Belle has found out that she is related to some old locals and so the Bradys are definitely feeling like part of the furniture in the wonderful Byron Shire.
