Well, the Byron district of Swing On In represented at Canberräng on the week. These scallywags took it upon themselves to take a fabulous trip together and they danced, they learnt lots, they laughed til they cried and we had major FOMO.  We had been to Canberräng 10 years straight int he early days and after a hiatus through Covid I was pleased to see it back on again! What is it?
