Prestigious Australian Real Estate Washed Away

ONE of Byron Bay's most prestigious rows of real estate is eroding away in king tides and massive swells that continued hammering the coast last night.

Belongil Beach has copped a hammering since the start of the wild weather last Thursday, with erosion exposing car wrecks, rocks and hundreds of sandbags.
