Author Peter Duke has resided in Byron Shire since 1998. Originally from Sydney, Peter has a background in education and sales. Since his move to Byron Bay, and following several year’s research, he curated the Byron Bay Historical Photograph Exhibition at the Byron Bay Surf Life Saving Club, 2005.
In December 2010 Peter published his first book, ‘Byron Bay the History, Beauty and Spirit’, a beautiful hard cover coffee table book. The book was quickly embraced by the local community and became Byron Bay’s #1 best-selling book. In 2015 when the book ‘sold-out’, new downloadable formats were made available, and a second print run of ‘Byron Bay the History Beauty and Spirit’ arrived at Byron Bay December, 2016.
Peter has been working on his second book, a spiritual travel-log since 2011. Release date, Autumn 2021.
