Beyond its beautiful beaches and big rolling breaks, Byron Bay is a paradise for urban hippy types. Boasting brunch-centric cafes, farm-to-table restaurants and sustainable luxury hotels, this carefree bohemian playground attracts trendsetters from all over the east coast.
So it’s no surprise to see a slew of chic boutique shops springing up to meet demand.
If you’re longing to add a dash of much-needed retail therapy to your Byron Bay holiday, check out the following four boutiques. From seasonal fashion to adorable homewares and bric-a-brac knick-knacks, you’re bound to find something you’ll love.
Spell & The Gypsy Collective
The brainchild of Byron sisters, Lizzy and Isabella, this modern label does fabulous feminine designs. Coastal wardrobes across Australia house their wares, spanning everyday essentials to vibrant beachwear and festival-friendly frocks.
The stunning flagship store is a must-stop on any Byron shopping spree. Chatty sales staff know the merchandise inside out and will readily recommend the perfect piece to complement your style.
St. Agni Byron Bay Boutique
Husband and wife dream team Laura and Matt Fells founded this eco-friendly outlet. St. Agni focuses on natural fabrics like linen and vegan leather. The duo is best known for their legendary hand-woven footwear range, spanning slip-on loafers to Toscano heels and glistening knee-high boots.
This industrial-chic Byron boutique is a hit with trendy thirty-somethings seeking seasonal wares. While you won’t score any rock-bottom bargains, the joint is worth the splurge.
This artisanal emporium spans the full design spectrum. Expect anything from homewares to jewellery and boutique fashion. All handcrafted works come from local artisans, who only use sustainably-sourced materials. To make you feel even more righteous about your purchase, 100% of the profits go towards Byron’s homeless community.
What’s on offer? Expect an eclectic collection of bold dresses, stylish felt hats, jewellery, and rustic pottery. Sign-up for their co-working space if you’d like to extend your Byron Bay holiday with a remote work foray.
The Farm Byron Bay
Any list of boutique shops in Byron Bay wouldn’t be complete without this truly iconic venue. Set on a lush working farm 15 minutes west of town, The Farm houses a plethora of hip microbusinesses. You won’t find any cute sundresses or designer furnishings here, but rather an earthy ensemble of all-natural organic goodies.
Green thumbs should hit Wormticklers for chemical-free seedlings or companion plants in biodegradable pots. If you’re short on flowers, Poppy & Fern do fresh field-to-vase bouquets and epic floral arrangements. Crush your hunger at the in-house bakery, ice creamery, or the paddock-to-plate Three Blue Ducks Restaurant. All ingredients come fresh from the outlying fields.
