Australia’s most celebrated coastal town oozes Instagram glam. But Byron accommodation isn’t all chic boutiques and ostentatious Airbnbs. Seclusion seekers can skip the township and find solitude at these six tranquil farm stays near Byron Bay.
Heartwood Farm Byron Bay
Set in an early 20th-century cattle farm, this 100-acre hinterland property is a slice of rural paradise. Verdant rolling hills, cattle grazing pastures, and clear blue skies set an idyllic scene. Straddling the eastern edge lies the tranquil Nelson River, an idyllic spot to fish, swim, kayak, or kick back with a lazy picnic.
The property has a single two-bedroom cottage brimming with curated antiques and luxurious textiles. Get in quick because availability is sparse.
Forget Me Not Farm Cottages
Ideal for a romantic escape, this beautiful Bangalow property encapsulates hinterland charm. Four quaint cottages sit side-by-side, from romantic one-bedroom suites to spacious two-bedroom units.
High-end amenities and slick whitewashed décor add a luxe touch to the interiors. Step outside to watch cattle meander verdant pastures from your veranda overlooking the dam.
Rustic chic aficionados will adore this historic 1900 estate. Proprietress and artist Concetta Antico decorated her four distinct dwellings with recycled materials and oddball antiques. The result is a whimsical ensemble of enchanting standalone lodgings spread between 12 acres of pristine pastureland. The kids will also love saying hello to the adorable barnyard animals.
Located in Ewingsdale, the Byron townsite is a short drive away.
Cape Byron Farm
Perched on Hayters Hill, this gorgeous property boasts sweeping hinterland and ocean views. Pristine pastures, trickling streams, and heritage-listed rainforest comprise the scenic 300-acre expanse.
Founded as a dairy farm in 1881, the property now serves as cottage accommodation and a rainforest preservation zone. Its well-appointed one and two-bedroom units border lush gardens and offer stunning views.
Fig Tree Farm
Minutes from the townsite is one of Byron’s best boutique eco-resorts. With two on-site dwellings, this serene space affords utmost seclusion throughout your stay. Private gardens, polished interiors, and sweeping sea views guarantee an unforgettable getaway.
Love a good feed? Then fuel your adventures with a paddock-to-plate feast at the renowned Fig Tree restaurant.
