DISCOVER OUR NEW 3 DAY TOUR: THE BRISBANE TO BYRON FOOD TRAIL




The Farm, Lighthouse,
Food & drink

Soak up the views from Australia’s most easterly point before visiting Byron Bay’s hottest food and drink spots.​

ITINERARY OVERVIEW

We’ll cruise down through the rolling green farmlands of the Tweed Valley towards the iconic northern New South Wales beach town of Byron Bay. After taking in the sweeping views from Cape Byron Lighthouse – keep your eyes peeled for migrating whales between June and October – you can opt to take a refreshing dip at nearby Wategos Beach, home to some of Australia’s priciest real estate.

Next up we’ll visit hip hilltop cafe Top Shop – a local institution – for a caffeine hit before we head to The Farm. This lush, working farm on the fringe of Byron is anchored by the lauded Three Blue Ducks restaurant, where we’ll tuck into an incredible lunch showcasing produce harvested just metres from our table. There’ll be plenty of time to take a stroll around the property to meet the Highland cows, purchase some homegrown sunflowers at the on-site florist, or perhaps grab an ice-cream at Baylato, before we head to Stone & Wood to sample the famed Byron Bay brewery’s multi-award-winning beers.

Still thirsty? Good, because before heading back, we’ll enjoy a tasting at one of Byron’s boutique distilleries. Set in a lush rainforest, Cape Byron Distillery specialises in gin (with whisky on the way), while Lord Byron Distillery produces rum, vodka, gin and more. Both venues also have sustainability stories as epic as their boozy offerings.

FREQUENTLY ASKED 
QUESTIONS

How long should I book in advance?

If booking for a tour on a weekend day, it is recommended that you book at least 2-3 weeks in advance. If booking on a weekday, at least two days in advance is recommended.

What’s the difference between public and private tours?

A private tour is a booking which is exclusively for your group which generally attracts a higher price. The whole van / bus and host is for your group without any other groups. 

A public tour is whereby different groups can book on the same day. A minimum number of 4 people must be met for a scheduled tour to depart.

How does the minimum for a scheduled departure work?

We require a minimum of 4 people booked for a confirmed scheduled tour departure. If 4 people are not booked, we will either try put you on another day where we are running the tour or give a full refund. 

Do you offer peak and off-peak pricing? 

Yes! Tours which run mid-week are cheaper to book than if booking for the weekend. Make sure to check the different pricing options by licking on the “Book Now” buttons above.

What’s the minimum group size for a  private tour? 

We can provide private tours for groups as small as two – however, as we’re sure you’d understand, groups of this size attract a significantly higher price per person. While our regular vehicles seat 11 people, we can accommodate groups of up to 40 with the use of larger buses. All private tours are by appointment, are subject to availability and must be enquired for in advance to ensure our preferred venues can accommodate our group.


What happens if venues on the tour are booked out for a function?

The itinerary is subject to availability and may be altered to differing times as well as alternative suppliers when booked out for functions or events. We will always communicate any changes to existing itineraries if they occur.

How do I secure a booking?

For groups of 8 or more, to secure a booking, you must pay a 50% deposit for a public tour booking. The balance is then due at least 7 days prior to departure. While for groups smaller than 8, a full payment is required to secure a booking.
