The Northern Rivers are located just south of the border with Queensland, and encompass towns such as Byron Bay, Tweed Heads and Ballina. The region is bounded by the Coral Sea to the East, and the Great Dividing Range to the West, this region is perfect for a longer getaway of 4-5 nights.
See the eclectic town of Byron Bay, experience the beach side elegance of Cabarita Beach, or head inland and see the natural wonders of the long-extinct Tweed Volcano and the Wollumbin National Park. Or simply relax at some of our favourite properties:
Located in the township of Cabarita Beach, this boutique property is a favourite of our Travel Manager Sarah.
Situated right on the beach, with each of its 21 rooms and suites being individually designed by interior designer Anna Spiro in her signature style, Halcyon House provides a relaxing, luxurious beach-side escape.
Enjoy a Halcyon beach picnic, wake up with yoga classes on the beach, or take some time for yourself in the Halcyon Spa - the choice is yours! Maybe you’d prefer to explore the area in an Audi A1 or on a bicycle provided by the property, or just sit back by the pool with a cocktail.
Paper Daisy is the on-site restaurant, providing an intimate fine dining experience. Order a la carte or arrange for the set menu if there is a group of 8 or more, and enjoy some of the best locally sourced cuisine paired with matching wines.
Elements of Byron
Set just outside Byron Bay right on the beach and surrounded by a rainforest, which gives the property a secluded feel while being close enough to walk into town.
The property boasts 193 private villas set across 50 acres overlooking ocean, forest, lake or pond, making you feel like you’re in your own private getaway. We recommend the Lagoon Edge Villa for even more privacy, featuring a split level design with an indoor living area, outdoor dining terrace and intimate water views.
Once settled in, head over to the central lagoon pool or the adults only heated pool with a swim-up bar. Azure Bar and Grill is the on-site restaurant with a menu composed of locally sourced cuisine served straight from the fire. There's also the Botanica Beach Club for drinks and nibbles with uninterrupted ocean views, exclusive for resort guests.
The Byron at Byron
Nestled in 45-acres of magical subtropical rainforest, Byron at Byron, a Crystalbrook Collection Resort, is a celebration of nature, responsible luxury and the local environment.
The resort is located just south of Byron Bay town, and features 91 beautifully styled and self-contained suites, offering intimate privacy throughout.
We recommend the Deluxe Spa suites, located in a private and secluded area of the resort and a short five-minute stroll to Tallow Beach through the rainforest. Each of these suites are adults only, featuring two rainforest enclosed balconies and unique artwork in each suite.
Relax by the pool or in the award winning day spa, take part in the daily morning yoga classes or enjoy the signature dining experience at The Restaurant, featuring a menu changing with the seasons and a matching wine list.
