Thinking about taking a group to the peace and love capital of Australia? Here are our top 8 picks on what you should include in your Byron itinerary.
Book a Kombi transfer
What’s more ‘Byron’ than being ushered away from the airport in a vintage Kombi van? Family-owned Forever Kombis offers a range of hire packages to suit your corporate group. The vehicles have been lovingly restored and come in colours such as classic cream, chrome and white; sea blue and romantic red.
Take in the views at Fig Tree Restaurant
Panoramic seaviews, rolling green hills and beautiful gardens – the views at Fig Tree Restaurant are amongst the best in the region. Arrange a sit down dinner beneath the stars or an intimate get together in the restaurant – a converted farmhouse – to sample the very best produce that Byron has to offer.
Book a scenic flight with Rotorwing Helicopter Services
Is there anything cooler than a helicopter transfer? We didn’t think so. Rotorwing Helicopter Services, a family owned and operated business, offers a range of options for corporate clients including scenic flights over the Hinterlands and delicious lunchtime packages.
Cape Byron Distillery gin tasting
From the family that brought you delicious Brookfarm Muesli comes a brand new uniquely Byron gin. You heard right – gin. Brookie’s Gin is the brainchild of Eddie Brook, the son of the health-food brand Brookfarm. The brand new distillery is just a year old and is situated on the same piece of land that is also occupied by the family’s massive macadamia plantation. The botanically-infused gin is distilled using the farm’s very own native ingredients. Tours and private tastings at the distillery are available by appointment only.
Harvest Newrybar is a local institution. Located in the historic village of Newrybar in the Byron Hinterland, the establishment showcases fresh local produce sourced from the region’s best artisan producers and the restaurant’s very own gardens. Soak up the country charm while tucking into a meal made from both organic and foraged ingredients. Both private dining spaces and function rooms are available.
Corporate Retreat at Newrybar Downs
For an intimate corporate retreat, a visit to Newrybar Downs is a must-do. The boutique lodging is nestled at the end of a tree-lined drive and is situated in close proximity of Harvest Café , the Byron Bay lighthouse, beaches, restaurants and spas. The five bedroom property offers five tastefully-decorated bedrooms, two dining areas, two living rooms, a Bowling Green, swimming pool and relaxed cabana.
Let’s Go Surfing surf lessons
Whether you’re an experience surfer or a straight-up beginner, a group surf lesson with Lets Go Surfing comes highly recommended. Sessions are tailored to the corporate group’s specific level, with an emphasis on team building.
The Farm Byron Bay
Set on 80 acres, The Farm Byron Bay offers a unique paddock to plate experience for those not afraid to get their hands a little dirty. Embark on a behind-the-scenes tour of the farm and gain firsthand knowledge of the destination’s sustainable and ethical farming practices, and get up close and personal with the animals that call the farm home. Later, make sure you head to Three Blue Ducks Restaurant for a full-flavoured meal packed with nutrients. Exclusive hire of the restaurant is available for large groups, as well as a 12 metre Argentinean barbeque area for those looking for something a little different.
