The 4-Day Byron Bay Retreat

BlueGreen Sanctuary in Byron Bay

Where the sun’s first rays touch Australia is Byron Bay, famous for its iconic beaches and alternative lifestyle, and a hinterland made lush by volcanic soil twenty million years old. Here deep rainforests, stunning waterfalls, hamlets and farmlands share the hills and valleys and sparkling views of the Pacific.

Nestled in the hills twelve minutes outside Byron, the BlueGreen Sanctuary invokes this overflowing beauty into five acres of paradise. A sanctuary that imparts serenity with its sublime landscaping, rolling lawns, gazebo over the lake, terraces and nooks, swings in the rainforest and wild ducks on the lake.

The name itself drew inspiration from its surroundings: ‘blue’ from the huge sky, the distant mountains; and ‘green’ from the rainforest trees, the gentle sloping lawns, the macadamia and coffee plantations that cushion the boundaries.
