Say Namaste to the Bay on this relaxing, food-filled stay

Head to the hinterland on this four-day Intrepid Retreats: Urban List Editor’s Pick experience.

You’ll have a homestead as your memorable homebase to return to, allowing you to stretch out and relax as you look over the sprawling hinterland.

Why you'll love this trip

  • Urban List editors say: "Get a behind the scenes tour at Byron Bay’s award-winning distillery before partaking in a special cocktail masterclass where you’ll source ingredients for your tipple straight from the family farm."

  • Reconnect with your body during morning yoga sessions, and with nature on walks in the hinterland rainforest and along the bay beaches.

  • Enjoy a picnic lunch of local produce at a working B-Corp farm, supporting a local business that works to have a positive impact on their community.

  • Experience a delicious dinner at a not-for-profit, community driven restaurant, which supports a project to rehabilitate and reforest degraded areas of the Byron Shire.

Is this trip right for you?

  • This trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.

  • Please ensure you consult your local government’s advice regarding domestic travel prior to booking this trip.

Itinerary

Welcome to your Byron Bay getaway. From 3 pm today you can check in to your accommodation, a homestead set on 85 acres northwest of Byron. This former farmworker lodging has been reimagined as a set of private studios that overlook sprawling grounds across a large north facing deck. Take some time to look around the property, which has an impressive repurposed shed that’s now a communal kitchen, dining, social room and outdoor area. After you’ve settled in, there will be a welcome meeting at 4 pm where your leader gives an overview of the upcoming itinerary and offers some insights into the surrounding area. After the meeting there will be an optional yoga session to relax and unwind after your journey here. Alternatively, you can take one of the bushwalks in the surrounding rainforest on the property. Tonight, at a not-for-profit restaurant you’ll enjoy a dinner that’s not only delicious, but also supports a project to rehabilitate and reforest degraded areas of the Byron Shire.

Special Information
Your accommodation includes seven private studio rooms (plus five bathrooms) that each lead out to an enormous 200 square metre north-facing deck.
This morning, wake up with a sun salutation if you join an included yoga and meditation session before breakfast at the homestead. Whether you're an absolute beginner or seasoned practitioner, worry not, the yoga and meditation sessions are suitable for all levels.This should invigorate you for a bushwalk in the rainforest of a national park close to the property. Later, head to coast and the pretty surf town of Byron Bay, which has actively avoided the overdevelopment seen elsewhere along the coast. Take your pick of one of the many cafes for lunch. Then continue the fun at a nearby venue with a cocktail masterclass. The artisanal spirits here are distilled from ingredients sourced directly from the family farm and other local growers. The rest of the afternoon and evening is free for you to explore the town. Walk along the beaches, head to the iconic Cape Byron lighthouse, and maybe choose from one of the many delicious dinner options on offer in town.

Special Information
Your transport will leave Byron town at approximately 9:30 pm the evening to return you to the homestead.
There are few better ways to ready the mind and body for the day than yoga, so maybe choose to join in again with this morning’s included session. Enjoy breakfast at the homestead as you look over the grounds, then head out to visit a nearby market. Here you’ll learn more about the kinds of produce you’ve enjoyed over the last couple days and maybe meet and chat with some of the local farmers. In the early afternoon, make your way to a working farm that hosts a collection of micro businesses and is, like Intrepid, a B-Corp – a company concerned for their communities and the environment. Enjoy a picnic lunch on the farm, making the most of fresh local produce. You’ll have the rest of the afternoon free to enjoy the homestead and a memorable final meal tonight.
