Spas, Bars and Guitars - What's happening in and around Cape Byron Retreat in Winter


Winter in Byron can be an awesome time to spend a few days and nights relaxing, unwinding and soaking up the beautiful scenery. The weather is still warm, there are not as many people and there are plenty of things to see and do. Best of all, the whales are here!! Over these months we have excellent deals which make a mid-year break both affordable and desirable.

If you book with us direct and spend 2 or more nights you will not only get an exceptional price, you will also receive an arrival bottle of wine and a cheese and seasonal fruit platter. These could be enjoyed on the deck watching the sunset or sitting around the log fire in the evening. You would wake up on your first morning to a full English breakfast.

What’s new? We have recently added 2 outdoor spas and they have become a favourite with our guests. Sit back in your warm spa under the stars or watching the sun set over the mountains. It's a real treat.
