Steeped in history

More than 100 years old, the Old Church is steeped in history and is stunningly preserved.

Located in historic Newrybar in the Byron Bay Hinterland, the Old Church was built in 1911 and promises to take guests on a journey back in time.

This beautiful and unique accommodation showcases classic church architecture, with antique arched doors and stained glass lancet windows, polished timber throughout, original church pews and huge, lofty high ceilings, with pressed metal features.


The main living space retains the church layout – open, spacious and light-filled – with exquisite antique furnishings, luxury Italian leather lounges and a big, old, beautiful timber 12-seat dining table, ideal for a lengthy ladies lunch, a formal, fancy dinner or a blended-family meal.

A cosy and comfortable queen room adjoins the main church living space, with a ramp for disabled access. Further catering for people with a disability, the Old Church features a disabled access bathroom including a toilet and shower.


A huge, fully equipped galley kitchen features extensive cupboard storage, bench space and a large stainless oven and cooktop perfect for entertaining and feeding a crowd.

Venture upstairs to the traditional church mezzanine level and be swept into two dream attic bedrooms, with sun-drenched windows bordered by architecturally designed A-frame ceilings.


Step out onto the upstairs balcony and discover separate studio accommodation.

The interior of the studio carries through the church theme from the main residence, with polished timber floorboards and sloped ceilings.

With one queen bed, a couch and four singles and an ensuite to be added, the Old Church studio can effortlessly house an additional family or group.

A beautiful, spiral staircase will take you downstairs into a second spacious living area complete with a ping-pong table for hours of enjoyment.


Outside you will find gorgeous landscaped gardens and a private, one-of-a-kind, refurbished gypsy wagon housing within it a double bed, bar fridge and sink, all encased in curved, decorative timber with ornately patterned, timber-framed windows.

Spoil yourself and experience the beauty of those endless Byron Bay evenings enjoying the outdoor dining suite and BBQ facilities.

Take a soak in the 5-seat outdoor heated hot tub, while taking in the view of the neighbouring macadamia plantation.
