Over the last 2 years calling the Byron Bay Hinterland region home, we’ve been lucky to spend time at some of its best accommodation options. We personally love staying in the hinterland area surrounding Byron Bay. You avoid the holiday crowds, yet only a short drive to everything Byron has to offer and you get a lot more privacy. Not to mention it has the best options for unique stays.
Here’s our tried and tested list with the Best Byron Hinterland accommodation options for your next escape in no particular order.
Our top 6 Byron Bay Hinterland Stays
1. Temple Farmhouse
First up on our list of Byron Bay hinterland accommodation is Temple Farmhouse, this ultra private escape in the Byron hinterland is the perfect family or group escape sleeping up to 9 Guests. The best part are the iconic outdoor baths but we also loved the panoramic hinterland views and the huge pool! You can read more on our stay at Temple Farmhouse here.

3. Two Acres Home
Located in the tiny town of Clunes about 20 minutes into the lush hills behind Byron. This beautiful stay transported us to Tulum with its tropical surroundings. We spent most of our time enjoying the pool area and the cabana but we also loved the fire pit area with its palms backdrop. Sleeps up to 7 guests. Find out more about our Two Acres Home stay here.

This little secret spot on the hills above Mullumbimby was one of our favourite stays recently. Made completely from sustainable Hempcrete. Hemp Villa sleeps 2 people and is the perfect spot for a romantic wind down weekend. The best part was breakfast out on the balcony and the alfresco bathtub with the most soothing views.
Tip: Pop down the road to chilled out town of Mullumbimby, explore around town with its great cafes, boutiques and restaurant options. Don’t miss the Mullum farmers markets on Friday morning easily one of the best!
