Byron Haven

Periodically we’ll feature one of our properties here to let our readers know about some great gay friendly places to stay:

These cabins are ideal for people who desire a relaxing experience whilst close to the town and beach.

These one bedroom cabins sleep up to two people and provide an ultimate getaway accommodation with views of calming greenery in a very quiet neighbourhood. Due to our convenient location it is a 3 minute walk to the beach and a 7 minute walk into town.

The rooms are spacious and showcase a full ensuite that includes a personal bathroom, a queen sized bed, polished timber flooring, newly fitted furniture and large verandahs. In addition, Ceiling fans compliment the cabin to assist in keeping you cool and comfortable on those hot summer nights. The Belongil creek reserve runs at the rear of the property making it a very quiet place to stay.

  • Relax on the beach & meet Byron Bay’s colourful characters
  • Hang out and relax at the colourful weekend markets & shop till you drop in local boutiques and shops

Byron Bay SurfersByron Bay is one of the best loved areas on the gay tourist trail in Australia – and with good reason.

Situated on the sub-tropical New South Wales north coast, Byron is known for its relaxed, easy-going lifestyle and almost perfect climate.

Beautiful beaches, unspoilt rainforest and magnificent scenery make the Byron region a must. But there is more.

Over the last few decades, thousands of gay men and lesbians have left the cities looking for a better lifestyle – and landed up right here!

Kayak in Byron BayNot only is Byron Australia’s most gay-friendly regional area, it actually has the highest per capita gay population in the country. So say g’day to this very friendly part of the world, and you may make a few new gay friends as well.

At Kings Beach (below – they should rename it queens’ beach) you will walk down to the powder-white sand through magnificent littoral rainforest.

King's Beach, Byron BayPark your towel under a Pandanus palm – they’re nature’s umbrellas – and saunter into the surf. Even in winter the water is wonderfully warm.

Belongil Beach is Byron’s official nudist beach: you can shimmy out of your swimwear and stroll the sand for miles in either direction, encountering nothing but friendly smiles.

Not far from Belongil are the Tyagarah tea-tree lakes. As any Aussie will tell you, Australian tea-tree is one of nature’s wonders. Its medicinal properties are legend.

At Tyagarah, the tea-trees grow close to the lakes’ edges, dropping their leaves into the water, turning it into a natural (and free) herbal spa. Strip off, take a plunge and see how smooth your skin feels afterwards.

Byron Bay - Revelwood Rainforest RetreatRevelwood Rainforest Retreat is Byron’s only exclusively gay getaway. The B&B’s owners, Chris and Wayne, will go out of their way to ensure you have a great time – whether it’s whipping up a fabulous cooked breakfast, making sure you have the perfect pillow, pointing you in the right direction – or just letting you do your thing. Revelwood is surrounded by rainforest and beautiful Byron Creek, and is clothing-optional over much of its 15 acres. Yet its close proximity to the picturesque village of Bangalow puts you in easy reach of some of the region’s best restaurants, cafes and shopping.

You’d be crazy not to add Byron to your Aussie itinerary. Check out Revelwood’s website at or give the guys a call on +61 2 6687 2614.
