Escape to the great outdoors of wilderness resorts and retreats in the Byron Bay, Kyogle, Lismore, Nimbin, Casino, Tabulum, Tweed Heads, NSW and Gold Coast hinterland, Scenic Rim region of QLD, Australia.
If you want to get away to Australia's backcountry and countryside, here are the perfect places to visit, without getting beyond the black stump and into the outback.
Often located adjacent to national parks and reserves, most properties will usually be more than an hours' drive from a larger town or village, usually accessible via unsealed gravel roads through forest or picturesque agricultural land.
As a result, you'll probably be out of mobile phone range, and internet coverage may be limited. It also makes these properties ideal for a "digital detox", or a break where you're unplugged from technology and work.
Accomodation ranges from luxury resorts in the rainforest, to 4WD parks and camp grounds, or working farms offering refurbished workers cottage accommodation and camping options. Nature based activities like canoeing, bushwalking, birdwatching or horse back riding maybe available on-site.
Tariff is indicative only (per night/off peak) unless otherwise shown.
