    Your Details

Barefoot at Broken Head is the only private house in the Byron Shire approved for wedding receptions. We host the most sophisticated beach weddings in Australia.


 The couple walk through bush track to a pristine surf beach with eucalypts crowded thick over the hills, waves rolling in from the point, and not a house in sight. At the end of the single stretch of sand the guests can see the most easterly point of Australia - the exceptional Byron Bay Lighthouse. After the wedding ceremony the guests walk a minute back to a simple wooden gate to reveal the minimal masterpiece that is Barefoot at Broken Head..


The huge central living pavilion opens up through accordion doors to the tropical garden and huge decks in which are set four other buildings, where the families and couples that are staying can have perfect privacy when they desire, and huge common areas when they would like to commune.


There are five luxury bedrooms and a separate kitchen and dining area overlooking the pools where you can watch the kids frolic in the 30cm deep reflection pool or dive deep into the 20m lap pool, both set in golden sandstone.


In the days before and after your reception have relatives or friends to stay, ride the bikes along the beach at low tide, or drive 10 minutes into town to enjoy Byron’s restaurants. With the sound of the sea from your bed and a world-class point break a minute from your room - this is the ultimate Australian beach house.
