For so many reasons, the hinterland is undeniably one of our top picks as the ultimate Byron Bay wedding location. If hinterland serenity with magical views is what you have been searching for, then we have the perfect venue for you!

Nestled amongst the hills sits The Orchard Estate; a picturesque Byron Bay hinterland wedding venue that we absolutely adore! Situated just a short and convenient 30-minute drive from the heart of town, the journey to the Estate is impressive in itself; immediately sparking a sense of tranquillity as the bustling action of Byron’s eclectic town fades into the distance.

Set on a private and secluded 100-acre macadamia orchard, The Orchard Estate boasts expansive manicured grounds with mesmerising views of the Nightcap Mountain Range. Offering exclusive use of the property and a plethora of location options all framed by the most incredible lush backdrop; the location truly is something special.

On arrival, guests enter through the Estate’s long secluded driveway framed by the macadamia orchard, before being greeted with a welcome drink. Guests are then invited to a take a stroll over to the ceremony space, which could be one of two magical locations. Imagine saying ‘I do’ amongst the macadamia trees in the orchard or, on the hilltop overlooking the magnificent hinterland range! As the day flows, enjoy an afternoon of fabulous cocktails and canapés with your loved ones on the cocktail lawn while taking in the stunning panoramic views.

For your reception, the modern, architecturally purpose-built barn offers the ultimate blank canvas to bring your styling vision to life. With thoughtfully designed and stylish polished concrete floors, white walls, and dark framing, the different styling options are endless! The indoor space has a guest capacity of around 100 people and gives you the option to completely tailor your day right down to catering with two distinctive choices: a formal sit-down dinner or a more relaxed, canapé-style reception—both with ‘BYO’ alcohol!

Dreaming of dining under the stars? The Orchard Estate is one of the very few venues in the Byron Bay region to offer this incredibly special and sought after option. The amazing outdoor space lends itself to a spacious gravelled dining setting under twinkling fairy lights and the serenity of the region’s rolling hills as your backdrop. In the event of wet weather, the spacious barn acts as the perfect backup option (including your ceremony!) and not to mention the perfect dance floor! Therefore, you can feel relaxed knowing that your plan B is covered!

As sun set approaches, it’s the perfect time to enjoy a memorable moment alone together to reflect on the day that has just been. There is nothing quite like a golden sunset over the undulating hills, and luckily, you’ll have your photographer there with you to capture those precious just married portraits! When you re-join your loved ones for your reception, the dance floor will be heating up for celebrating and fun well into the night!
