The experience of arriving at the Fig Tree Restaurant in Byron Bay is sure to leave a lasting memory. The feelings that run through you as you first take in the majestic Fig Tree up close, then the lighthouse view and beyond are hard to describe.
They say you have to visit a place to truly feel its soul and genuinely know that it is the place for you. The Fig Tree is certainly a place that touches a lot of people’s hearts – particularly when they walk around the corner of the Farmhouse to behold such breathtaking views.
If that hasn’t grabbed you, the Fig Tree family are ready to add a warmth beyond any other with their heartfelt welcome and humble appreciation of you coming into their home.
It exists as an award-winning restaurant, established in 1981 on 8 acres with a citrus orchard and thriving vegetable garden from which much of the menu’s produce is derived. There is a strong ethos of garden to plate. If the produce cannot be grown on-site, it is sourced from the abundance of local farms across the fertile Byron region.
Whilst enjoying the different aspects, you can find yourself lounging on the daybeds under the grapevine canopy or taking a stroll through the olive grove where a Mediterranean charm comes to life.
Picture your day unfolding with a ceremony under the magnificent 150-year-old, jaw-dropping Moreton Bay fig tree – one of the pinnacle features of the entire property. Guests are then invited down to the new poolside space for an afternoon of roaming canapés and cocktails before dining above in the elegantly converted and elevated farm-house – which by the way, doesn’t skip out on any of the marvellous views!
For accommodation, you have a choice of two boutique cottages on-site. Either the Dairy (sleeps 6), underneath the ancient Fig Tree, or Sunrise (sleeps 8) overlooking the gardens which as the name suggests, takes in the incredible sunrises over Cape Byron.
The Venue Owner has thought about the entire wedding experience so it’s tacitly orchestrated, thoughtfully chosen and flawlessly executed. One step onto the grounds and most people fall in love immediately.
