Micro Weddings and Elopements
THE FIGS BYRON is the perfect venue for your dream wedding!
Set in an idyllic private garden and rural oasis in the heart of the beautiful Byron Shire with stunning panoramic views from the Nightcap Ranges, to the iconic Mount Warning and Mount Chincogan, all the way to the Pacific Ocean at Brunswick Heads. The property features expansive and spectacular subtropical gardens, highlighted by four magnificent 350 year old Moreton Bay fig trees and a myriad of rare and exotic palms, flowering trees and shrubs.
The property provides multiple options for your wedding ceremony, a beautiful reception area, and the opportunity for outdoor dining under the fig trees. It is a photographer's delight with its array of fabulous backdrops for beautiful wedding photos.
On site amenities include an 11 meter diameter natural pole pavilion with attached 54m2 hall; a lovely grassed reception site surrounded by gardens, both with views from the mountains to the sea; 15 meter swimming pool and pool house with bar and BBQ; and high quality accommodation for up to 12 in deluxe apartments.
The property also boasts more than 500 meters of pathways intertwining through the gardens, much of it wheelchair accessible, as well as more than 60 different varieties of organic fruit and nut trees in the surrounding gardens and orchards, producing wonderful succulent fruit for most of the year. Our resident flock of Wiltshire Horned Sheep provide a finishing touch to this beautiful and unique rural setting.
THE FIGS BYRON is the perfect wedding venue where you and your most intimate guests can enjoy the considerable benefits of this beautiful setting for as long as you like and at your own pace. With easy access to most of the 10-acre property and plentiful onsite accommodation available for visiting family and guests, you can just imagine the relaxed nature of the morning-after brunch to talk about the fun of the wedding day and to wind down after your special day. And to top it off, the central location of the property allows you to use THE FIGS BYRON as the focal point for all your fun activities in Byron Bay, the charming towns in the Byron Shire and the Byron hinterland.

Ceremony Sites - We have a number of potential ceremony sites including our beautiful pavilion with fabulous panoramic views from the mountain to the sea, intimate and exotic garden settings, or under the majestic presence of our wonderful 350 year old fig trees. We would be happy to work with you to select the ceremony site that meets your personal desires.
Pavilion – 11 metre diameter octagonal building with drop down sides and 54m2 attached hall. This beautiful building features all natural pole construction with a spotted gum ceiling and floor in the adjoining hall. The octagonal building provides an open air but weather protected location for a ceremony for up to 130 guests and/or reception for up to 70 guests seated at tables, or it can be used as a dance floor. The gazebo has uninterrupted panoramic views from the mountains to the sea and is set in the middle of some of our beautiful gardens, surrounded by a magnificent grove of frangipani trees and tropical heliconias.
Marquee / Tipi site – Adjacent to the pavilion is a grassed and level site for a temporary structure. This site can accommodate a marquee up to 21m x 10m or 2 large tipis. It is in the middle of our gardens, has views from the mountains to the sea, and is easily accessible from the guest car park. Ample power and some lighting is available.
