THE FIGS BYRON is the perfect venue for your wedding!
An idyllic private garden and rural oasis in the heart of the beautiful Byron Shire featuring stunning panoramic views from the Nightcap Ranges National Park, to the iconic Mount Warning and Mount Chincogan, all the way to the Pacific Ocean at Brunswick Heads. The property features expansive and stunning subtropical gardens, highlighted by four magnificent 250 year old Moreton Bay fig trees and a myriad of rare and exotic palms, flowering trees and shrubs. The gardens provide for multiple options for the wedding ceremony site, as well as provide a photographer's delight with its array of fabulous backdrops for beautiful wedding photos. The property also boasts more than 500 meters of pathways 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.
On site amenities include a lovely grassed reception site surrounded by gardens, with views from the mountains to the sea, large enough to accommodate a 20m x 10m marquee, and high quality accommodation for 8 in the newly built deluxe apartments, with an additional 6 in the newly renovated fully self contained cottage.
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 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.

OUR COMMITMENT TO YOU
At THE FIGS BYRON, we recognise that your wedding day is one of the most important and memorable days of your life. We accept our important role in your special day with true commitment and a sense of personal and professional responsibility to ensure we meet, and hopefully exceed, your expectations. Wherever it is reasonable to do so, we will endeavour to work with you to personalise your wedding. Our wedding philosophy is based on the belief that you are the most important focus for us and we want you to enjoy your special day in as relaxed and enjoyable a setting as possible, and for you to be able to take your time to enjoy your beautiful surroundings: in the preparation period, the actual wedding day, and in the pleasure and afterglow of the day/s immediately after the special day. We believe this approach is a rare commitment.

Guests staying in onsite accommodation must respect our neighbours by minimising loud noise, particularly after 10.30pm.

This includes easy turning capacity for larger delivery vehicles and buses and for easy access for the disabled.
