  • ABOUT THE ORCHARD ESTATE

    The Orchard Estate is set on a macadamia nut orchard situated in the picturesque Byron Bay hinterland. Set across 100 acres, this premium wedding venue overlooks the spectacular Nightcap mountain range and stands alone, offering complete privacy and serenity. It features a purpose built barn, commercial kitchen and toilets to accommodate your entire day.

    As an architecturally impressive structure, The Orchard Estate is as stunning as it is user-friendly. The interiors of the modern barn provide the ultimate blank canvas to style your wedding, presenting polished concrete floors, white walls and dark framing.

    The sublime beauty of this landscape offers the best backdrop for your ceremony and photographs. A gentle walk throughout the macadamia orchard or witnessing a golden sunset from the rolling hills, capturing the perfect moment is easily done. Having your photos taken on-site also allows for more time to enjoy the company of your loved ones!
