Palm Valley lawn is a charming palm enclosure on the far north coast of NSW. This dreamy location showcases all that Byron Bay is renowned for—magnificent beaches, beautiful views, a temperate climate and relaxed atmosphere. It’s no wonder Byron Bay is one of Australia’s most popular wedding locations.

Celebrate your special day on the lawn, shaded by the surrounding lush bangalow palm rainforest. Take in all this magical seaside spot has to offer, as you exchange vows to the sound of ocean waves rolling in on the sand and the smell of the sea.

Just a stone’s throw away, the turquoise Pass Beach provides the perfect canvas for photos after the ceremony. There’s also magnificent whale watching opportunities during whale season.

This idyllic location is a terrific base for exploring the stunning Cape Byron precinct. Currenbah walking track will take you through lush coastal rainforest, with plenty of birdwatching opportunities along the way. A longer walk will lead you up over the hill to Wategos Beach, and all the way to Cape Byron Lighthouse.

If you and your guests are eager to explore some more, why not stay inside the national park? Choose from the award-wining Mildenhall Cottage or Partridge Cottage and Geoffs Shed that sit right on the beach. If you prefer, enjoy a stay at the heritage-listed Assistant Lighthouse Keepers' Cottages and treat yourself to panoramic views of the dramatic coastline.
