Art by the Creek self-contained studio accommodation welcomes you to share our lifestyle.

Separate and private, nestled within a ten acre property fronting onto Kings Hole, Coopers Creek, this loft-style, open plan artist's studio is bright, light and airy with two verandahs to enjoy the ambience within a garden setting.

Although Art by the Creek is set up as a Bed and Breakfast - we supply a breakfast basket upon arrival - this studio/apartment is self-catering with mini-oven/cooktop; stainless steel electric frypan; pots and frypan, with your own bbq on the separate deck, if you wish to stay with us longer and be self-sufficient.

Recently renovated and extremely arty, we have designed this space with you in mind: enjoy a relaxing, time-out and as-natural-as-can-be experience limited only by your own desires.

Rainforest and native trees abound with wildlife including koalas, goannas, echidnas, wallabies, bush turkeys, black cockatoos, platypus, fish in the creek and any number of flittering, twittering and skittering creatures

You can take a short walk to the creek through ambient, rain-forest gardens and enjoy a swim in a totally private, natural setting: sit on a warm rock or take photos for your own painting experience later on.... all possible without getting in your car We have it all right here, at your feet.

However, if you do want to get in your car and take a look around this gorgeous area, there is no shortage of places to see. Five minutes down the road is the Domo Japanese Cafe, near the Federal Store, and is open for breakfast and lunch every day with world-class authentic sushi, best burgers and so much more Note: Doma Cafe is only open during the daytime. Federal Store is open all day, with fine local produce, bottle shop with a good selection of wines etc and other supplies local and organic produce to tantalize your tastebuds. Also a Post Office with tourist information, magazines, cards and local maps. Pop-up restaurants at the Federal Hall, or The Smokehouse pop-up on Friday and Saturday nights in the old Pogels Wood restaurant. A new coffee shop has also opened, boasting the best of the best....

There is always something going on in Federal - perhaps time your stay to coincide with the monthly film night? Or live band/fund-raiser. Or dance. Or theatrical event?

Drive fifteen minutes to Bangalow along country roads and discover how many world-class restaurants are waiting to receive and feed you. A few more minutes further down the road and you will be surfing at Wategos Beach or Belongil, or Tallows, or Broken Head......

Rainforest walks/Waterfall walks at Minyon Falls are but a short drive, as are Rocky Creek Dam and a little further again - into the Nightcap Ranges, Terania Creek Protestor's Falls and on to Nimbin.

Maybe you want to arrange your stay to coincide with one of the many happenings in our area? Mullum Music Festival highly recommended, around November; Byron Blues Festival Easter long weekend; Falls Festival January; Splendour in the Grass July, Byron Writers Festival August, Nimbin Mardi Grass, Boomerang Festival, Byron Surf Festival of Arts, Byron Film Festival, Starlight Festival, Tropical Fruits.... so many festivals, not enough days

Live theatre check out NORPA's website for current offerings - be it a dance performance, world music, comedy festivals, cutting edge theatre within a 30 minute drive to either Lismore or Byron Bay.

Byron Hinterland gives you the quiet relaxation of the rainforest with the opportunity to still enjoy all Byron has to offer kayaking, diving, ballooning, parachute jumps, hang-gliding and all things in the extreme......

For a holiday with a difference, come and visit us and see what Art by the Creek has to offer - we love it here and we're sure you will, too......

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing We loved staying here. Nestled in the hinterland, you wake up every morning to an amazing kakafony of birds singing. We saw platypuses down at the creek, and just enjoyed being surrounded by nature. The cottage is amazing with everything you need, and the bed is heaven. We were sad to leave and would love to come back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Delightful Stay We so enjoyed our 8 night stay.The cottage was so clean and welcoming.Many nights were spent outside on the verandah having a barbecue, playing our music and enjoying the ambience of this delightful place. Peter and Marika gave us the privacy we needed, but when we inquired about the area Peter gave us helpful info and was a delightful and informative host. We so enjoyed our drinks and nibbles with you both before we left, Marika you should write a book, you were funny, have lived an amazing life,and kept us laughing with your stories. I thoroughly recommend this property if you are looking for somewhere peaceful to recuperate, a private place to swim, the creek was delightful, and privacy, this place certainly covers it all. Thanks again Peter and Marika, we had a wonderful time, and you were gracious hosts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect getaway! Even though our stay was rained out, we were still cozy and had loads to do. The property is nestled amongst pretty gardens and fruit trees, with a friendly cat who likes to visit. We saw kangaroos, beautiful birds and even wild platypus, all within the range of the house. Marika and Pete were the perfect hosts, giving us the guided tour then giving us our space for the remainder. When we left, we were offered pancakes and felt like we were leaving a friends house. There is no internet or phone reception here, which is exactly what we wanted. Peace and quiet. Thank you for a wonderful stay and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Melissa & Brett
