The Wren's Rest is offering self-contained accommodation in their unique eco-friendly style tucked away at the edge of a rainforest. It is very private with spectacular views of the Nightcap National Park and the secluded valley where Quandong and Minyon Falls are situated.

Located centrally in the heart of the Northern Rivers, it is 45minutes drive from world famous Nimbin,with 20 minute drives to Mullumbimby and Bangalow on the Northern and Southern sides and a 35 minute Easterly Drive to Byron Bay.

The Wren’s Rest also has a working Art Foundry where resident bronze artist Brett Harrison Allen creates his bronze sculptures.

Enjoy the peace, the quiet, the star filled nights and the native birds and wildlife.

Your accommodation is two minutes by car and 15 minutes easy ride by bike to Minyon Falls, and on clear days there are views to the ocean from the waterfall's edge, which has a wheelchair accessible platform. Minyon Falls Loop Walk can be accessed from Minyon Falls picnic area; this walk takes visitors through changing vegetation to the base of the falls past a large Brushbox stand and along the escarpment edge. Toilets and picnic/barbecue facilities are provided.

We can organise a guided bike tour with a professional, highly qualified and passionate guide through the many tracks throughout the forest or a guided day and/or night vision walk. Imagine exploring the Australian rainforest at night, searching for nocturnal wildlife without disturbing them with a torch? Using Night Vision Goggles to observe Australia’s nocturnal animals in their natural habitat, see a constellation of glow worms and after your walk enjoy a hot chocolate at the top of Minyon Falls gazing up at the starry night. Heaven!

The Wren's Rest offers individuality. On the veranda you'll find comfortable sitting areas with views of the garden and Nightcap National Park. The accommodation includes three hut-style queen rooms, and one cabin-style family room which sleeps six with an additional sofa bed in one of the hut rooms.

Wren's Rest is fully equipped with a commercial kitchen, breakfast bar, inside dining area with a number of alternate outside dining areas undercover and out under the beautiful fig tree, which is a feature of our gardens. We can source some wonderful local caterers so you don't have to cook or you can keep it simple and dine alfresco out under the fig tree with the BBQ provided.

Linen is not provided, however for a fee of $30.00 we have bed linen and bath towels available for hire. There is a small automatic washing machine and undercover space to dry your laundry if needed.

Each of the three hut rooms has a pedestal fan and the main cabin has a ceiling fan as well as a pedestal fan. For heating, there is a wood fire heater located in the main cabin and a small electric column heater in each hut room.

The Wren's Rest is a retreat, a rural hideaway, a bush experience - a unique adventure. We are offering short term stays where you can relax, explore and visit nearby National Parks, galleries, potteries and cultural centres in and around the Byron Bay Hinterland, all within about 30 minutes drive. Come to visit friends or relatives or just to get a feel for the local alternate lifestyle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous for kids! We had 3 adults and 9 kids and the facilities were fabulous.It was a delight to cook in the industrial kitchen and the lack of WIFI was an added bonus as the kids played lots of card games!The short drive to Minyon Falls made it a great location.
