Unique Eco-luxe DA Opportunity Inside a National Park

When it comes to luxurious resort-style living amidst the luscious rainforests of the Byron hinterland, Nightcap Ridge presents as the ultimate indulgence.  


With an existing DA for an additional 12 cottages accommodating up to 45 overnight guests, this is the perfect addition to an eco-luxe accommodation portfolio. Alternatively, this is the ultimate setting in which to create your own family playground and estate.


Set on a 67-acre parcel of land in the heart of the Gondwana Rainforest, this tranquil property affords a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to privately own an ecological paradise inside the World Heritage-listed Nightcap National Park. 


A former dairy that has been lovingly, respectfully and authentically converted by two generations of passionate environmentalists, this unique offering consists of three generously appointed cottages, a three-bedroom manager's homestead and an architecturally designed function space, The Argory. This 500m2 purpose-built, open-sided gathering area boasts soaring ceilings, a grand fireplace together with a commercial kitchen and bar and a beautiful outlook.


Nightcap Ridge offers World Heritage-listed rainforest and waterways which are home to a myriad of endangered plant and animal species. And there are over 30,000 native plantings and mature fruit and nut orchard. Minyon Falls, currently undergoing a 7-million dollar upgrade, is just a 3km hike from the property. 


Pure water originates from a nearby spring which is then treated to another level of pristine via an onsite UV filtration system. Liquor and water use licensing is in place together with off-grid infrastructure including premium solar systems.  


Future expansion opportunities abound with strong forward bookings and measures in place to incorporate a corporate retreat, additional wedding and event facilities, a restaurant/cafe, or all of the above.  


Simply live, recharge, play and immerse in nature or upscale the existing eco-luxe tourism business, which offers full-service weddings, long-table lunches and short-term accommodation.
