Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Secluded, quiet and everything you could dream of for a romantic country escape surrounded by nature. Originally the old dairy bails for the property, the cottage is now beautifully renovated with 2 bedrooms and a luxury bathroom plus an extra toilet.
Open the french doors to a private porch overlooking a stunning and unique garden and views of the orchard. Outside the main bedroom you will find a free standing claw foot tub which is a relaxing treat on a hot day or evening.

The space
A welcome basket of provisions (including farm fresh eggs from our girls and local sourdough bread) will be waiting on your arrival, along with a few essentials like butter, olive oil, milk, condiments etc, teas and a coffee machine. There is a bbq and a firepit to cook on outside however the cottage is equipped with a 2 ring induction hob and mini oven if you prefer to cook inside.
Wake up to the sound of native birds and wander through the property to spot wallabies, koalas and hundreds of birds! Trek down to the creek and swim in the 6ft deep swimming hole when you need to cool off. There are lots of places to picnic on this 50 acre property so be prepared to do some exploring!
The cottage is equipped with a smart TV with internet access for streaming, a DVD player and bluetooth soundbar for entertainment on rainy days. We have a few classic DVDs in the collection!
Please note we do not have air conditioning but there are ceiling fans and extra portable fans provided. For the cooler months there is a cosy wood burning heater in the lounge and a portable electric heater.

Getting here:
Whether you are driving from Ballina or Byron Bay, we highly recommend coming via Lismore. The roads are better so it's an easy drive and the landscape is beautiful. I would recommend stopping in Lismore to stock up on nibbles, drinks etc. Lismore has everything in the way of supermarkets and also some great cafes! If you are coming from Queensland the route via Nimbin is a beautiful drive.

Extra spaces:
We also have a beautiful 27ft Vintage Airstream on site that may be used as an additional sleeping space. Please enquire if you are interested in this add on.

Where you’ll be

Koonorigan, New South Wales, Australia

Ideally located between Lismore and Nimbin in the NSW Northern hinterland we are roughly an hour from Ballina Airport and likewise from the buzzing beachside town of Byron Bay. Escape the crowds and enjoy the peace and tranquility of Vintage Green, a little piece of paradise.
Nearby attractions include the stunning geology of Nimbin Rocks, The Channon Craft Market, the hippy hub of Nimbin town, Lismore Organic Market, and Lismore restaurants and cafes only a 20 minute drive. Eltham pub is only half an hour away and the food is highly recommended.
All this with Ballina airport, an easy and picturesque drive away.

Ex Graphic Designer and avid renovator... I have always loved travel and new experiences. My partner Drew has left his career in Finance and is now a highly skilled handyman! We love creating beautiful spaces so the combination of my design skills and his practical abilities means we are busier than ever on the renovation front along with learning how to be farmers! Can't wait to be travelling again, but in the mean time we work on our awesome property in the Northern Rivers.

During your stay

The property is a 50 acre custard apple orchard with a variety of other fruit trees and when they are in season you are welcome to pick whatever you wish! We live in the main house (near the road and away from the cottage) and my daughter and partner also live on the property. You may see us cruising around doing farm chores and the occasional lawn mowing duties, but it won't be intrusive and please feel free to say hi!
We value the peace and quiet that this beautiful location brings and want you to have a tranquil and quiet stay, so we will leave you alone to enjoy it. However if you need anything we can be contacted by mobile during daylight hours.
