About Gretel Farm

houseSet in the lush hinterland of Byron Bay, Gretel Farm has undergone an easy conversion from working cattle property to magnificent lifestyle retreat. Stroll through open spaces and gardens or find a shady nook in the rainforest.

As you enter Gretel Farm the drive sweeps you up past majestic trees, parkland and formal gardens to the original 1895 homestead with its wrap-around verandahs and tasteful modern extensions including a separate studio B&B.

Gretel Farm EntranceAdjacent to the homestead verandahs, the large level northern lawn leads through to the gazebo, and the12 metre saltwater pool is easily accessible in the western garden.

Part of a larger cattle property originally settled in 1894, Gretel Farm was retained as the home block when the property was subdivided for macadamia orchards by Kerry Packer. Gretel was the name of Kerry’s mother.

Gretel Farm is close to Bangalow (9 minutes), Byron Bay, Lennox Head, and Lismore (20 minutes). If you feel like a dip in the ocean, the sea is never far away while waterfalls, bush walks and major tourist attractions are within easy reach.
