Barefoot at Broken Head is the only private house in the Byron Shire approved for wedding receptions. We host the most sophisticated beach weddings in Australia. The couple walk over a  bush track to a pristine surf beach with eucalypts crowded thick over the hills, waves rolling in from the point, and not a house in sight. At the end of the single stretch of sand the guests can see the most easterly point of Australia - the exceptional Byron Bay Lighthouse. 

After the wedding ceremony the guests walk a minute back to a simple wooden gate to reveal the minimal masterpiece that is Barefoot at Broken Head.

In the days before and after your wedding reception have relatives or friends to stay, ride the bikes along the beach at low tide, or work up an appetite in the 20 metre lap pool.



Barefoot at Broken Head has seven other Byron Bay holiday houses to rent within a short walk on Broken Head Reserve Road. For the budget conscious there is the famous Broken Head Holiday Park with caravan accommodation just 250m away. Many guests also choose to stay in one of the multitude of holiday resorts in Byron Bay itself.

Three airlines fly into Ballina Airport just 20 minutes from the house, and the larger Gold Coast airport is 60 minutes north. Both airports provide easy access to Bryon Bay and Broken Head.
