    Welcome to The Big Blue Barn.

    A unique and flexible warehouse space with onsite accommodation situated on the outskirts of Byron Bay - in Mullumbimby NSW.

    Nestled in 12 private acres of lush hinterland farmland, an incredibly inspiring spot to develop, create, exhibit or perform creative work. Peaceful and lush perfect for writing, creating and developing and big enough for rehearsals and performances of music, dance, theatre, comedy or circus (and could be progressive in different locations around the property), gallery and exhibition space, or workshops and conferences of any sort.

    The Big Blue Barn is a blank canvas for you to create whatever you can imagine.

    The Big Blue Barn accommodation can sleep 15 guests comfortably, and up to 24 dormitory style in 4 bedrooms. Fully stocked kitchen, bathroom (shower and bath) separate toilet, laundry, swimming pool, BBQ and entertaining area and Tiki Bar.

    We recently had the honour of welcoming Xavier Rudd and the United Nations for their pre-record rehearsal of their new album Nanna – and again for their pre-rehearsal prior to the kick off of their World Tour for their new album. It was a perfect space – they were able to set up their rehearsal on true stage size and enjoy the privacy, peace and space in their breaks.

    Coming soon – Ballroom Dancing in the Barn, and our first film crew is coming in to shoot a web series on location.

    Locations on site - open lush green fields, horse paddock and horses, cow paddock and cows, tropical grotto, old retro bus "Free Spirit", passionfruit vine covered horse ring, barn/warehouse style home, stunning 5br home (Managers home) with full decking and views to Mt Chincogan and the ocean.

    Locations close by: Stunning Byron Bay Hinterland: Mullumbimby, Coorabell, Myocum, Federal, Mt Chincogan, Mt Warning, amazing untouched/unbroken beaches stretching for miles, Tyagarah Nature reserve, Bryon Bay (colourful and busy super tourist town), Brunswick Heads (Beach town), Mullumbimby (biggest little town in Australia) , Uncle Toms Pie Shop (iconic and classic drive through pie shop - opposite our property), Crystal Caste (stunning tropical gardens),....and much more. We can assist in scouting any locations specifically required (cafes, restaurants,, shops, streets, town settings... anything required)

    Weekend bookings do need to be made well in advance, but weekday bookings very open – and even if the guest house is booked for the weekend – there is ample room for trucks, vans and equipment for crews to leave their equipment for the weekends and come back to site office/base on Monday mornings.

    We look forward to the chance to welcome you.
