Host Your Next Event

One of the most beautiful gems in the Byron Shire, Our property In The Pocket offers tranquil surroundings, luxury accomodation, and dynamic spaces all with a “Balinese Twist”.

A stunning 5-acre retreat in the Byron Bay Hinterland. Just minutes from Mullumbimby, Brunswick Heads, and the iconic Byron Bay beaches, this haven offers lush lawns, exotic gardens, and pockets of rainforest nurtured over 25 years.

Current owners, Lisa and Mike Galea, have infused their passion for eco-friendly living, adding vegetable patches, fruit trees, and a future bush-tucker walk. The property features accommodation for up to 12 people and partnerships with local glamping services for larger groups. Our permanent on-site Lotus Mahal provides a beautiful, comfortable workshop space.

Perfect for retreats, offsites, or events, Sanctuary in The Pocket is where nature meets creativity.
