Description

If you are looking for accommodation in Byron Bay for your next holiday or short escape, come and enjoy the beautiful holiday accommodation at Planula, a tranquil tropical oasis set on over 50 acres just over 3 km from the town centre.

Your hosts, Tim and Wandy, will make you feel at home at this modern Bed & Breakfast style retreat.

Unwind on the extensive decks around the house overlooking the frog pond and enjoy the lush gardens. How about listening to the birds and frogs over a BBQ at night?

Inside you can enjoy our large collection of music and games or simply relax with a good book in the spacious guest lounge under cathedral ceilings. Or make use of our free wifi (wireless broadband internet access), very fast, always on and in every room.

Extensive continental breakfasts are included with all stays at PLANULA – home baked muffins or freshly baked bread, fresh fruit, yoghurts, a range of cereals, different kinds of bread, fruit juice, tea and plunger coffee … a great way to start the day.

At night you can sample the local cuisine in one of the many fantastic restaurants in Byron. Alternatively, stay at home and make use of the outdoor BBQ area or the full PLANULA guest kitchen.

PLANULA has five modern decorated bedrooms and offers queensize double, twin share and single accommodation all with modern ensuite bathrooms. Triple bed configuration is possible in some rooms. All rooms look out onto our beautiful gardens.

You can virtually walk though every part of Planula and check out all rooms and common spaces using our new Virtual Tour Page or on google maps.

Why not spoil yourself and unwind in our exquisite queensize double room with its own stunning double spa and magnificent views?

Throughout the house you will find paintings and photographs by local artists. Currently works are by Hele Ellis, one of Byron’s well-known artists.

Many different frog species share their habitat around the ponds with numerous water dragons. Other wildlife seen around PLANULA include bandicoots, swamp wallabies, echidnas, possums and plenty of birds. There have even been koala sightings at the back of our property!

If you are arriving by plane, Click here to book online with Airport Transfers Byron Bay. They will meet your plane in Coolangatta (Gold Coast) or Ballina and drop you right on the PLANULA doorstep.

If you are driving, this is the easiest way to get to PLANULA:

NOTE: Do not trust your GPS / SatNav etc in your car as on some maps there is no Melaleuca Drive and it will send you to a different Melaleuca Drive in Mullumbimby which is not where you need to go.

  • Follow the Pacific Highway to the Byron Bay turn-off (Ewingsdale Intersection).
  • Follow the sign that says: Byron Bay 6km
  • Follow this road until a large BP Petrol station appears on the left side of the road. Fifty meters further there is an unsealed road to the right – this is Melaleuca Drive.
  • After about 400 meters, twenty meters before the end of the road on the right side you will find the PLANULA carpark (there is a sign).
  • Once on the carpark the entrance to PLANULA is on the left side.
  • At night, Melaleuca Drive is quite dark (no street lights) – once on our carpark you should see the PLANULA sign (which is lit at night) over the path leading to our front door.
  • Please do not continue to drive into our neighbour’s place, which is called ‘Temple Byron’ – there are two Balinese statues at their entrance, our entrance has a timber welcome panel.

If you come from the South, the route via Lennox Head is more scenic. If you have the time, drive along the ocean and enjoy the beautiful views. This road automatically brings you to the centre of Byron Bay from which it is only a short drive to PLANULA on Melaleuca Drive:

  • Drive through the town centre past Woolworths (part of the shopping plaza on your left).
  • At the next roundabout turn left and cross the railway.
  • Follow this road past the police station, past the hospital until you reach the 80 km/h zone.
  • Drive over Belongil Creek, past Belongil Fields Camping Ground.
  • The next left is Melaleuca Drive, an unsealed road. If you pass a large BP station on your right you have gone a bit too far.
  • After about 400 meters, twenty meters before the end of the road on the right side you will find a carpark (there is a sign).
  • Once on the carpark the entrance to PLANULA is on the left side.
  • At night, Melaleuca Drive is quite dark (no street lights) – once on our carpark you should see the PLANULA sign (which is lit at night) over the path leading to our front door.
  • Please do not continue to drive into our neighbour’s place, which is called ‘Temple Byron’ – there are two Balinese statues at their entrance, our entrance has a timber welcome panel.
