Mullumbimby mountain perch
Forget feathers – Blackbird Byron woos with concrete, metal and glass. This three-room retreat won us over with ocean views, charming owners and a healthy disregard for the internet. James and Stella Hudson are your hosts, rustling up home-made breakfasts (and pizza, on demand) and arranging mood-boosting extras such as in-room massages or on-site yoga. Your cues to reconnect with Mother Nature include in-room binoculars, view-toting patios and a magnesium mineral pool that surveys the Pacific. The location is equally soul-soothing: a majestic Mullumbimby mountain, half an hour’s drive from buzzing Byron Bay.
