A boutique wellness retreat situated on a sweeping 33.9-hectare land holding in Byron Bay’s hinterland has been offered to the market.

The Hinterland Retreat is located at 660 The Pocket Road and comprises 15 stylish rooms across four standalone buildings, with a further three buildings on the property dedicated to utilities.

The buildings facilitate several uses, allowing the retreat operators to provide experiences such as yoga, meditation, sound healing, massage therapy and group activities.

The site offers prospective buyers significant development potential, with three separate approvals already received which will allow the owner to expand the retreat’s operations.

Purchased by the current owners in 2014, the property has been constructed with sustainability at the heart of its design and provides a flexible blank canvas for the purchaser to bring their vision to life.

Colliers agents Gus Moors, Karen Wales and George Hudson have been appointed to the sale alongside Matthew McCormack and Michael Gudgeon of Ray White.

The Hinterland Retreat is offered for sale via an Expressions of Interest campaign and is expected to fetch a price of $10 million.

“The Hinterland Retreat is an exciting opportunity to secure a large tourist zoned site amongst the pristine hinterlands that provides an incoming purchaser with a blank canvas to truly make their mark in one of Australia’s highest growth tourism regions.”

“The Retreat has been strategically constructed to provide an incoming purchaser with a wellness offering that complements its unique location and affords different and varied room types with development opportunities to immediately expand upon to safely secure a foothold in this fantastic market,” Mr Hudson added.

Byron Bay is renowned for being one of Australia’s most popular holiday destinations and celebrity hotspots, drawing large volumes of visitors seeking a health and wellness getaway.

Set against a lush tropical rainforest backdrop, Byron Bay offers the ultimate atmosphere for a relaxing retreat.

Mr McCormack said he expects strong interest from organisations seeking to get a foothold within the thriving Byron Hinterland.

“Properties with this amount of approved multiple dwellings are very rare in the area. The foundations are set in place for an outstanding opportunity for hotel and retreat investors,” Mr McCormack said.

Another major point of difference is the property’s easy accessibility to the domestic Ballina/Byron Airport and the Gold Coast International Airport, a factor that will attract visitors to the retreat.
