Byron at Byron Resort

The Byron at Byron is a beautiful resort set in an 18-hectare rain forest just outside Byron Bay in northern New South Wales. Such a luscious do-over has given the resort a peaceful, residential quality. The foyer hero’s a stunning commissioned art by the late Minnie Pwerle.

The Byron at Byron Resort and Spa is underwent a AUD$2.1 million refurbishment back in August 2016. The Byron at Byron had enlisted the help of architect and interior designer Penny Campbell, of award winning Brisbane firm Haysom Architects, to revamp all suites and central facilities of the property while also maintain the relaxed ambience and rainforest theme throughout.

Penny describes her design inspiration: “I have focused on a Minnie Pwerle art theme for the décor, while also taking design cues from the beautiful natural surrounds of the Resort. The Byron at Byron’s ongoing relationship with the local Arakwal people and local elder Delta Kay also continues to be a key theme.”

Minnie Pwerle well regarded as one of Australia’s greatest female Aboriginal artists, and has had a major influence on the art and design of the Resort. Minnie’s eye-catching artworks are easily recognisable with her uncompromising brush strokes and expert use of pattern, movement and colour. Her artwork was featured through out each resort room on the upholstery such as cushions and couches.
