Today we ventured out of Byron Bay (where we’re currently staying) to drive about 10 minutes hinterland to a small town called Newrybar. I use the term “town” very loosely because Newrybar really is gorgeously tiny. With just one general store in the main street, the authentic Australian vibe really shines through with this hidden gem.
The “meal & shop”
We are on quite a tight deadline with our activities in Byron so to maximise our efficiency we opted to book in for lunch at HARVEST and get a sneaky shopping session in right after. HARVEST is a restaurant housed in a huge queenslander on Newrybar’s main street. Out back is a working garden, that you can freely walk through which provides much of the food that you eat at the restaurant. PIA’S PRO TIP: Doesn’t matter what you order, also get the roasted potatoes!
After lunch, we took a well needed walk around the garden, and then crossed the road to check out the Newrybar Merchants and Luther & Co. Both are well worth spending time at. Fun fact: We saw Jack Johnson there last time we were here.
The stores in Newrybar sell local products, as well as an abundance of antiques and trinkets from yesteryear. If you are looking for something new for your home with that “Byron-vibe”, Newrybar really is a place you need to visit.
