The ‘Arts Factory’ was created in the 70’s by hippies and local and international artists. In the 80’s it was an internationally recognised rock and roll venue. The ‘Birthplace’ of much of the fame and spirit of Byron Bay, The Arts Factory Lodge still maintains that original spirit today. Come and relax in our enchanted 5 acre, subtropical haven. Laze by the pool, swing in the hammocks and soak up the friendly atmosphere for which we are universally famous.

Our Funky Workshops include Didgeridoo Making, African Drumming and Yoga. Join in a game of table tennis, basketball or volleyball. Jump in the pool. Hang out in hip Byron Bay or relax on the spectacular beaches. In the evening enjoy DJ’s, Bands, Live Performances at the Byron Bay Brewery or the Zany Talent Show every Tuesday Night.
