A lush rainforest retreat may be the last place you would think to take your furry friend, but at Shambhala at Byron, pets are welcomed with open arms.

Right where the rainforest meets the beach, this hidden paradise has ample space for your pup to run about. The property is just a few kilometers out of Byron, so while you have complete seclusion on the private Belongil Beach, you and your furry companion can walk along the coast and in to town in just 15 minutes.

Once you’re in town, there are a multitude of dog-friendly cafes and restaurants to dine at.

If you’d prefer to eat in, the kitchens in the self-contained treehouse accommodation at Shambhala come fully equipped. Alternatively, for dinner with a view, fire up the BBQ in the communal area and watch the sun set from the outdoor deck and dining table.

Cost per night: From $250

Where: 14 Childe Street Byron Bay, NSW
