The Loft is the perfect romantic getaway:

Revel in the peace and romance of your own private sanctuary.
Located underneath The Loft, The Shed provides a rural backdrop for private functions.
Seating up to 130 guests, it has:
- 160m2 space
- polished floors
- natural stained wooden walls
- extra high roof
- huge bi-fold doors opening on to manicured lawns.
Rise Farm has one main building, "The Barn".
The Barn was designed and built in a beautiful rustic all timber Scandinavian-style, with a zero-carbon footprint. It is eco-friendly and totally solar powered and off grid*
It has two components:
- "The Loft" is the top floor and main living area for your accommodation retreat. It's perfect for couples and family getaways (see Loft tab for more details).
- "The Shed" is the larger space on the bottom floor. It is used day to day for farm machinery but is cleared for events and weddings (see "The Shed" tab for more details).
If you are looking for a place to relax, Rise Farm is perfectly peaceful and tranquil.
*Rise Farm is totally off grid.
Upstairs above The Barn area is the primary area let for accommodation, which we call “The Loft”.
The Loft is a self-contained living area, complete with:
- 3 bedrooms including a luxurious master bedroom with a king-sized bed, ensuite, and private balcony
- accommodation for up to six people
- 2 bathrooms (3rd bathroom downstairs)
- kitchen with gas cooktop
- Nespresso machine, (pods included)
- crockery, saucepans, napery
- indoor fireplace with an intergrated wood-fired oven below
- living and study area connected to a massive outdoor deck with gas BBQ
- BOSE sound system able to be used to play music from your smartphone
- 32″ TV, with a DVD/Blu-ray player.
Bonus: Booking The Loft automatically gives you partial access to and use of the area downstairs (The Shed) for undercover car storage, gym equipment.
Gym equipment supplied includes yoga mats, TRX, basic weights, bands etc.
The Shed is the 160m2 ground floor space under The Loft.
With its rustic Scandinavian style, extra high ceilings, polished concrete floors, and huge bi-fold doors opening to expansive views over the countryside, The Shed is the space used for events.
Its elevated location on a ridge provides a breathtaking backdrop for any event!
Day to day, this area is used to store farm machinery and equipment, but for an event it is cleared and transformed to create an amazing weather proof reception space, with no stress about the elements ruining your day and no need for a marque!
See below for more information on weddings.
(Note: For standard bookings of The Loft, this area is not fully cleared out and will be partly taken up with stored farming equipment.)
Rise Farm offers the best of all worlds, nestled as it is in a quiet farming community, yet close to a great variety of beaches (from secluded to busy) and not far from major tourist attractions.
You can easily get in amongst the action of Byron or the Gold Coast if you choose. A 30-minute drive will have you enjoying all that Byron Bay has to offer – beaches, cafes and markets.
Or you can well and truly stay away if that’s what you prefer. Take a casual stroll in the rainforest or cycle (road bikes supplied) through our beautiful Burringbar Valley with picturesque waterfalls and forest streams, green pastures and plantations.
There is a beautiful secluded beach only 20 minutes away.
For the fit, walk the 8 kilometres of our own on-farm tracks through pastures, forest, and rainforest and walk by the farm’s waterfalls (ease of access is subject to seasonal conditions).
For those who enjoy a fitness challenge, a steep climb to the rear of the property allows access to the adjoining 5000-hectare Mt Jerusalem National Park. The park is not developed for tourism and offers an untouched sanctuary to explore by mountain bike or walking along fire trails. A GPS is recommended as tracks are extensive and it’s easy to get lost!
Recommended things to see/do:
Easy day trips include:
- Byron Bay
- Mt Warning (can be climbed)
- Gold Coast (any part or any attraction)
- Tropical Fruit World
- Scenic Rim National Park and Natural Bridge
- Famous Snapper Rocks Surf Break.
Weekend Cycle Retreats
For those who really want to get away, our cattle farm backs onto the 5000-hectare Mt Jerusalem National Park where there are no tourist facilities. It is raw and unexplored with very few visitors.
There are spectacular single trails running over ridges along the range and plenty of fire-trail runs. Explore secluded rainforest rock pools and waterfalls. Don’t forget your GPS!
Details of locations and tracks will be supplied to guests.
Ride through the picturesque Tweed Valley and take on the famous Burringbar Range with spectacular scenery and coffee shops aplenty. Typical options include a 60–100k ride Saturday and a 50–60k follow-up on Sunday.
Enjoy over 130 secluded and tranquil hectares, perched high in the hinterland overlooking the surrounding valley. Rise Farm is a unique EcoLux haven with accommodation built into the loft of a Scandinavian-style barn.
The essentials for a pleasant weekend are all available with BBQ facilities, camp fire area, plenty of hot water, and clean flushing toilets.
