Byron’s Sun Bistro opens!

Byron’s Sun Bistro opens!

Following an intensive seven months of construction Sunrise Beach’s new local has thrown open its doors. The Sun Bistro, at the end of Bayshore Drive, opened to the public on Tuesday December 16.

Suzy Campbell from Sunrise Beach has lived in Byron Bay since 1969. “With the Suffolk Park Hotel all the locals go there, you can get to know your neighbours” said Suzy. “That’s what The Sun Bistro will do for Sunrise. We’ll be able to wander down there and have a meal and a glass of wine. It will make Sunrise more of a community”.

“Our team are working tirelessly” said Development Director Jeremy Holmes. “Bennett Constructions have done an amazing job in bringing our vision to life and we are thrilled that they will continue to work with us now on the construction at North Byron Beach Resort. We’re hoping for a great response from the community”.

The Sun will open seven days a week from 10:00am – 10:00pm and 10:00am to midnight Friday and Saturdays. The Sun houses a bistro, bar, sports lounge and TAB, undercover childrens’ play lounge, back deck, landscaped gardens, car park and drive through bottle shop, all nestled into a stunning landscape backdrop.

A complimentary shuttle bus will operate seven nights a week from 6:00pm servicing Sunrise, the Arts and Industry Estate and Ewingsdale.

Tallowood releases creek frontage land

Tallowood releases creek frontage land

Byron Shire’s community with heart, Tallowood Ridge in Mullumbimby, has just released Stage 3B of the immensely popular neighbourhood and two lots have sold in the first week.

“Of course we have been thrilled with the response to Tallowood Ridge” said John Bennett, one of the collective of owners.  “Pushing forward the release of Stage 3B to meet demand has been a great thing to be able to do. It’s quite remarkable to watch this community unfolding, what continually blows us away is the ownership and commitment of the residents to Tallowood.

“They have been instrumental in setting up community gardens, working with Council and each other. One family built a fabulous treehouse in one of the reserve areas. It’s used by lots of different families and is always a hub of activity”.

There are now 11 home sites available, priced from $224,000 for a near level 450sqm site on a quiet street facing north, to $298,000 for a 560sqm site in a premium position with frontage to both creek and nature reserve. The back yards of the new home sites in Stage 3B face the morning sun and this is the very first opportunity to buy creek frontage within Tallowood Ridge. Twenty metres on either side of the creek is being rehabilitated into nature reserve.

Only 42% of the 145 acre site will be developed for housing. The majority of the site, 84 acres, is being set aside in perpetuity for environmental protection, parks and recreation areas.

Tallowood Ridge is working closely with Wetland Care, who provide restoration, rehabilitation and monitoring services for the community. Work undertaken this year includes planting five thousand native species, erosion and weed control. Tallowood Ridge has been divided into ten management zones set aside for environmental restoration and rehabilitation, which are linked to particular stages of the development.

Granny flats and pets are both welcome at Tallowood Ridge, which offers full NBN coverage to all home sites.

“The houses being built reflect a very high standard” said John Bennett. “We are very pleased to be getting feedback that the quality of housing has improved considerably”.
