Byron Bay business events: Sample itinerary for foodies

You are here

Byron Bay might be renowned for its natural beauty and colourful character. But for the food-loving visitor, idyllic beaches and lush rainforests pale in comparison to the region’s thriving food scene.

If you’re planning a business event in the Byron Shire, give your employees and co-workers the foodie experience of a lifetime. Here’s a suggested itinerary that’ll satisfy even the fussiest of culinary connoisseurs.

Bespoke cooking class & lunch at Bhavana Organic Farm + Cooking School

Simple, delicious, and nourishing food enjoyed in a nurturing, uniquely Byron environment – that’s what Bhavana Organic Farm + Cooking School is all about. Your team can stroll through the ever-green countryside, soak up the panoramic mountain views, and enjoy back-to-basics, hands-on participation.

Bhavana Organic Farm + Cooking School can create custom events, classes, tastings, and workshops to meet your group’s specific needs and schedule. A bespoke cooking class and lunch is a fantastic choice, making for one of the best ways a team of foodies can spend the morning.

Afternoon tour and tasting at Cape Byron Distillery

Brookie’s award-winning gin contains 25 botanicals, 17 of which are native to the Northern Rivers. The Cape Byron Distillery, where Brookie’s Gin is hand-crafted, offers fun, sensory guided corporate tours and tastings that take you from the inner workings of the distillery to the subtropical rainforest.

Learn how the Brookie’s team marry native flavours, smell and touch the rainforest botanicals that give the Byron Dry Gin its complex flavour, and work your way through an in-depth tasting.

Explore Byron with Table Under a Tree

The Byron region is dotted with roadside stalls selling home-grown produce, farms growing fresh fruits and veggies, and world-class foodie hotspots. Table Under a Tree offers private, customisable tours for business groups that explore Byron Bay and its spectacular hinterland through a culinary lens.

Sample artisan products, learn about farming in the region, and connect with small, premium producers. Tours typically run from 9 am to 3 pm and include three to four locations, coffee and morning tea, and an indulgent lunch at a local café or restaurant.

Afternoon guided tour of Stone & Wood’s Byron Brewery

Stone & Wood may be adored across the country, but it was born and raised here in Byron Bay. Its tasting room and brewery in the heart of Byron’s Arts & Industry estate houses 31 brewing tanks, a canteen offering snacks and share plates, and a spacious, laid-back beer garden.

Tours kick-off with a welcome beer and insightful overview of the drink’s history, ingredients, and Stone & Wood’s socially conscious approach to business. Your group will then explore the brewing deck before a guided tasting of five beers, including one-offs and limited releases.
