About the property

The Shalimar Roundhouse is a circular timber yurt situated in a beautiful mountain rainforest valley 10 minutes from the North Coast town of Mullumbimby in the Byron Bay hinterland.

Situated just 20 minutes from the beautiful river and ocean-front town & beaches of Brunswick Heads, north of Byron, our certified organic permaculture farm sits amongst large open mountain plateaus with panoramic views and beautiful sub tropical rainforest. The surrounding valley has a number of fresh water creeks with beautiful swimming holes, rock features, national park, bush walks and lookouts with panoramic views.

This self-contained timber yurt features:-

One large central, circular room which has 2 queen beds, lounge, sofa bed etc.

Adjoining this large room is a small self contained kitchen, a small bathroom with a shower and compost toilet, a sitting/dining room and large timber deck

Two Queen beds

Fold Out Futon

Large Lounge

Gas Cooking

Instant Gas Hot Water

Compost Toilet System

Digital Free to Air TV

Wifi Broadband

Rustic Piano

Certified Organic Vegetable Garden

We grow a range of organic citrus, fruits, vegetables and herbs on our farm. We have a small number of sheep, lambs, goats, cows and chickens. There are also native animals and lots of bird-life.

Conveniently located close enough to the coast and nearby attractions but in a quiet, beautiful mountain setting, the Shalimar Roundhouse is suitable for individuals, couples, friends and families on a short to longer term basis.

Another 3 guest spaces across the farm provide the option for group bookings, retreats, activities or workshops. We can provide local, organic foods or full catering options and offer some experiential activities such as a permaculture and rainforest tour. Please enquire for more details

Other guest spaces are listed on Stayz as 'Araluen Dome / Permaculture Farm' - property ID 189626

and 'Araluen Cabin' - property ID 189624 .

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Shalimar. The cottage is comfortable and has all needs covered. The peaceful location is ideal and the views are a welcome change to the suburban chaos. Looking forward to returning!!

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Shalimar Roundhouse and wished we had more time to enjoy the peaceful quiet atmosphere. The cottage had everything you could need, and the verandah was the perfect place for a quiet moment. The instructions for arrival were very easy, even in the dark.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Shalimar. Our son loved it too! Great hospitality and serene surrounds. The kitchen had everything we needed and more - which is more than I can say for many luxury resorts. We were a little concerned that the pedestal fans wouldn't be enough as we stayed during the hottest part of the year, but they did the trick and we were comfortable. We'll be back!

What an amazing place to be creative!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had such a relaxing time. It's a great place to come as a couple but we are also looking forward to coming back with our children as it has heaps of room. It's very peaceful! I loved it, the garden, the view, the birds, the fully equipped round house and of course Carmen and Adam. They are so knowledgeable and friendly. Thanks so much and we will see you again! Alice and luke.

Everything about our stay was wonderful: the roundhouse, location and people! The roundhouse has all the amenities you need and more with a great vegetable garden attached. The surrounds are stunning and despite it being too cold to swim we still had a lovely time exploring the creeks and waterfalls. I cannot recommend a stay here highly enough!
