Federal: A Sleepy Village In The Mountains

Federal is a tiny village in the Byron Valley of the Northern Rivers region in New South Wales. Just 25 minutes from the sights at Byron Bay, Federal has earned a reputation as a beautiful, peaceful place for holiday makers looking to get away from the stresses of city life. You'll find lush gardens, beautiful countryside, and breathtaking views of the mountains. If you've only seen the beaches of Byron Bay, a holiday at Federal will show you what else this lovely area has to offer.

Federal is about an hour away from the bustling holiday destinations of Tweed Heads and Coolangatta. Furthermore, the city of Brisbane is just two hours to the north.

Northern Rivers Accommodation In Federal

Federal accommodation is elegant and tastefully furnished, with sweeping views of the area mountains and countryside. Unlike the massive houses found in other parts of the Northern Rivers region, Federal holiday rentals are often suitable for a smaller family or a couple in need of a romantic getaway. The village has a small general store which sells grocery items, so you can stock up on food to cook for the duration of your holiday. Most of Federal's guest homes are secluded and known for their privacy.

What To Do In And Around Federal

Most travellers journey to Federal to get away from it all: read a book in the gardens, nap in the hammock, or simply take in those beautiful country views. However, that doesn't mean there's not plenty to do in and around the area. Byron Bay is a popular day trip destination for holiday makers, with plenty of beaches, restaurants, shops, and attractions.

You'll find plenty of adventure in the Byron Valley region. Adventurers can go sky-diving, scuba diving, hot air ballooning, surfing, snorkeling, canoeing, or kayaking - and that's just to name a few! You might want to take the family on one of the area's dolphin wildlife tours to get up close to these playful sea creatures; whale watching is another popular option. For a more romantic activity, book a horseback ride on the beach at the Pegasus Park Equestrian Centre. If you'd rather get out into nature, you can explore the wilds at Nightcap National Park, Mount Jerusalem National Park, or Border Ranges National Park.

For a bit of culture, browse through Byron Bay's shops or tour the various art galleries throughout the region. Spas and healing centres also populate the region, so book yourself a massage or spa treatment as a special holiday splurge. Seafood in the region is second to none, so sample the catch of the day at Fishheads Restaurant, Fishmongers Cafe, or O-Sushi.

Whether you want a packed itinerary or you just want to relax with your feet up, Federal has a little something for everyone.

Excellent property with great rural exposure, and yet so close to the beach

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our time here, and will definitely stay again. The children loved Seven the donkey! The property is remote to allow you to get away from it all, and yet takes 5 minutes to get into town and the great beaches of Byron Bay. The property is excellently maintained and the owners are very friendly and welcoming. Thoroughly recommend.
