Our Slice of Paradise
It feels a little off the beaten track at Blackbird, and that’s how we like it. But in reality we’re just a 12-minute drive from the main street of Mullum and 35 minutes from Byron. GPS will bring you to our door, no problems. The final couple of kilometres is a bit of an incline up the side of the mountain, and the last 400 metres is our gravel drive.
There’s something very special about this area, tucked up in the hills of the Nightcap National Park, one of Australia’s largest subtropical rainforests. Whether it’s the acres of lush greenery, spectacular views eastwards to Cape Byron and the Pacific Ocean, or Mount Chincogan in the distance—believed to be an Indigenous fertility totem—we’re not sure. In any case, Blackbird invites you to get up and close with the landscape and the wildlife — including the local population of rare and indigenous yellow-tailed black cockatoos, who we’re honoured to share our property with.
