We speak to Fraser Duddy from Nightcap Ridge about their newly completed function space and cottages.
Set inside the World Heritage-listed Nightcap National Park, Nightcap Ridge is an exciting new eco-destination right here in the Byron hinterland.
Construction of an event space and two luxury cottages is complete and they are available for bookings.
"With the help of a grant from Destination NSW, through their 2017-18 Regional Tourism Fund, we were able to take our plans to the next level and the result has been really impressive," Fraser said.
The large Queenslander-style function space, The Argory, seats 100 and the open fire, vaulted ceilings and stylish interiors provide a glamorous yet versatile backdrop for any event. The Argory looks over the lily ponds which provide a beautiful spot to tie the knot in front of family and friends.

There are two new accommodation options, Blue Fig Cottage and Rose Gum Cottages. Both have two bedrooms, an open fire, full kitchen and huge clawfoot bathtubs.

"A fire pit sits alongside each cottage for guests to relax and enjoy a campfire under the stars. They can even order a stew or curry to cook on their fire.
The large vegetable garden and orchard can be used to create a paddock-to-plate experience and mountain bikes are available to roam around the park and visit natural wonders such as Minyon Falls.
In addition to the studio-style Logger’s Cottage, Nightcap Ridge can sleep groups of 10 across the three cottages making it perfect for group bookings.
"We are focused on delivering a world-class nature experience and good old fashioned service with a smile. More than 95 per cent of Nightcap Ridge guests have left a five star review so we must be doing something right!
"We also do our best to be as sustainable as possible and share this ethos with our guests. Nightcap Ridge is totally off the grid, powered by solar. We reject single-use plastics, our food waste goes to the chooks, we’re beekeepers and plant a range of native bee, bird and butterfly-attracting plants," Fraser said.
