Sanctuary in The Pocket is a beautiful

property situated on 5 acres in the Byron

Bay Hinterland, 10 minutes north of

Mullumbimby, 10 minutes west of

Brunswick Heads and 20 minutes from the

iconic beaches Byron Bay.


The Gardens were lovingly created 25

years ago by a horticulturist and consist of

open lawns, established exotic gardens

and pockets of rainforest, with a beautiful

natural creek, spring fed from the hills



In 2013, the previous owners Jonathon

and Suzie started reinvigorating the

gardens and renovating the buildings,

creating a beautiful space for our guests

to enjoy the peacefulness of the property

and allowing them to relax in the stunning

surroundings of the magnificent gardens.

The current owners Lisa and Mike Galea

just recently took over the property in mid

2022. Lisa has added her designer touch

to all the spaces, while Mike has

continued to nurture the gardens, adding

vege patches, fruit trees, a space for his

bees (and their delectable honey), and is

currently designing a bush-tucker walk

though the garden. Both Lisa and Mike

are passionate about making the retreat

an eco friendly haven.

Sanctuary in the Pocket is the ideal space

to use as a place to renew yourself, or as a

springboard to explore all that Byron Shire

has to offer.

We provide accommodation for up to 12

people, and thus are perfectly set up to

hold family events, and retreats.

We can organise catering and cooking

courses, wood fire pizza evenings,

authentic Italian dinners (minimum 8

people) and massage and beauty

treatments onsite.
