gurragawee has a new home

The brainchild of Kate LeMessurier, the original gurragawee at Brooklet was established in 2007. It rapidly became a highly sought after venue for events and short stay holidays on the north coast. The new location, set on 75 acres in the beautiful Byron hinterland area of Teven, carries on the tradition of gurragawee that was born in Brooklet, and takes it to a whole new level of opportunity and scope. Located just 15 minutes from the picturesque village of Bangalow and 25 minutes from Byron Bay, the new gurragawee is a unique haven, where you can enjoy a break away from the stresses of modern life. Set back from Eltham road, entry to the property via the rustic bridge over Maguire Creek feels like you’re crossing into another world. Explore the property, with its 1.5km of creek frontage and take a dip in the crystal clear freshwater lagoons. Fish for bass along the creek or relax with a picnic and listen to the rapids.

The grand plan

After extensive planning, our goal at the new gurragawee is to offer up a truly multipurpose property that incorporates our holistic approach towards everything we do. Soon, we will be perfectly placed to provide you with the opportunity to learn through workshops, hold your own private event or corporate function, or escape from the rigours of day-to-day living. Whether it be through promoting land care and regeneration of the property through our engagement with local environmental groups or its use as an enlightening facility for sustainable environmental living, photoshoots, relaxing with families and colleagues catch and release fishing, bird watching of just soaking in the environment, gurragawee is the unique property that delivers harmony with nature in a relaxed paradise.
