About

A slice of tranquillity where there’s always more to explore

There are only so many chances to live or stay in this exclusive, breathtaking stretch of Cape Byron. But once you’re here, there are memorable experiences around every corner.

Named after the respected Wategos family who established a farm here in the 1930s, the focal point is the gorgeous sheltered stretch of white sandy beach. Perfect for swimming and surfing, the secluded Wategos beach is an idyllic family-friendly spot.

The scenic beauty of the 4km Cape Byron Walking Track offers incredible views – don’t be surprised if you spot a whale or two. Walk to the historic Lighthouse and Maritime Museum, or explore the unspoilt lush forests of Cape Byron headland nature reserve.

Blessed by a temperate climate, every day is an escape – from sunrise to sunset, the changing subtropical landscapes of Wategos are a constant reminder of how uniquely beautiful this part of the world truly is.
