It's been a pretty interesting few years getting to know our hood. Moving the business and slowly renovating the warehouse has given us a chance to really settle and meet the neighbours... a special thanks to ‘Corona’ for giving us a few extra magic months.
The Byron Arts and Industrial Estate is a rambling place that has grown from an old school industrial site to a collection of artisans, boutique spaces, cafes and local designers - some who have found world-wide success on the international market ➟
Like our next-door neighbours... 😃 For fashion lovers, no trip to the Arts & Industrial estate would be complete without out a visit to cult Aussie brand St Agni. Their store is an ode to minimal and refined luxury. Pick up those hand crafted woven loafers you’ve had your eye on!
For one-of-a-kind leather goods & curated fashion finds, pop across the road to East Coast General and then if you have timed it right slip into Kouzina right next door for some tasty authentic Greek cuisine.
How lucky are we that all of this is on our doorstep...!
This place is a creative hub that locals frequent for all manner of services and products, catering to all tastes and styles. Adding French flavour is Byron Bay Olive Co who recently supplied the yummiest tapenades and French cheeses for our photography workshop and for interior aficionados Pampa has a store full of beautiful inspiration for the home.
With waves being an integral part of life in Byron, surfers of all kinds are spoilt for choice out here. There are plenty of surf-related stores that call the Industrial estate home ... from old-school custom shapers like Brett Munro (Munro across the road from us) to the larger brands of Surfection, McTavish with boards, clothing and a low-key cafe - keeping everyone caffeinated:)
This place is really is like no other industrial site – with pretty much non-existent foot paths and very little parking...it's not the simplest area to navigate. Do your research before you head on out and make contact with the business you definitely want to visit. Regular retail hours often do not apply.
That's part of the appeal of working and living in Byron!
There are many other creative spaces and foodie places - but within cooee of our new home in Acacia Street are these must-do's when you come to visit!
