Fig Tree Restaurant

From your ceremony, under a huge fig tree with the ocean, lighthouse, and Julian rocks as a backdrop, through to cocktails and canapés by the pool or lawn games and a gentle walk through the garden – your guests will feel instantly wowed, relaxed and indulged.

Established in 1981 Fig Tree is Byron Bay’s most awarded restaurant, this year again winning “Best Restaurant North coast Region” and again being a national finalist in “Best BYO Restaurant.”

Dinner can be a relaxed affair, by the pool or on the lawn under the stars ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ or a more intimate dining experience in the restaurant. With a large open planned interior, the restaurant leads itself to a night of family, friends, great food and fun.

Che, Head Chef and Owner, keeps it simple with produce sourced predominantly from the restaurant’s own gardens, along with the fields, paddocks, and oceans that surround Byron Bay. In the restaurant, he combines this premium produce with his creativity and experience, gained from years spent travelling and cooking around the world.

For your wedding menu, Che will invite you to the restaurant to enjoy a six-course tasting, before sitting down with you to design a menu that reflects what is fresh, local, in season and is “the food you want to eat!!”

Fig Tree offers two houses for accommodation – The Dairy and Sunrise, both on either side of the restaurant, for you, your family or friends to get ready in or retire to.

Verandahs

Choosing your wedding venue will be the most important decision you will make to begin planning your special day. Therefore a number of important factors have to be considered to ensure the day is perfect.

You have to consider whether the venue is functional for your style of wedding. Will it accommodate your caterers and their equipment? Can it provide for the unpredictable elements Mother Nature throws at us? Will your guests be relaxed and comfortable throughout the day and into the evening?

Verandahs have considered all of the above and provide several beautiful locations around the property to set the stage for your day. There are ample shaded areas in the gardens for the warmer months and flat level grass areas for ceremony seating. There are big wide verandahs to mingle on during the night or seat your guests for a feast! For those wedding days where the sun has refused to shine, we have the verandahs as your romantic wet weather option with 360 degree see through pull down blinds to give protection from the elements all year round or can simply add another dimension and transition the mood from afternoon to evening entertaining.

The huge undercover carport accommodates the caterer’s needs with ample power points, lighting and access to running water.

Verandahs Studio House is the perfect place for the bride and her maids to relax and get ready. The Studio House is far enough away from the wedding activity for your privacy but still close enough to feel the excitement as your day comes together and your guests start arriving.

The main king bedroom is a beautiful backdrop for your first photos! No need to leave the property for that perfect photo shoot. Verandahs have that covered as well.

Whilst the Bridal photo shoot is in progress your guests can mingle in gardens and sport their talent in a variety of lawn games, or simply relax and watch the sunset.

We have it covered at Verandahs, leaving no surprises except for the ones on your guest’s faces as they arrive at your chosen venue!

This is our promise to you…
