Property Description

Want your own privacy for less than the price of a bunk in a crowded hostel? The Aviary provides pre-set private comfortable tents, with air mattress, pillow and sleeping bag.

We have a communal chill out area with space to sit and relax. Hang out and utilise our free wifi, or take a short walk down our direct access track to Tallow beach. Buses run roughly every hour into town with the stop right outside our gate.

There are shared amenities, washing facilities and a variety of camp kitchens to cook whatever sort of meal you want!

We also offer surfing lessons and a range of day trips from the hostel, exploring the beautiful Byron Bay hinterland. Including trips to waterfalls, Nimbin and other various local attractions. At the Aviary our aim is to provide everyone with the best backpacking experience, so we offer various night time activities to break the ice and get everyone mingling. More information provided on site.

(Note: We do not accept groups larger than 4 people. Contact us for more information.)

    My favourite hostel on the east coast. Super relaxed and chilled out vibes, away from the hustle of town. Only a short walk to a lovely beach which you have pretty much to yourself. The staff are so friendly and make you feel at home, theyve even got a hostel puppy- i love you panda! They run nightly activities and their tours are so much fun and really cheap- The Killen, Lennox day trip was amazing! thanks so much guys. i hope to make it back soon x

    I had an awesome stay here! I loved being outside of town away from the craziness and super close to Tallows and Arakwal National Park. The staff are all super nice and friendly, and made great recommendations on places to check out. The overall vibe of the place was relaxed and felt like a little community. It can be difficult to find a place to hang out when it's raining, but that's camping for ya. The pillows weren't the best, but a bag of clothes fixed that problem. I'd stay here again!

    I personally love camping so my review may be slightly biased, but I enjoyed my stay at The Aviary greatly. The staff were friendly and so was their dog Panda!!! Relative to the cost of other hostels in Byron Bay, I think The Aviary is great value for money. They have a main tent area where activities are run every couple of days, such as movie night or goon pong, and the facilities are nice enough, particularly the showers. Only complain is it's next to a highway so its difficult to sleep.
