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 a space to sit and relax. Hang out and meet some new friends, or take a short walk to the amazing Tallow beach. Buses run roughly every hour into town with the stop right outside our gate.

We have a large amenity block and a unique, outdoor camp kitchen to cook whatever sort of meal you want!

We provide free wifi (limited) but encourage people get off the grid, loosen the shackles of social media and make some new friends round the camp fire or during one of our other nightly activities, such as our famous Free Goon Pong Wednesdays or our open air movie nights.

At the Aviary our aim is to provide everyone with an authentic Australian camping experience. If you want to meet some great, genuine people and have a love of the outdoors, then The Aviary is the place for you.

(Note: We do not accept groups larger than 4 people.) View House Rules

    Stayed at the Aviary for my first time. THE BEST HOSTEL EVER!!!! The staff were so awesome and welcoming. Instantly made you feel like part of the family. Anytime you needed anything, it was never a drama. Plus the main bloke who runs the place, Matt, is super cute. Kind of a cross between a young Kelly Slater crossed with Mathew McConaughey, a real stallion. Would recommend the place to anyone who is going to Byron. Can't wait to go back.

    BEST hostel ever! This place was so much fun and it seriously feels like everyone is a part of one big family. You are made to feel so welcome and right at home from the moment you get there. Tents are clean and comfortable. Shuttle services are a nice touch. Toilets and showers were always kept clean. The night events were so much fun and a great way to get to know people. Would most definitely recommend this place for people that enjoy camping and having fun with like-minded people.

    The best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. The owners and staff are all well friendly, always inviting new comers for day and night outings. It’s very communal, and nice to be just out of the town to have some peace and quiet if wanted. Ten minute walk to one of the best beaches here. Toilets and showers were nice and clean as was the kitchen. Really cool outdoor set will definitely come back! 10/10 I recommend it to everyone coming to Byron bay.

    Definitely the best hostel I've stayed at, feels like home from the moment you walk in. Everyone is very social and the events each night make for a memorable week. Facilities are good and the transfer or walk to town is enjoyable. Stay here if you want memories for a lifetime

    I stayed 1 night at a hostel in the town and was very disappointed so I moved the next night to the aviary and was pleasantly surprised with my stay, I really enjoyed my time there and wish I could of stayed for longer! Josh the owner and his mate really know how to create a fun and welcoming environment as well as chill spaces. Would 100% stay again, really recommend staying here if you want to meet a cool group of people and get off your phone.

    Where do I even start with this place...... When i got to the hostel I didn't know what to expect, I booked for one night which was a MISTAKE... Ended up staying 2months and working there, no idea how it happened. The staff who then became colleagues went out their way to help you and all round awesome people. You're a 5 minute free shuttle away from town, there's always something going on at the hostel at night too, It's a nice safe place to be! Heads up though, you'll stay longer than planned.

    Only stayed here 2 nights, but really enjoyed our sleeves. WiFi was really fast and reached all around the campsite and the free breakfast was a really nice surprise. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend!

    Very Good

    Great concept. As long as you're prepared for camping, you'll love this. Luke the manager is superb, full of helpful tips. The breakfast is greatly appreciated. They do Have lockers but only a few so have to keep valuables with you. They have events on at night which is great although many of the guests are longterm so not very sociable. Highly recommended. A 30 min walk into Byron which I enjoyed. Good shower and toilet facilties. Something different and a good experience.

    Just not for us. Worse facilities than most camp sites I’ve ever visited (UK, Nz & Oz) Toilets were filthy. Kitchen is outside so all utensils get covered in blown sand etc. Not enough fridge space. Good points: free breakfast and probably the cheapest accommodation in Byron.
