  • We are 45 – 50 minutes drive from either Gold Coast or Byron/Ballina airports, and 12 minutes from Mullumbimby. Settlement Rd is an un-sealed gravel road. You do not need a 4WD or SUV, but we recommend you navigate it slowly, especially if you are in a 2WD vehicle, or are arriving for the first time at night. Parts of the road, which is steep in parts, are very rough (scheduled to be graded early 2019). Do use GPS and/or Google/Apple maps entering 261 Settlement Rd Main Arm. 2 kms along Settlement road you will keep following the road at the large fig tree veering LEFT, the road then rises sharply. You’ve only got a few hundred metres before you will come across the property gate.

  • Two and a half kilometres along Settlement Road look out for an ‘Altitude 261’ sign on the left just in front an electronic gate and start of the concrete driveway.
