The drive from The GC is stunning. If you enjoy nature & The divine with an opportunity for some spiritual input the large crystals and books will inspire. Beautiful views, healthy nutritious dining and plenty of magical places to skip and enjoy the peace and serenity .

Scenic Lookout
“Minyon Falls (45 min drive from Magnolia Studio) Minyon Falls is one of the largest in the area, located in Nightcap National Park. A short walk from the carpark is the viewing platform, overlooking the falls and the national park. After rain, the falls are spectacular and definitely worth bringing your camera! If you’re looking for a full day adventure, the Minyon Falls walking track allows you to wander through the forest, past beautiful creeks leading to the bottom of the waterfall. The track is 13km return, so be prepared with plenty of food and water to last you throughout the day. ”

“Visit the most easterly point of Australia. The Lighthouse walk is a scenic hike that winds through rainforest, beach, grassland and cliff tops, ending at the Cape Byron Lighthouse. Keep an eye out for Wallabies, Dolphins and bird life. Take your swimming gear and stop off at Wategos for a swim on the way back. A 3.7km loop.”

Australian Restaurant
“It’s a must visit, not only because they are environmentally superior in every way, but the bakery is a joint venture with The Bread Social and the Jam donuts and custard tarts are fuck off amazing. The restaurant are the lads from Three Blue Ducks and the food never disappoints. Expect queues and crowds here but worth checking out true sustainability in action. Pigs are the best 🐖”

Natural Feature
“Protected beach that has great swimming, amenities, frequented by a local pod of dolphins on any given day. This is a place for the rich and famous, a great spot to start the famous lighthouse walk to the most Easterly point in Australia, 100's of people walk this track daily, not for the faint of heart, lots of stairs. Saturday Mornings from 6am the 440 running club do laps of the Wategos hill if you are a fitness freak. Great accommodation and the renowned award winning Rae's on Wategos Restaurant for a posh lunch, or the outside downstairs now has cocktails and light snacks.”
