Newrybar is home to abundant agriculture, macadamia farms, cane fields and coffee plantations stretching inland from the coast across this fertile region.

A five-minute drive will put sand between your toes at the glorious beaches of Broken Head which offer world-renowned surfing, superb fishing, stunning headland walks and the escapism of Broken Head Nature Reserve.

Newrybar is a hidden gem, bisected by the Pacific Highway and often overlooked by tourists and locals alike. The award-winning Harvest restaurant and café is a favourite culinary escape, just one in a small parade of rustic businesses including an antique treasure trove, a stylish clothing boutique and Harvest’s indulgent bakery and delicatessen.

With it’s own public primary school, Newrybar is a quaint, family-oriented community, honesty boxes overflowing with fresh, local produce lining its main thoroughfare. With the Pacific Highway on its doorstep and Bangalow just a few short minutes’ drive away, Newrybar residents are never far from all the services and infrastructure of a thriving community.

The retail and commercial township of Ballina, and its airport, are just 20 minutes south along the highway, while the Gold Coast Airport lies less than an hour north.

To the west of the Pacific Highway, Newrybar stetches into lush, wooded farmland and winding, country roads. The spectacular Killen Falls, a secluded local secret, is a favourite spot for summer day picnics and stunning strolls.
