Tooraloo Farm Stay
Tooraloo Farm Stay is the visionary creation of master fine artist Concetta Antico, world famous for her gift of Tetrachromacy, the ability to see 100 million more colours than regular vision! It’s set just moments from the heart of beautiful Byron Bay, on what was once the McSwan Family’s generational dairy farm. An original 1900s Federation Farmhouse, it still stands as a testimony to golden days gone by. Locals and visitors alike claim the property boasts some of the best views in the Shire. Perfectly perched on a slight hill, it gazes straight down the heavenly Myocum Valley, making sunsets breathtaking!
Our Magical Grounds
Each of the unique accommodations – the Federation Residence, Historic Barnstay, Sunset Cottage and Swanky Shed – has been meticulously styled by Concetta, each a distinct take on her signature style of “Modern Muse Meets Heritage Charm” – read more about the restoration here.
Our pristine farmlands provide 12 serene acres of evergreen pastures. An inground swimming pool, rustic cabana, gas BBQ hut, fire pit, peacock tea house, ancient fig tree portals, rose and native gardens, citrus orchard and plenty of farm animals to adore are just a few of Tooraloo’s amenities and treasures.
Our Unrivalled Locale
Our fortunate geographical proximity to every major town and attraction makes it the ultimate Byron Bay accommodation and event destination. On a clear day even the Byron lighthouse can be spied from the entertainment area, which is a real treat! A skip off the M1 turnoff, it is a mere 6km from Byron’s Main Beach, minutes from Mullumbimby, Bangalow and Brunswick, and only walking distance to the famed “The Farm” – a morning’s stroll to the fresh-baked goodies at “Bread Social.”
Known as ‘The Colour Queen,’ Concetta Antico is a master oil painter and the world’s first artist with scientifically confirmed tetrachromacy – a rare genetic mutation allowing her to see up to 100 million colours, and making her hyper-coloured art sought-after globally. She is also a passionate arts educator, having taught more than xxx students the joys and techniques of oil painting t
Having recently returned home to Australia after a decades-long successful art career in California, she lives on the estate in her private Visionary Villa – tours of her artist’s studio and collections are available by arrangement. The Concetta Antico Gallery, with more of Concetta’s works as well as a rotating collection of local emerging artists, can be found just minutes from Tooraloo on the main street of bohemian Bangalow.
