Had an amazing two nights here, the setting was breathtaking and the views to die for. The Eco pavillion was just what we needed for a relaxing break away. John and Sue were fantastic hosts and the meals they provided were stunning making use of the fresh produce from their garden. One afternoon we had a the joy of meeting... More

Spent 5 weeks traveling around oz and NZ; this was by far the best and most relaxing. If you like to be away from the tourist traps this is the place. Nimbin is worth a visit but you could just spend all your time chilling in a top notch tent watching the wildlife and enjoying the silence. Glamping at its... More

I loved everything about Silk Pavilions. I travelled around Australia and New Zealand for 5 weeks and this was by far my favourite place to stay. Sue made us feel so welcome...like a family member, not a client/customer. The eco-pavilions are wonderful. Extremely comfortable and homely...even posher than glamping! Having the shower outside is such a lovely, but nothing beats... More

My husband and I held our wedding reception and ceremony here in November 2013 and absolutely loved everything about this venue! We looked at about a dozen wedding venues from Sunshine Coast to Byron Bay, the freedom of choice, the setting and also the hosts Sue and John is what led us to choose Silk Pavilions as the spot we...

Silk pavilions are set in a truly stunning location but with that comes wildlife... The villas at first glance are beautiful and well equipped however we soon found out that it was dusty and the roof design allows all wildlife to enjoy your villa too. We are from the city so we are not exposed to many spiders, cockroaches, wasps,... More

Sorry to hear Nuala, that you had a few problems with our COUNTRY creatures!! Sometimes coming from the city to the country is a little overwhelming. As hard as we try each and every day to make our Villa and our Eco Pavilions – "creature free" it is often just out of our control. So we do apologise and shall... More

My now husband and I have stayed at Silks a couple of times - in an Eco cabin and in the Thai villa. It's great to have two very different options with unique luxury feels on the one well-kept and beautiful property. If you are interested, you can experience a personal feel by getting to know Sue and John, you'll... More

John and Sue Done were wonderful hosts. Upon our arrival we were greeted with a glass of champagne so we could sit down and view the most amazing northern NSW border ranges. We opted to dine in each evening and were served fabulous meals with huge portions. Our glam ping experience was fabulous. Besides beautiful surroundings our King Size bed... More

Really enjoyed our Glamping experience at Silk Pavilions. It is a unique concept and the owners have set the Eco Pavilions (tents) fantastically well. Our Eco tent had a super comfortable bed, chandelier, ensuite with flushing toilet and the best shower ever! A hooded bbq, huge daybed, coffee table and comfy chairs were on the front verandah. There is also... More
