Welcome to the Arts Factory Backpackers Lodge. We invite you to come and relax in our enchanted 5 acre, subtropical haven. Laze by the pool, swing in the hammocks and soak up the friendly atmosphere for which we are universally famous.

In the 70’s many hippies, local and international artist's created the ‘Arts Factory’! In the 80’s it was an internationally recognized rock and roll venue. The ‘Birthplace’ of much of the fame and spirit of Byron Bay, it still maintains that original spirit today.

Located only 10 minutes walk from the beach we offer a wide range of Groovy Accommodation or Funky Abodes, ranging from Teepees, Island Bungalows, Dorms, Doubles and even Jungle Camping.

Our Funky Workshops include Didgeridoo Making and Yoga. Join in a game of table tennis, basketball or volleyball. Jump in our Heated Pool or sweat it out in the Sauna. Hang out in hip Byron Bay or relax on the spectacular beaches only ten minutes walk away.

If you are musically inclined, come and record your songs in paradise at
Buzz Studio, the Arts Factory’s very own recording studio!

In the evening enjoy DJ’s, Bands, Fire Twirling Performances or the Zany Talent Show.

We are an integral part of the Arts Factory Village which incorporates the Historic Buddha Bar Restaurant, The Byron Lounge Cinema and Buddha Gardens Day Spa.

Don’t miss the ‘Experience of a Lifetime’ at this family owned and operated hostel. Come stay with us ...Relax, Rejuvenate, Recycle !
