A haven in the Byron Bay Hinterland, Blackbird is an architecturally-pleasing retreat, named in honour of the rare and Indigenous yellow-tailed black cockatoo that calls this mountain home (and The Beatles’ song). Located on a high cliff face in Mullumbimby – there are three pavilions that have been cleverly designed to face the ocean, while blocking out any other building that would obscure your view. Made of simple concrete panels, whitewashed ply, Moroccan tiles, rescued railway sleepers and concreting reo mesh, the pavilions are a beauty to look at, and an absolute dream to sleep in.
