Luxuriously converted dairy bails with fireplace
Set among 180 acres of picturesque Byron Bay hinterland on a family owned macadamia farm, The Dairy Nashua delivers luxury and country tranquility in spades. Situated on Tralisan Farm, approximately 600m from the estate’s elegant 4 bedroom Tralisan Farm main residence, The Dairy offers private, rustic luxury that’s perfect for a couple seeking an opportunity to relax, connect with nature and escape from the pace of daily life.
Originally Tralisan Farm’s milking shed, The Dairy has been lovingly converted into a New Zealand-inspired 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom home, reflecting the perfect balance of preserving its original architectural features, such as gorgeous timber paneling and cathedral pitch beams with thoughtful, contemporary and vintage inspired decor. With the dark and moody palette and textures, The Dairy combines a handsome kitchen, dining and living space, a large master bedroom and separate bathroom. The expansive glass doors in the living room ensure you soak in the breath-taking scenery and fresh country air whilst relaxing on the soft leather couch and lush vintage armchairs. During the evening, light up the fire pit, cook a feast on the BBQ and enjoy the star show.
Tralisan Farm’s boundary is surrounded by Skinners Creek on 3 sides. Guests are welcome to enjoy and explore the serene waterhole on the estate hidden away just beyond The Dairy (1km). Drive (4-wheel drives are recommended but not necessary unless after heavy rainfall) or take a stroll along the scenic track to the water and enjoy a refreshing dip and a picnic from this private and picturesque gem (please note, the area is not fenced and adult supervision is essential for minors).
The Dairy Nashua will have you at one with nature - a place to reconnect, rest and rejuvenate in style. Witness lavish landscapes combined with elegant decor that blends the finest of country and contemporary living. For those who love to shop and dine, discover the divine hospitality offered in the nearby historic villages of Bangalow, Newrybar and Federal. If you’re keen for a surf, hop in the car with Byron’s best beaches less than half an hour away.
For larger groups during peak season, book Tralisan Farm to include the lavish 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom residence - The Homestead - as well as The Dairy.
Please note, a privately tenanted residence is located off the road that links The Dairy with the estate’s Homestead residence. Farm vehicles also share this road, however, workers will not attend the properties to disturb guests during their stay.

Cooking and Dining
The Dairy’s striking all-black kitchen is a real head-turner. Set around a sleek island bench, which doubles as a dining table with bench seating, the contemporary cookery features dark-cabinetry and plenty of bench space, with a sizeable gas stove, oven and Nespresso coffee machine available to guests.

Thoughtful features of the original dairy have been retained throughout The Dairy’s bedroom, with exposed timber beams along the walls and roofline of this light and spacious room. A comfortable queen bed awaits guests, while a desk nook, flatscreen TV and a large antique timber wardrobe complete the space. The bedroom also connects to one of the verandahs, allowing you to lie in bed and take in the views.

The shower is a real stunner, tiled in large distinctive Italian black lava tiles with bronze fittings completing the look. The vanity is a restored vintage piece thoughtfully complemented by modern bronze tapware and a milky cement sink. The bathroom also includes louver windows, allowing for an abundance of natural light and fresh air to enter.
