Pete Evans buys Byron Bay hinterland retreat

Pete Evans now owns two properties an hour drive from Byron Bay.

Chef and former My Kitchen Rules judge Pete Evans and his wife, Nicola Robinson, have spent $1 million on a health retreat north west of Byron Bay.

The Mount Warning Forest Hideaway, also known as Hideaway House, at 460 Byrrill Road, Byrrill Creek, spreads 7.93 hectares, in a valley.

The tourism investment includes eight studios – two configured with two bedrooms, and none with mobile and television reception, or internet.

There is also a 15 year old three bedroom home, separate garage and workshop, saltwater pool and small macadamia plantation.

The vendors listed it in early 2017.

It previously traded for $835,000 in 2011 (story continues below).

Pete Evans and Nicola Robinson have paid $1m for a Byron Bay Hinterland retreat.

Mr Evans, 48, runs a healing clinic – Evolve Health Labs – in central Byron Bay.

The couple recently moved to Round Mountain, a 10ha estate near Pottsville, about 50km east of Byrrill Creek, which cost $1.2m in 2015 (and was where they married a year later).

The pair banked $3.26m last September offloading their modern Malabar, Sydney, family home.

Real Estate of Distinction Byron Bay’s Janis Perkins marketed Mount Warning Forest Hideaway.

The eight cabins don’t have mobile or television reception.
