Welcome to the Tin Horse Ranch!

Family-friendly holiday home with outdoor pool and spa tub
This is truly a special place. David first fell in love with the Tin Horse Ranch nine years ago when he and a group of friends came up for a summer holiday. The same group kept returning and spent many holidays as guests enjoying what it has to offer. David is now the owner of this unique historical part of the Byron hinterland and he divides his time between Sydney and the Tin Horse Ranch. This is truly a special place for David and he welcomes you to share and enjoy it as he does. This same group still return every year.
Set on 33 beautiful acres the Tin Horse Ranch offers one of the best private farm stays in the Byron Hinterland. The property is rich in history, known as the The River Valley Ranch it was a working rodeo ranch in the mid last century. Working horse stables are still on the property. With views of valleys, fields and mountains, premium accommodation and facilities, the Tin Horse Ranch is sure to impress.

A piece of Paradise
Delightful all the way round. Extremely well equipped kitchens, lovely beds and linens, beautiful grounds so well kept, ample space for a big group, and checkin process was a breeze. Truly an ideal venue to do retreat or large gatherings. I’ll be booking again in the future!

5/5 Excellent

Boys Weekend Away
Group of 15 boys away for 4 nights in Mid March 2021. Booking process & communication was fantastic. The property itself was impressive, catered to all our needs and we would definitely stay here again. Unfortunately there was freak flooding & torrential rain during our stay and due to the location we had difficulties getting in and out of the property to local areas like Byron & Ballina, so something to be mindful of when looking at the location and transportation needs.
