Camping, a popular accommodation option when traveling, and particularly at The Arts Factory Lodge because set amongst the trees we have a small walk in campground. There is a communal kitchen area and girls and boys showers and toilets.
Living in the campsite at The Arts Factory Lodge is an amazing experience. It’s a great place to meet people and enjoy your time in Byron Bay.
At the campsite we have lots of different kinds of people – there are always creative people, making music, jewellery, and generally being arty, mostly with the aim to make a bit of money or just swapping things with each other.
With music being such a huge part of life at The Arts Factory Lodge there are many artists coming together to jam and create new bands. When they’ve created a new band they will often perform together in public the first time at our weekly Talent Show.
Also living at the campground are our great yoga teacher and drumming teacher who both run regular workshops here for our guests.
If anyone wants to stay at the campsite but doesn’t have their own tent then that’s no problem either, you just go down to the jungle hut say that you’re looking for a tent and more often than not there will be someone selling one. Some of the tents even look like small houses. These are mostly people who have been living in the campground for quite a while (months even).
These tents often have a sort of living room with a few bedrooms, a table made of stuff they found like a surfboard, wood, or something else – just name it and it will probably be there somewhere.
In the evenings the campers will sit together in the jungle hut, chilling, drinking goon and making music. The campsite is a big part of why The Arts Factory Lodge is so special because of the people who stay there. Of course, if there isn’t room at the campground when you first arrive then we do have lots of other accommodation options.
