Hiking to the summit of Mount Warning, which towers over nearby Murwillumbah, at dawn has long-been a "must do" for anyone visiting the north coast of New South Wales. Christened "Wollumbin", meaning "cloud catcher", by the Bundjalung people who inhabited the region before European settlement, it is the first place on the Australian mainland to be kissed by the morning sun.
I know it is one of the most rewarding and challenging climbs. But times have changed and these days out of respect for Bundjalung law and culture, you're asked to consider choosing not to climb the cone-shaped peak. As an alternative to the Summit Walk, the tourist office suggests you stroll along the 200m Lyrebird Track. While the Lyrebird Track certainly has its attractions, in my opinion you're better off hiking to Pinnacle Lookout in the nearby Border Ranges National Park. It offers some of the most spectacular views of the peak from anywhere along the coast.
Thanks to myriad designers and innovative boutiques, Byron Bay has become the favourite stomping ground for many cashed-up young fashionistas. For the best buys, skip busy Jonson Street, which is starting to resemble a strip mall thanks to a line of tiresome chain stores, and take a wander down Fletcher Street, where you'll find an eclectic mix of fashions. In Sweet Papillon, local jewellery designer Nicole Sharratt creates exquisite, one-off, hand-made pieces. For home-grown labels such as Sass & Bide and Alice McCall, Madam Pompidou is the place to shop, while nearby Byron Hunter stocks all the best international brands.
If it's hidden local designers, unusual handmade items and unconventional treasures you're seeking then head out of town to Byron's Arts and Industry Estate. Here you'll find innovate shops like Slingfings and Bird on Banksia Drive, which prove that fashion can be sustainable using recycled fabrics and materials to create a funky range of handbags, garments and homewares. In keeping with the "green" ethos of their designs, both companies run on solar energy.
Head for the hills
Most people who tear up (or down) the Pacific Highway to northern NSW rarely take their eyes off the gleaming sands and blue waters of the coast to see what lies beyond the tarmac. From verdant valleys, peaceful villages, ancient rainforests and craggy escarpments, the north coast's hinterland is taking over Byron Bay as the new Promised Land. So turn off the highway and explore some of the back roads.
My favourite route follows the Bangalow Road through Bangalow and Clunes to Lismore, then following Dunoon Road detouring to The Channon and returning via Uki — stopping at the Mount Warning Pub for a drink — and Murwillumbah to the Pacific Highway.
During some of the months you will enjoy the unique opportunity to go whale watching! Often there are many dolphins around and there is great surf to be found in the area! Feeling a little more active? I have river kayak, surfboard, boogie board, donation are welcome
We are very close to an amazing lookout! 5 min walk.
About the House
Recently there have been lots of inquiries about the house. It is a two story house and I have added a few rooms underneath where you will be staying. There is tonnes of room, kitchen, bar, 1 room w/ a queen bed, 2 separate areas w/ single beds and day bed area. All new and decorated with my aboriginal artwork. There is heating and internet available also! And I do offer art, meditation, and Breatharian classes. And I also give a good local point of view on the good things to go do. It is a very open living area so for winter you need to bring an extra jumper :)
Please note: Due to the height/open layout, my house is unfortunately not suitable for adventurous children under the age of 10. They tend to be great climbers and I would hate to see them exposed to any danger at all.
welcome to enjoy garden

If you consider yourself old or stairs is hard, sorry this Treehouse is not for you, and remember winter time can be cold. But if you are looking for a fun and different experience, you find it.
There is no real big rules other than what's not included in the amenities. You can pretty much do whatever you want except for parties/ loud noises or music at night because I live upstairs. Also no pets or children under 10 years old, Thanks!!

Kim's place was absolutely gorgeous, we arrived late at night but Kim had ensured it was all set up and everything we needed was easy to find. I felt at home immediately. The place itself is just divine, it's uniqueness made it such a joy to stay there. My boyfriend and I were having a romantic weekend away from Sydney and we couldn't have found a place more special. It was perfect. Kim was lovely and respected our privacy, we hardly heard a peep from him until we were packing to leave. Would definitely stay again - I've been recommending it to anyone who'll listen since!
This little house is quite the escape! I absolutely loved it and it's charm and spectacular views. Kim is a very kind host. I hope to make it back.
Kim was very welcoming and his tree house comfortable but definitely a summer home due to its indoor outdoor layout. A peaceful location and a fun place to stay.
Kim's treehouse was amazing! It was nice to take a break and relax for a little while. The views were amazing and location wise it was pretty good 20 minute walk to the beach and 15 to the town. Kim was a very god host. Overall it was a really good stay.
Lions lookout was a great place to relax and unwind- quirky, rustic an comfortable. Kim was very friendly and welcoming on arrival and we had a great chat about bamboi.
Would highly recommend the Lions Lookout Treehouse. Kim made us feel very welcome and we had the most wonderful time! The space itself was very different, nothing like anywhere we've stayed before. It was private, yet had beautiful open views and had lots of nooks to relax in, read a book or take a nap! The house was a short walk from the local shops and was perfect to take day trips to Byron Bay and other surrounding towns by car. A truly beautiful place to stay, highly recommend to anyone looking to relax and recharge!

About the Host, Kim
The love Guru, Kim Philipsen, Is now doing workshops, in drawing, meditation, mindful living, show ways in stoping anger, fear, hunger, stop sickness, slow down ageing. Learn to control your mind, and your addictions. Find happiness and freedom. Beat the system, avoid the dishes, and grumpy people, open your eyes and ears, find the beauty everywhere. LOVE IS ALL WE NEED.
In 1964 the stars were shining bright, and a handsome little devil was born. Danish artist Kim Philipsen's greatest love is capturing the spirit, in the face of Natives. Kim moved to Spain at the age of 12 where he met many artists. He realised that he wanted to become a portrait artist. 21 years young, Kim went to the Philippines where he met master artist Rick Gonzales. Kim and Rick became great friends, and Kim studied there for 4 years drawing and painting still life, landscapes, seascapes, and so on, and so Kim learned, as they did in the old days. It was easy to travel with pen and paper, and when Kim was in need of money, he did a portrait.
For 15 years he went all over the World, having a good time, doing his art, and enjoying every moment. It was during these travels that Kim would happen upon the right face at the right time and deliver a stunning portrait. Today, Kim is no longer living amongst the starving artists but rather chooses to call the community of Byron Bay, on the North coast of Australia, his home. Kim has had 2 galleries in the past, but now enjoys doing his art from home or while travelling.
My interest these days spirituality, love, white light, light food, fruit, dancing gardening, reading, swimming, walking, travelling, smiling, and must more.
