Sugar Beach Ranch sits on 60 acres of unspoilt east coast beauty with endless deserted white sandy beaches, eagles soaring overhead, whales breaching on the doorstep and beautiful native coastal vegetation.
Sugar Beach Ranch was the beloved home of CM Murphy, a music maverick, entrepreneur and visionary. Chris' life has been a colourful journey; being thrust into the music industry at a young age, through to his success in managing INXS to international stardom and beyond. His tenacity and vision unparalleled. Sadly, in January 2021, Chris succumbed to a rare form of cancer and passed away at his beloved Sugar Beach Ranch in South Ballina.
The Murphy Family have decided to open
the big white gates at Sugar Beach Ranch
and share the beauty which Chris often
referred to as ‘natures playground’.
Chris and the family spent
hours riding horses on the beach,
raced pigeons, wrote books and built a
thriving egg farm as they lived their
Surfing Cowboys lifestyle.
Permeating every element of Sugar Beach Ranch is the indelible memory of CM Murphy : entrepreneur, rock promoter, dreamer, nature’s son, surfing cowboy.
