Situated on 60 acres of unspoilt coastline, just 40 minutes south of Byron Bay, Sugar Beach Ranch, also known as ‘nature’s playground’, is one of the Northern Rivers most secluded treasures. 


The destination boasts white sandy beaches as far as the eye can see, an abundance of wildlife to awaken your senses and front row seats to witness the celebrated migrating humpback whales breaching on its doorsteps.

Once home to the late Chris ‘CM’ Murphy, a legend in the Australian music industry, the ranch is now under the loving watch of his eldest daughter, Stevey Arena, her husband Nick and their two children, driven to keep his legacy alive and provide ever growing support to the community.


As a fully equipped horse ranch, with options for horse stays, it’s also pioneering its way into the growing field of equine assisted therapy and wellness. The team of qualified therapists and horse trainers come with a wealth of industry knowledge, working symbiotically to provide excellence in animal welfare as well as human care and development. Sugar Beach Ranch strives to provide a safe and wholesome environment for all walks of life.
