About Us

Come and explore
The gateway to the Rainbow Region

Welcome to Terania Creek in north-east NSW, 30 minutes from Lismore and 45 minutes from Byron Bay. Halfway between The Channon village and Protestor Falls, enjoy exotic accommodation set amidst native Australian rainforest. Rooms have views of Terania Creek. Abundant wildlife, including platypus, numerous native birds and rare butterflies abound. Large "billabong" (water hole) at your door step.


HAVAN'S Ecotourist Retreat is ideal for photographers and nature lovers. Platypus, wallabies, pythons, koalas and numerous birds and butterflies abound. A pristine water hole just at your doorstep and the sound of running water and birds all around you. We only cater for a limited number of guests who feel a sense of mystery and solace from surrounding Nature. Each guest is waited for, then waited on with a blend of Asian hospitality and European flair. For a real treat of both body and mind, for a Holy-day to remember... don't forget to knock on Havan's door.
