Visitors to Byron Bay will be able to try something truly unique this summer with Flash Camp bringing its full service pop-up hotel to town.

For those who won’t be able to get a flashy tent in Sydney, sixty fully furnished Flash Tents will be setup from 18 December to 8 January on an exclusive site at the northern end of Byron Holiday Park in Byron Bay.

A stylishly furnished communal lounge area will offer a place for guests to relax and socialise, while Harvest’s pop-up restaurant and licensed bar will serve breakfasts and drinks daily, along with share table dinners and events on select evenings.


Flash Camp CEO, Cameron Arnold, who also runs Apartments Inn Byron, says the pop-up hotel will cater to the demand for extra accommodation during the peak season, and offer visitors a unique Byron holiday experience.

“This pop-up hotel will be an opportunity to connect with nature in a truly relaxing and comfortable camp, with hotel-style service”

“You’ll be just a few minutes from the beach, and when you’re not there, you could be enjoying a Harvest cocktail, in between afternoon naps in the comfort of your tent,” he said.

Each Flash Tent comes fully furnished with comfortable king and single beds, quality bed linen, fresh towels, Armadillo & Co rugs, bamboo furniture, Biology Skin toiletries and a host of other creature comforts.

Guests will also have access to brand new onsite toilet and shower facilities at Byron Holiday Park, that will be serviced regularly.

“The idea is that you can just turn up with your bags, and we take care of the rest,” said Cameron. Harvest, which has its award-winning restaurant in Newrybar, is planning a series of share table dinners and events at Flash Camp, with gourmet barbequed meat, freshly shucked oysters, paella and margaritas set to make an appearance on the menu.

“We’re excited to be part of this pop-up hotel at Byron Holiday Park and bring Harvest to Flash Camp,” said Harvest Co-Owner, Tristan Grier.

“It will be a fantastic opportunity to get creative with our menu, have a bit of fun and ultimately provide an unforgettable guest experience,” he said.

Gerald Searle, Manager of Byron Holiday Park, says he is thrilled to welcome Flash Camp to the northern part of the Park.

“We have been redeveloping the Park over the past year since we bought the business and the addition of Flash Camp over the Christmas break adds another level of experience for customers to enjoy.”

Cameron says the pop-up hotel will be the first of many more to come. “Byron is where Flash Camp originates from and we’re excited to offer this longer term pop-up hotel in collaboration with Harvest. This is just the start of many pop-up hotels in the pipeline,” he said. Flash Camp Byron Bay rates start at $230 per tent, per night, including a Harvest breakfast for two. Family options are also available.
