fig tree story
It all started with a simple dream back in 1979: to convert the original Fig Tree farmhouse into a restaurant, to cook from the land & seas that surround Byron, and to raise a family. Throughout the years, over the decades & through the generations, we have continued this vision.
Now in our 5th decade, the Fig Tree has evolved into an iconic place to dine, where first dates, family celebrations, birthdays & weddings are celebrated and memories are created. Our Fig Tree family continues to grow & evolve but we still continue to honour its legacy & founding vision.
We look forward to welcoming you to your table.
We remain true to our beginnings; food is grown in our own garden and orchards, and is lovingly prepared in our family kitchen.
Garden to Table
A commitment to community and sustainability is at the centre of the Fig Tree ethos. With established roots in the Northern Rivers community, we take pride in our long-standing relationships with local growers and farmers, who provide us with ethical, local produce to complement our own, all year round.
Our investment in the story behind the ingredients we prepare creates a deep connection, love, and respect for everything we serve.
