Sugar Beach Ranch Bungalows, South Ballina

4 people
No pets
Sugar Beach Ranch sits on 60 acres with two self-contained bungalows for you to enjoy peace, privacy, and idyllic country life (nearest neighbours 3kms away). A 50 metre walk to the beach, use of our 15 m pool, a journey across the car ferry, Ballina, Byron, Bangalow, and waterfalls are all within a 30-minute car trip. Wake up to songs of native birds. Bring your horse (horse accommodation available on request) guitar, or your writing book and loll away the hours nurturing your soul in paradise.

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.

Chris’s wife, Caroline, and 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 ‘nature's 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.

Additional Information

The bungalows are located at the top of the driveway providing direct access to the pool and beach. The main house is located nearby.

We are an operating farm with horses, chickens and pigeons.
There are dogs on the property to protect the chickens from predators.

Enjoy Sugar Beach Ranch with your horse and bring them along for the holiday. Paddock accommodation available at present with stables in the coming months.

As we are located in the sleepy cane fields of South Ballina, there is limited access to shops and cafes/restaurants etc.

The Burns Point Ferry - runs from 5.30am till 12.30 pm daily, consistently running back and forth. Approximately 8min journey each way - so you can easily go into Ballina town for all shops, entertainment, and cafes/restaurants etc.

If the ferry isn't for you, you can drive to Ballina via Wardell.

Sugar Beach Ranch is a special place.... a place of relaxation and reflection.

We want guests to enjoy the break away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. This venue is not for guests wishing to party...

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. Chris’s wife, Caroline and 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. Chris is greatly missed, however, having worked with her father for many years, Chris’s eldest daughter Stevey Arena, has taken the reins as Managing Director for the Murphy Petrol Group, and is continuing the legacy of her father. Chris recognised the opportunity to promote the creative potential of Australia's Northern Rivers at a global level. This is the driving force behind opening up Sugar Beach Ranch for people to enjoy this special place and at the same time, contribute to the local economy and enhance the area.
