Our Story

The Northern NSW shire of Byron Bay is a world-renowned mecca for its untouched, golden beaches, lush rolling hinterland and laid back lifestyle. It is this combination that has long since attracted a community of likeminded creative individuals who have now made the area their home.

Newrybar Merchants is a collective of some of these creative local artisans and curators of fine goods who are passionate about what they do. Honouring the space and the essence of the Byron Bay Hinterland, Newrybar Merchants enables customers to experience rustic charm effortlessly blended with sophistication within a beautiful and unique retail space.

The charming 1890s dwelling that houses the Newrybar Merchants is nestled in the historic town of Newrybar, 15 minutes drive from the beaches of Byron Bay. The dream for owners Zane Grier from Driftlab, Jules Packshaw and Danielle McEwan from Tigmi Trading and Shannon Fricke is to co-curate a collaborative concept store that brings like minded people with a passion for what they do together in a way that compliments the old world charm of the village. 

Newrybar Merchants provides an exciting addition to the already bustling village of Newrybar which features the renowned Harvest Restaurant & Deli and Driftlab.  It is a must-visit destination for those seeking a unique retail experience in one of the most beautiful parts of the world.
