Wild Goat Events
Wild Goat Events knows a thing or two about creating unforgettable experiences. And we know how to do it with zero stress for you.
So put down that planner and close your spreadsheet, because the experts are in town. Our events take your passion and vision, combine them with our own, and place them firmly in the hands of vendors who cherish every moment of their work. We collaborate with the best of the best, so you’ll have the event you’ve always dreamed of – just up a notch.
Wild Goat Events is passionate about the space we work in, at Byron Bay’s most coveted location. We’re also passionate about the ethos this town embraces, so we work to protect the natural world around us. Our events are sustainable and reflect the unique allure of this beautiful area, in the heart of the pristine Arakwal National Park. Imagine your dream event on our gorgeous canvas, nothing marred, nothing compromised. That’s what we do – and what we love doing.
We play host to only a select number of sunrise and sunset wedding ceremonies, romantic proposals and corporate events per year, to ensure each client receives our undivided attention – and are guaranteed the best experience possible. We are also proud to launch our signature ‘Toast the Sun’ breakfast experience, offering visitors a unique way to experience Australia’s most easterly sunrise, in a relaxed and intimate setting.
The Wild Goat
For years, Cape Byron played host to a herd of wild goats, who were spotted on the headland after being introduced by a lightkeeper back in the early 1900s. Their constant presence was beloved by the Byron locals, who took it somewhat personally when the goats were removed from the Cape’s fragile cliff face, but one legend, the elusive Wategoat, remained.
Some say she’s still wandering the cliffs, hidden out of view; others say she’s moved on to greener pastures. Wherever she may be – and whether she’ll emerge on a breezy summer’s day – she remains an icon, cherished by those who remember the herd mingling along the grassy knolls.
Wild, free, and a bit feisty, the Cape Byron wild goat is our namesake for being everything a good event should be.
