In the mood to dine out with a platter board? During the summer months, we love nothing more than drifting from the beach and snacking on a cheeseboard full of yummy nibbles. Add a glass of wine or a refreshing gin and tonic and we’re in vacay heaven!
We’ve put together a tried and tested guide to the best eateries serving up delicious cheese platter boards in Byron Bay and the hinterlands beyond.
Il buco is a charming, authentic Italian restaurant tucked away on Bay Lane in the centre of Byron Bay. The Burrata antipasto board is a must-have starter before tucking into their melt-in-your-mouth woodfired pizzas. Il Buco is BYO so feel free to bring along your favourite bottle of vino.

Loft Byron Bay
Loft Byron Bay on Jonson Street has the perfect relaxed vibes for sunset with sun-soaked views of Main Beach. There’s an extensive drinks menu offering a range of cocktails, wines and beers. The chefs have four deli platter boards to choose from – charcuterie board, cheese board, mixed deli board and the chef’s seasonal selection board.

The Ploughman’s Board at Eltham Pantry is really something special. Feast on charred sourdough, hummus, locally cured meats, pickles, local cheeses, olives & chefs extras. All set in the stunning hinterland oasis of Eltham.

Husk Distillery is the home of Ink Gin and is also is Australia’s very first paddock to bottle Agricole Rum Distillery. Nestled among the rolling lush hills of Northern Rivers hinterland in Tumbulgum; the farmland distillery is a beautiful backdrop to enjoy a platter board, G&T or a Rum spritz. Dine in at the cellar door or graze in the sunshine on the picnic blankets on the lawn.
