Our Partners

With a little help from our friends

We don't just partner with anyone. We collaborate with people and organisations who share similar values, align with our mission and want to work with us to create the most remarkable experiences for you, our guests. 

Here are our current partners:



Crystalbrook Collection has partnered with EarthCheck, the world’s leading scientific benchmarking, certification, and advisory group, to help create a more sustainable tourism industry. Together we will work to cut down greenhouse gas emissions, improve energy efficiencies, reduce waste, and enhance ecosystem conservation.

Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef

We are a Founding Citizen and ongoing partner of the Citizens of Great Barrier Reef. Spearheaded by Earth Hour founder, Andy Ridley, Citizens of Great Barrier Reef is a social movement designed to change consumer understanding of how everyday actions have an impact on the Great Barrier Reef and overall environment.

Become a Citizen and #UniteForTheReef.

Ocean conservation isn't just for the grown-ups. SpongeBob SquarePants invites kids to join his Reef Squad and become Junior Citizens of the Reef so he can introduce them to a whole new world under the sea and teach them about ocean conservation. 


OzHarvest is the first perishable food rescue organisation in Australia that collects quality excess food from more than 2,000 commercial outlets and delivers it, direct and free of charge, to more than 800 charities.

Crystalbrook Byron works with OZHarvest to collect unused food and distribute to segments of the community where it is most needed.


TerraCycle is an innovative recycling company that has become a global leader in recycling hard-to-recycle materials. 

We have partnered with TerraCycle to provide a zero-waste approach to coffee capsules. This allows guests to enjoy quality Nespresso coffee without the guilt of what happens to the pod. Through TerraCycle, used pods and mechanically and/or manually separated into metals, organics and plastics. Metals are melted so they may be recycled. The organics (such as the coffee grounds) are composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be moulded into new recycled plastic products.

Plastic Free Byron

Crystalbrook Byron works closely with the Plastic Free Byron team to help us reduce the six key single-use plastic items which represent the most problematic and prolific sources of the litter stream. These items are; water bottles, foodware (cutlery, cups, plates etc.), straws, coffee cups/lids, takeaway containers and plastic bags.

University of Newcastle

Crystalbrook Kingsleys partnership with the University of Newcastle includes a four year Environmental Scholarship funded by Crystalbrook Kingsley, which will be granted to four students over the next four years with a strong passion for waste utilisation.

Green Eco Technology

Crystalbrook Kingsley engaged with Green Eco Technologies to minimise the impact of organic waste on the environment. Green Eco Technology's WasteMaster has been installed at Crystalbrook Kingsley to allow the conversion and re-purposing of food waste as a reusable resource. This recycling technology diverts food and other organic waste from landfill, from being flushed into the sewer system or incinerated, reducing future damaging effects on our environment including greenhouse gas emissions.

Bottle Cycler

Glass in an amazing material that can be infinitely recycled, but often isn’t as it can be challenging for hospitality venues to manage the removal and disposal of it. Crystalbrook Kingsley has installed the Bottle Cycler to ensure we are managing our glass waste as effectively as possible. Every glass bottle that goes through a BottleCycler machine gets recycled back into a new glass container again. This incredible company is continuing to innovate in this space with the goal of leading the resource revolution for glass, where no glass is ever wasted.

Shane's Seafood

Sourcing local, fresh and sustainably caught seafood is a key priority for Roundhouse and Crystalbrook Kingsley. The fishermen who work with Shane’s Seafood line-catch and deliver fish each day, while the fishmongers inspect and ensure the quality of the produce. All seafood is caught off NSW East Coast, with majority of what is served coming from Nelson Bay.

Shane’s Seafood and Roundhouse have also coordinated delivery in tubs, with no single use packaging and the tubs are returned for re-use to further our commitment to sustainability.
