Queensland racing identity Tony Quinn and wife Christina have spent $3.4 million in Byron Bay.

The entrepreneurial Main Beach Gold Coast rich-lister secured the retreat in the town's dress circle in an off-market deal.

Set a few roads back from Clarke's Beach, the home sits on 530 square metres.

It has four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Seven metre wide concertina glass timber doors open to an expansive deck.

Excluding Byron's bookend beaches, Belongil and Wategos, the sale is the highest price within the tow for eight months.

Tony and Christina made their fortune initially from their VIP Petfoods empire, selling it for $410 million to Quadrant Private Equity and then buying Darrell Lea confectionery.

They spent $25 million on the iconic Australian confectionary company Darrell Lea, selling it earlier this year for around $200 million.

They own a $2.62 million apartment on Main Beach in the Axis building.

The Quinns are no strangers to buying and selling Queensland property, but this is their first known NSW acquisition.

They also own two motorsport racetracks in New Zealand where he hopes to build a world-class golf course along with residential development.
