Coorabella, the Byron Bay hinterland estate that hosted Margot Robbie's 2016 wedding to British film director Tom Ackerley, has been snappily sold for $6.2 million.

The Coorabell property had a listing price of $6.5 million, but vendor, the Love & Hatred luxury jewellery founder Giovanni D'Ercole, was happy to take the strong offer just 26 days in, a very quick sale in Byron Bay trophy home sale terms.

Coorabella has been owned by D'Ercole for the last 25 years but he recently swapped the hinterland for the beach, spending $4.3 million on the Brownell Drive dress circle near Wategos.

The property, which is surrounded by lush rainforest and green valleys, 13 kilometres inland from Byron, ranks among the district's top five hinterland sales when sold through Real Estate of Distinction Byron Bay selling agent Ku Darroch.

The property has frontage to the Wilson River, along with large deep swimming holes and a waterfall.

The transformed Queenslander-style homestead has four bedrooms, four bathrooms and two study.

It has towering 14 foot ceilings with original pressed-tin finishes, textured leadlight window panels and an open fireplace.

Wrap around verandahs overlook the grounds and a 15 metre swimming pool. 

Many wedding have been held there including the Brisbane-born actress and former model Jacinda Barrett who was the first celebrity to eye the 23 hectare property private enough for a celebrity wedding.

She married the American actor, Suits star Gabriel 'Harvey' Macht in 2004. The pair were in attendance at the Royal Wedding earlier this year given their connection to Meghan Markle.

Barrett and Macht have reportedly offered up their Sunshine Coast property to the Royal couple when they shortly visit Australia.

As well as a popular wedding destination for the stars, Coorabella was the setting for the 1992 movie FernGully:The Last Rainforest.
