The Hatch Farm - Port Macquarie

23 sites · RVs, Tents150 acres · The Hatch, NSW
Welcome to Port Macquarie's 'The Hatch Farm'; a pet friendly, interactive animal and fishing farm stay! A 150-acre working farm with a stunning outlook over the saltwater Maria River (with a rustic boat ramp and waterway running into the Hastings River). Located on the Mid North Coast NSW, 4kms off the Pacific Highway, and a quick 13/15-minute drive to the holiday township of Port Macquarie. Port Macquarie is known for its beautiful beaches, coastal scenery and walks, koala hospital, and local strawberry and tomato picking. Bernard and Susan are custodians of the farm, primarily using the land for poultry (egg), pig, and goat farming. They are transitioning to an off-grid and eco-friendly lifestyle for their retirement. The Hatch Farm is home to many animals, most of whom are rescues - including border collies, cavalier king charles spaniels, chickens, ducks, pigs, sheep, goats, miniature horses, cows, cats, rabbits, and guinea pigs. There is plenty to do and see around the farm from complete relaxation, interacting with the friendly animals (there is usually a variety of babies to cuddle!), to casting a line or launching your boat from the rustic boat ramp. Friendly pets welcome.

Bellingen and Coffs Harbour are easily accessed via major roads and are approx 30mins away The property is surrounded by natural bush and backs onto a state forest. Wildlife abound including a resident family of wallabies, birds (we have counted about 7 rare/threatened species), frogs and many more. You are guaranteed to feel relaxed and in touch with nature.

Under Cover Area: All campers have access to a large undercover area (Wallabies Rest) where there is a picnic table, fire place and preparation bench, unless booked by other campers. Fires: Small fires are welcome, just make a spot where you see fit with the fire rings provided. Wood can be collected from the bush areas or purchased from the wood shed.

Help on the Farm: There are always jobs to do, let us know if you would like to help out in exchange for staying. Mobile Coverage: There is mobile coverage near by but there is not much coverage at the property, just enough to send a text if you re in the right spot and have the right provider, keep an eye on how many bars you have on your way in and where the last place is you have coverage in-case you need it. Things Near-By Lots of beaches, National Parks, Urunga Lido, Nambucca V-Wall, shopping centres, cafes, fuel. Further afield is Coffs Harbour Big Banana, Bellingen, Waterfalls at Dorrigo.

Camping near Crescent Head with wifi provided guide

Overview

Crescent Head is a small, laid-back beach town on New South Wales’ Mid North Coast that’s a favourite with surfers—but otherwise relatively undeveloped. North of Port Macquarie and off the main road to Coffs Harbour and Queensland, many travellers bypass Crescent Head when driving north because it requires a short detour south. But that’s great news for campers who want to enjoy the chilled out atmosphere without the tourist development of many equally pretty beach towns. Stay at simple beachside campsites strung along the coast or head to nearby national parks.

Where to go

Goolawah National Park

Just south of Crescent Head, the small Goolawah National Park is almost all about the beach–a long stretch of sand with the Pacific Ocean on one side and the Goolawah Lagoon on the other. There are two beachside campgrounds here, which make a great base for surfing, fishing, birdwatching, and whale watching in winter. There are showers and toilets at the Racecourse Campground.

Hat Head National Park

The white-sand beach stretches even further north of Crescent Head than it does south, and at the northern end is Hat Head National Park. As well as surfing, fishing, and swimming, visitors can hike on numerous trails and visit the Smoky Cape Lighthouse. There’s a well-equipped holiday park in the small settlement of Hat Head (outside the boundaries of the national park) and a simpler campground within the park, too.

Limeburners Creek National Park

Located between Crescent Head and the city of Port Macquarie, Limeburners Creek National Park is another great choice for surfing, swimming, hiking, fishing, and wildlife-spotting. What sets this park apart is the size of its campsites–ideal in the busy summer. There’s a simple beach house that’s ideal for larger groups and families, and two large campgrounds, Point Plomer (with 90 sites) and Melaleuca (with 50). Point Plomer has showers as well as toilets.

When to go

As a beach destination, one of the best times to visit Crescent Head is the summer. It’s a great spot for surfing, swimming, fishing, and snorkelling—camp beside the beach and simply roll out of bed and into the ocean. However, winter is also good because it’s when migratory whales pass the coast, and campgrounds are less busy then. Winter temperatures are mild enough that with a good sleeping bag, tent camping will generally be comfortable.
