Waterfalls & More

11 sites · RVs, Tents104 acres · Sherwood, NSW
HIDING IN THE MIDDLE OF EVERYWHERE! Pure. Unadulterated. WILD. 104 very private acres, securely sandwiched between a National Park Nature Reserve and State Forest. On a dead end road. No agriculture or farms upstream, only one other like-minded property owner. Secluded, but hiding smack bang in the middle of everywhere! From vertiginous sandstone cliffs on which epipetrics cling tight, right through to palm-filled rainforests, and with two quite different creek systems (including a monster waterfall), you'll be spoiled for things to do and places to explore - without even leaving the property! HISTORY This land is Gumbaynggirr land. Please be particularly mindful of our First Nation's long presence on this land. In the 1800's, white men came seeking Red Cedar, closely followed by settlers having a go at dairying; though logging has remained this area's mainstay. This special property, despite last being selectively logged about 50 years ago, hosts many huge old-growth trees remaining steadfast for your discovery and wonder. And many more are continuing to grow out too. About 35 years ago about nine of this property's eastern-most 104 acres became part of a far larger nashi pear orchard which filled much of the flats of this top end of the valley that you see today. Ultimately they failed to set good commercial fruit, and the rootstocks took over. You can see remnant rows of these trees just south of the property, from along the road. (Beware though - they have spikes that could puncture Caterpillar tracks!) MORE RECENTLY extensive lantana control efforts have been undertaken as we now move into revegetating with native species and implementing a permaculture plan. Today the property is registered with Land For Wildlife and hosts a very wide mix of native vegetation communities. ACTIVITIES Bird watch. Climb. Abseil. Photograph wildflowers. Paint. Swim. In the next valley there's even gold to be found. Explore trails by mountain bike. Whale watch. Surf. Learn SCUBA. Go beach-combing. Catch a mudcrab. Go whitewater river rafting. Ask your host about where to find all the local waterfalls, the best walking, how to find gold, the gnarliest off-road tracks, Anything is possible here in this magnificent part of the world, except perhaps snow and ice.

Forest Farm

3 sites · RVs, Tents280 acres · Tintenbar, NSW
Whether you want respite from the day’s travel or a special spot to stay for a few days, Forest Farm might just be the place for you. Just 5 mins off the Tintenbar exit of the M1 Motorway, Forest Farm is a 280 acre farm bordered by Emigrant Creek in Tintenbar, Northern NSW. Centrally located in the Northern Rivers area, Forest Farm is just 30 mins from Bryon Bay, 15mins from Lennox Head and Ballina and Bangalow, 10 mins from Newrybar and Alstonville and 5 mins from Killen Falls. Staying at Forest Farm gives you access to many famous markets, bike trails, national parks and walking trails, boating, brilliant beaches, restaurants and cafes … you name it. And in between all those visits you get to come home to a very special kind of paradise in a beautiful valley surrounded by trees and forest, birds and other native animals. The property is home to koala, wallabies, echidnas, and many different birds (local birdwatching groups have identified nearly 100 different species so far). There are also some friendly cattle. A lovely walk along Emigrant Creek starts from the camping area, and the path leads you through to Tintenbar General Store, a great place for a morning coffee, and any supplies you need. Kayaking and fishing are common along Emigrant Creek. And if you’re lucky, you may just get a glimpse of the elusive platypus along the way. Forest Farm is a quiet, peaceful place and we welcome likeminded campers. We value our relationship with our neighbours, so please no parties or loud music. Laughter always welcome!!!! P.S. Don't forget your mozzie repellent in the wet summer months!!!
