ABOUT Zaytuna Farm Eco Hamlet is a highly active Permaculture demonstration site and has been used to teach permaculture to countless international and local students for the past 20 years. It is at the forefront of Permaculture Design, displaying many permaculture principles, and produces an abundance of food and various yields from within its living environment. Zaytuna Farm Eco Hamlet is a family friendly farm, situated on a sixty six acre (27 hectares) property that fronts Terania Creek opposite the village of The Channon, Northern NSW. The property is completely off-grid and contains 800m of creek frontage with fishing spots, a swimming hole for campers, and abundant wildlife ideal for bird watchers. Zaytuna Farm Eco Hamlet has recently become a community of 8 private residences that share this beautiful property. We kindly ask that campers respect the residents’ privacy, however if you spot them on the common grounds, they are always up for a friendly chat. CAMPSITE The campsite is situated on the communal grounds at the heart of Zaytuna Farm Eco Hamlet on flat lawn surrounded by bamboo and the sounds of the rainforest. We also have 10 raised camping shelters on offer, suitable for small tents for 1-2 people. Campers have close access to bathrooms built from eco-friendly shipping containers with composting toilets and warm showers; a fire pit, a kitchen garden to share from, an education/function center (available for hire), a common sheltered area to relax with wifi, and an equipped shared kitchen. OTHER NOTES We strictly have a no drug and alcohol policy. Due to our policy and customs, we kindly ask that no pork products enter the property, and that reasonably modest clothing is worn (shoulders down to knees covered is fine) including around the swimming hole. Please note this is not the place for partying, but a place for connecting with nature and nurturing wellbeing. We kindly ask that all rubbish is taken off the premise as there are no bins. Children 7 years and under stay free. We look forward to hosting you!

Nice campling area. The toilets reminded me of my grandparents farm where they had a pit. Interesting to see that these toilets had removable pods. Heaps of 240V power available at the training centre and common kitchen area to charge batteries. It was a good experience to try to camp using portable solar panels and small gas cooking etc without power. The farm and people were great. For me though, the learnings about solar systems was the best. It is great to learn from those who have experience and learnt the hard way from trial and error.

Overall a nice place, need to warn however shoes are a must as a lot of bindi weed. If you are not a fan of bats there is a colony on/near the property.

What was advertised was what we got, nothing more, nothing less. However, the bathroom facilities were minimally maintained (as in shower screens missing), but relatively clean. Bring your own power source, none provided - completely off grid.

Wonderful family friendly spot!
Great location and facilities. This is a family friendly location and my children enjoyed getting to know the Nigerian dwarf goats and feeding the chickens. We will be visiting often and I would recommend this campsite.
