The Peach Farm

15 sites · Lodging, RVs, Tents55 acres · Mororo, NSW
Relax or get involved at The Peachy; an iconic, eco friendly, off-grid animal rescue farm... privately owned and publicly loved! We feed the farm animals and collect the eggs every morning at 8am so set your alarm and join in the fun. Gypsy, your onsite hostess with the mostest, will take you on a fun-filled journey where everyone learns something! The dam is back in action after the drought and then an invasive weed taking over. There are kayaks here and they are free for everyone to enjoy. There is a nature playground for the kids, an outdoor bathtub (book with us after you have booked your site $45 or book as a 'camp site'), wood-fired pizza oven (book in the 'extras') and a well equiped community kitchen. The Peach Farm is centrally located within a 20 minute drive to close by attractions. Adventure; 4 wheel drive at Shark Bay. Swim; Iluka's famous beaches. Walk; Iluka Heritage Rainforest, from the lush rainforest to the amazing views at The Bluff. Explore; Yamba, Angourie, the Scottish town of Maclean. Our eccentric affectionate mix of farm animals will win you over in seconds especially if you grab some feed from your hosts. All of our loving animals have been rescued as a tiny baby or taken in when their owners could no longer care for them. Each site has a picnic table and a fire-pit and you can book a camp oven package if you would like to engage in some outdoor cooking. It's fun, relaxing and nothing beats a camp oven stew! Our community kitchen is a hub for get togethers and yarns, well equipped with a gas cooktop, toaster, kettle, cooking utensils, a BBQ, fridge/freezer, and plenty of tables. There are fresh herbs and eggs when in plentiful supply. Please use the worm bin for all your kitchen scraps. We have an amazing composting loo but no showers yet. We are pet friendly however we do ask that you have your best friends on a leash AT ALL TIMES and please do not get too close to the alpacas, they are protectors and will become uneasy and distressed. We strongly believe in 'leaving no trace' so please be mindful of our animals, other happy campers and 'take only memories leave only footprints'. “The peach from can only be accessed heading north on the highway. If coming from the North take the Iluka exit and then just loop back to head north - 1.5km turn off is on the left straight off the Highway!"

The best camping near Everlasting Swamp National Park guide

Overview

About

Embark on an adventure through Everlasting Swamp National Park, a coastal wetland teeming with wildlife and scenic beauty. Known as the 'Kakadu of the south', this park is a bird watcher's paradise, especially after the rains when the wetland bursts with life. Paddle through meandering creeks, cycle along wooded banks, and cast a line in Sportmans Creek, all while surrounded by the park's tranquil natural beauty.

When to go

The best time to visit Everlasting Swamp National Park is during autumn and spring, when birdlife is abundant and the weather is pleasant. Summer brings the wetland to life with breeding frogs, but be prepared for less shade and higher water levels. Winter offers a cooler climate, perfect for cycling and canoeing amid the park's serene landscapes.

Know before you go

  • Everlasting Swamp National Park is open year-round, but may close due to weather conditions or fire danger.
  • Be mindful of the park's safety messages, including the potential for snakes and the need for insect repellent.
  • There are no facilities or drinking water available, so come prepared with all necessities.
  • Mobile phone reception is limited; download the Emergency Plus app for safety.
  • Remember to respect the wildlife and follow all park regulations during your visit.
