The Peach Farm

17 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 Arrawarra Beach guide

Overview

About

Arrawarra Beach beckons with its pristine sands and the famous Arrawarra Headland point break. Ideal for surf enthusiasts and beachgoers, the area offers a patrolled beach during peak summer, ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience. Whether you're looking to catch the perfect wave or simply soak up the sun, Arrawarra Beach is a coastal gem that promises memorable adventures.

When to go

The best time to visit Arrawarra Beach is between the 27th December and the 26th January, when the beach is patrolled from 10am to 3pm daily. Outside of these dates, visitors should be extra cautious when swimming. The Australian summer offers warm weather perfect for beach activities, while the off-peak seasons are quieter but less supervised.

Know before you go

  • Always swim between the flags for safety, as lifeguards patrol the beach during peak summer holidays.
  • Dogs are allowed on leash, with specific off-leash areas available nearby.
  • Boat launching is permitted, but parking on the beach is not allowed.
  • For any urgent inquiries or assistance, contact Coffs Harbour Lifeguards at 0418 285073.
  • Stay informed about local roadworks and conditions that may affect your travel to the beach.
