Jandarra Farm offers a comfortable and peaceful camping experience on a working farm in the Gold Coast hinterland.

Guests are invited to learn about regenerative agricultural practices such as how Jandarra is managing cattle to build soil biology and rebalance nature, using holistic management practices - moving the cattle every day using electric fences (to replace the predators) and small paddocks (26 of them actually). As food security and clean food becomes more important than ever before, we can contribute in a small way to improving the quality of your soil to grow vegetables by providing short introductory sessions on worms and manure for your gardens. See Extras for more information. EXTRAS - We offer a range of Jandarra Experiences including: - Pop-up trailer, with linen (fully set up on arrival) - Pop-up trailer, BYO linen (fully set up on arrival, sans linen) - Infrared sauna (See Extras - $20 for 30 mins for one or two guests.

This certification assures travellers that they are booking high-quality eco experiences. Our goal is to model and inspire responsible ecological stewardship and foster harmony and creativity to build a regenerative and abundant future. There are many places to wander, sit and listen. Over 90 bird species have been listed here. Jandarra is a registered Land for Wildlife property and we ask all guests to be mindful of wildlife and farm animals when moving around the property. SUSTAINABILITY The caretaker of this property co-founded "Boomerang Bags", a not-for-profit organisation raising awareness of plastic pollution through community engagement. There are over 1200 communities globally diverting material from landfill and creating habits of reuse rather than single-use. Therefore, drumroll...please bring reusable rather than single-use (eg beeswax wraps instead of cling wrap, real containers rather than takeaway) and take home any rubbish (you won't find any bins except for the food scraps). We would be very happy to show you how to make a boomerang bag for keeps on the industrial sewing machines that live in the garage. Let us know if you would like to try your hand and create a momento and useful shopping bag as part of the Jandarra experience (see Extras). ABOUT REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURE Jandarra is the 40th property in Australia to undertake the Ecological Outcome Verification (EOV) Process through the Savory Institute. EOV was developed in collaboration with leading soil scientists, ecologists, agronomists and an extensive network of regenerative land managers around the world. EOV is a practical and scalable soil and landscape assessment methodology that tracks outcomes in biodiversity, soil health, and ecosystem function (water cycle, mineral cycle, energy flow and community dynamics). Jandarra has 10 Short term monitoring sites plus one long-term monitoring site. By recognising both land regeneration targets and trends, EOV endorsement is bestowed as long as land health moves in a net positive direction with the third year monitoring event in April 2023 confirming the positive trend. We believe EOV gives the land a voice and through this process, provides us with feedback to make better management decisions. We welcome a conversation and to share more information when you visit. THINGS TO DO NEARBY - Walk the Ocean Track at Burleigh Heads National Park and cool off at Echo Beach - 3 km walk, swim and picnic at the scenic Gorge Falls (end of Tallebudgera Valley) - Stock up on supplies at the organic food pantry and organic sourdough bakery in Burleigh - Dine at cafes and restaurants such as Parlour (the closest decent coffee), Wazen Japanese and JFK Italian, less than 15 minutes drive from Jandarra. *No smoking or vaping on the property, please. *If you have a larger group wanting visit, please contact us directly.

The best camping near Pottsville Beach guide

Overview

About

Pottsville Beach, in the Tweed Coast region, is the perfect destination for natural retreat-seekers. Its long, sandy coastline curves around crystal blue waters, offering visitors a glimpse of paradise. Whether you stay in the comfort of a natural bushland caravan park or pitch a tent on the beach, Pottsville’s camping lifestyle has you covered. After a lazy day camping and sunbathing, carve up the waves for some ocean adventures like surfing and stand-up paddle boarding. Bring your fishing rod along and head out during the high tide to reel in some local treasures. With tranquil café-lined streets and endless ocean views, Pottsville Beach is the ultimate escape.

When to go

The best time to visit Pottsville Beach is during the warmer months, from September to April, when the weather is ideal for beach activities and outdoor dining. However, it's wise to avoid peak holiday periods if you prefer a quieter experience. Winter can be less inviting with cooler temperatures and fewer open establishments.

Know before you go

  • Check the local weather forecast before planning your trip to ensure a pleasant experience.
  • Be mindful of the environment and adhere to sustainable practices while enjoying the beach.
  • Accessibility options are available, but it's best to confirm in advance if you have specific needs.
  • Local markets are a must-visit for fresh produce and unique crafts, so plan your visit accordingly.
  • Remember to bring sun protection and stay hydrated to make the most of your coastal adventure.
