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 Sandon Beach guide

Overview

About

Sandon Beach, located on the east coast, is the perfect spot for a fun camping and beach holiday! This stunning beach boasts miles of soft white sand and crystal clear waters. There are plenty of things to do once you're there, whether it be swimming, surfing, or relaxing. You can also take a caravan and stay near the beach, soaking up the incredible coastal views and fresh sea air. With a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, the beach is great for families, couples, and groups of friends who just want to enjoy a peaceful getaway. The beach also has plenty of spots to have barbeques or set up campfires, providing the perfect opportunity to enjoy being outdoors and in nature. All in all, Sandon Beach is a wonderful destination for an unforgettable beach getaway.

When to go

The best time to visit Sandon Beach is during the warmer months, from September to April, when the sun kisses the landscape and the water is inviting. However, be mindful of the peak holiday seasons, as the beach can become a popular retreat. Off-season visits offer a quieter experience, though some facilities may be less accessible.

Know before you go

  • Check the local weather and tide forecasts before planning your trip to ensure a safe and enjoyable visit.
  • Be prepared for the 10-kilometre unsealed road leading to the beach; a vehicle with good suspension is recommended.
  • Accessibility is limited, so visitors with special access needs should plan accordingly.
  • Remember to pack sun protection, including sunscreen, hats, and ample water to stay hydrated.
  • Respect the local wildlife and natural surroundings by following all guidelines and regulations.
