Nestled in the Gold Coast Hinterland, Jandarra Farm is a regenerative farm using cattle to build soil biology and rebalance nature. This is primarily achieved  through us of holistic management practices - moving the cattle everyday using electric fences (to replace the predators) and small paddocks (26 of them actually).

Three sites are available (max two people each, no more than six at one time). As part of your camping experience you can have a sauna session followed by a cool dip in the rock pool, then warm up fireside as the sun drops behind the hills and reveals the night sky – and lots more stars than in the big smoke.

Take a short shower with a view, cook a meal for yourself on the camp fire (dutch oven and hanging rack supplied) or use our full kitchen set up in the shed with a camp stove, pots, utensils and washing up bays with cutlery and crockery for your use (please wash and up and put away on departure).

Most importantly, take time to be still and listen. The name ‘Jandarra’ means 'place of peace’. There is great energy here and there are many places to wander, sit and listen. Over 90 bird species have been listed here if you are into bird watching.

Jandarra Experiences (please see ‘Extras’):

- Infrared sauna 

- Firewood

- Boomerang bag of organic seasonal produce

- Organic muesli with Jandarra fruit

- Jandarra organic eggs

- Sew your own boomerang bag to take home

 

*If you have a larger group (no more than eight), please contact us directly.

Permaculture practices, vegetable gardens and planting trees are other activities undertaken. There are three Warre (natural) beehives and flower gardens to keep the bees happy. Wander around to find our mobile chicken trailer and the 33 ladies that call ‘The Chick Inn’ home. We love worms too with a few bathtubs full.

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. Just 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).

 

More on 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 second testing in April 2022 confirming this. 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.

No smoking on the property please.

We loved the new elevated camp site. Large enough area to set up a camper trailer with wonderful views down through the Valley. We thoroughly enjoyed our fresh eggs and produce bag. The amenities were clean and the kitchen set up is great! Wonderful few days in a great location.

What a beautiful property! It had rained the night before but that didn’t stop us taking a short muddy trek to the beautiful water pools. We enjoyed a lovely warm fire in the fire pit before retreating to the barn shed to cook dinner and enjoy some games. Thoroughly enjoyed talking to Tania about the sustainable farm practices utilised at Jandara and learning about the bee keeping.
The facilities were above what I expected, even after reading the reviews. We only stayed one night, so we didn’t use the showers.
We would definitely recommend this property!

I absolutely adored my time camping at Jandarra - the energy of the place is pure magic! Tania is such a kind soul & was extremely helpful for any assistance that was required. We also had plenty of space & privacy to enjoy our little camping group ventures. The little shed has the best vibe & is completely stocked with every kitchen / camping items you’d ever need (I packed so much cooking gear that I didn’t even need to open). The land itself is breathtaking & feels so sacred, we went on a little adventure to swim in the rock pools (about 500m from camp site) which was beautiful! I absolutely loved gathering around the camp fire set up of a night with all the fairy lights on around us - it was perfect!

Thank you so much, I could not recommend this stay anymore! I’ll be back 😊

As two couples we had an absolutely wonderful long weekend camping at Jandarra and would recommend it to everyone. Tania has set up the most beautiful space - you can feel the magic as soon as you arrive.

We had everything we needed and more (Tania provides so much gear and comfort it's barely even camping!). The shed is fully equipped with everything you need - a warm, dry place to hang out in case of wet weather and everything you need for cooking (pots, pans, cutlery, crockery, kettle, gas stove, sink, toaster etc). The amenities are gorgeous-rustic-chic. The toilets are composting with zero odour and the showers are beautiful, hot and had great pressure - you even have a view of the mountains while you shower!

We loved building a fire each night and watching the stars, walking down to the creek at the bottom of the property, and visiting the chickens and cows.

Tania is an outstanding host with a keen eye for detail - the little touches made all the difference. For example, the body wash and hand soaps were high quality and smelt divine, there were freshly cut native flowers in the amenity block, and there were even matches for lighting your fire.

Big thank you to Tania for creating such a magical space - we can't wait to come back!

Jandarra is a magical campsite and completely outdid my expectations,
Tania was a wonderful host who went out of her way to ensure we had the complete Jandarra experience. The hike to the rock pools and waterfalls were a stand out as were the facilities. The communal shed/kitchen/dinning has everything you need and is just a beautiful space to be in. Get amongst the vege patch or gather around the firepit under the canopy of the huge tree and pretty festoon lights. Loved my stay here and couldnt recommend enough. I will be back!
