Jandarra Farm offers a comfortable and peaceful camping experience on a working farm in the Gold Coast hinterland. Certified through Ecotourism Australia, Jandarra’s goal is to model and inspire responsible ecological stewardship and foster harmony and creativity to build a regenerative and abundant future. Jandarra means 'place of peace' and we honour this by having a maximum of 6 campers at a time. Guests can visit the rockpool, take a self-guided walk through the rainforest, book a sauna (see Extras) and enjoy a conversation around the campfire under the stars (BYO firewood or see Extras). Take a short, hot shower with a view of the hills, toilets, and a well-equipped camp kitchen (no microwave) inside a rustic barn with tables and chairs. The 135-acre farm in Tallebudgera Valley is home to cattle, chickens, worm farms and bee hives, plus local wildlife. Guests are invited to learn about regenerative agricultural practices such as how Jandarra is managing cattle to build soil biology and rebalance nature. This is primarily achieved through the use of 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 - Firewood - Organic muesli with Jandarra fruit - Jandarra organic eggs - Learn about the wonder of worms + optional worm farm starter kit to take home (subject to availability) - Take some crap, AKA manure, home (subject to availability) - Sew your own boomerang bag to take home ECOTOURISM CERTIFIED CAMPING Jandarra is one of two Hipcamp sites to be certified through Ecotourism Australia. 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 if you are into bird watching. 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. 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). 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 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. THINGS TO DO NEARBY - Walk the Ocean Track at Burleigh Heads National Park and cool off at Echo Beach - Picnic at the scenic Cougal Cascades in Springbrook National Park - 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 of up to eight people, please contact us directly.

Personal retreat
The energy in the place was powerful, sit and listening to place was so connecting. I definitely encourage people to go. Between the water, the sounds of the wind, the blinding shades of green and beautiful farm animals hanging around. You won't want to leave

Most tranquil get away!
We loved our stay at Jandarra, the facility’s are stylishly rustic and Tania has artfully decorated the communal meal prep shed to be a wonderful space to prep, share a meal and relax. The property is picturesque and tranquil with campsites spacious and far apart. Don’t miss the private rock pools at the bottom of the property, they are spectacular and worth the visit. Tanya was very welcoming and friendly, and offers a host of additionals a such as fire wood, home made kombucha and breakfast goods (free range eggs, muesli, fruit etc) Do yourself a favour, if you are looking for a relaxing and stunning place for a get away, make sure to head to Jandarra. We’re looking forward to our next visit!

Very special place. Would 100% recommend, especially if you are interested in regenerative agriculture. What Tania has built is very special and you get the full experience if you are keen. We collected our own manure, learned how to make biodynamic compost and had a sauna session with a view on the banana trees. The highlight of the stay were the rock pools. And it’s only 20min from the coast if you need.

Where do I begin… We randomly found Tania’s stay when exploring a camp spot to stay the night. Everything aligned and it was exactly what we was looking for. We were blown away with Tania’s love for animals and the environment. Her warm heart and hospitality left us feeling full. Highly recommend this place if your looking to reconnect with nature, find peace and recharge. Thanks for accomodating, talking about your passion and making us feel so welcome. We will see you again soon

Relax and recharge
Our stay at Jandarra was bliss! Such a peaceful spot, surrounded by beautiful farm and bush land that makes you feel a million miles away from the busy Gold Coast. The facilities were wonderful, and the private rock pool was so lovely. We booked in a sauna session too, on our last night, and came home feeling recharged and deeply relaxed. Couldn’t recommend this place more for those wanting to completely switch off for a night or two!

We found this spot to be perfect in every way and wish we stayed longer. It’s located in the most beautiful valley and feels like you’re in the middle of no where, when in fact the coast is only a 20 minute drive away. The fresh pools were beautiful, and the sauna was a great experience. This was one of our favourite places to stay on our 3 weeks trip.

Amazing beautiful spot only with only 3 sites to camp in, they all have plenty of space and are very intimate. There is also a sauna! The property has a little path that gives in to some rock pools, such a hidden gem. Absolutely loved it, already recommended it to some friends and I will definitely be back!!
