Short Property Description
Your permaculture coastal bush oasis awaits! Higher Ground Retreat is 146 acres of coastal bushland at Upper Shark Creek. This off-grid property feels a world away, but is only 15 minutes drive from Maclean, 25 minutes from the stunning beaches at Brooms Head, Angourie and Yamba, and less than 2 hours from the Gold Coast.
Full Property Description
This has been a hobby farm for the last 10 years with established gardens and fruit trees. We purchased the land in November 2018 and are in the planning stages of an organic working permaculture farm and Eco retreat.
Come and join us and experience the self-sufficient life you’ve been yearning for, with off-grid solar, tank-water and a dam for swimming. Vegies, fruit trees, chooks, a shade house for seedlings – this garden is chock-a-block full of productive and aesthetic features and is only the beginning!
We also have a small herd of sheep fenced in the cleared area close to the house. The homestead and camping area is 25 acres on top of a small hill within the environmentally protected wetlands.
Property is currently renting ‘glamping’ belle tents and soon will have the camping area open in April 2019.
