Chris and Christine, new owners of Jerrapark since September 2015, our 2 dogs, Nicko and Desi-Lou, and our 2 horses, Chillie and Gun will be delighted to welcome you in our little haven.
Jerrapark is a 16 hectare (40 acre) permaculture farm, whose purpose is to holistically renew the connection with nature and cosmic energy.
Jerrapark is nestled in the heart of the beautiful Northern Rivers Caldera, surrounded by the lush nature of the Border Ranges and Mt Warning National Parks.
Immerse yourself in the relaxing and healing atmosphere of the Rainbow Region, its lush nature and beautiful waterfalls and crystal clear water swimming holes.
The Jerrapark carriages offer something unique…a purpose-built celebration of the Queensland days of rail when steam and later diesel locomotives were the lifeblood of commerce and travel in Australia.
The two carriages started their life in the 1930’s and each of the stations or compartments are named after some of the evocative major rail destinations of yesteryear. Now complete with their rolling stock they have been extensively refurbished and provide all the creature comforts…
Between the carriages is a large deck which also encompasses a modern kitchen, bar toilets and bathrooms and a cosy fireplace.

Jerrapark offers a chance to totally de-stress…
ENJOY THE BALM OF IMMERSING YOURSELF IN NATURE
Take a stroll through the verdant pecan forest where our horses graze…sit by the bubbling creek…and if you are very quiet you just might glimpse a platypus foraging. When the weather turns hot and steamy take a splash in one of the dams or wander down and sit under the waterfall that cascades most months of the year. Here is a wonderful place to meditate…a primal grotto watched over by towering gums and palms.
Later reconnoitre up the hill and glimpse our small part of the ancient caldera with Mt Warning (Wollumbin) in the distance. While you are there pick some ripe mangoes and take them home for a sweet treat.
Back at the carriages the herb garden will assault your senses with the aroma of wild basil, thyme, lavender, lemon balm and mint…weaving a spell to enthuse you to cook up something mouth-watering in the kitchen.
At night there’s a firepit close to the carriages… you can roast chestnuts and share a glass with friends under a canopy of stars.
Jerrapark is the perfect faraway place for retreats, workshops seminars or clinics, weddings, birthdays or dinner parties. We hire the venue and will work towards the success of your private event with a few extra services from catering options, Drop off/Pick Up Services and Party Ambiance.
