    Description

    Australian Rare Breeds Hobby Farm in Bonville, NSW, midway between Sydney and Brisbane , and only 8km to Coffs Harbour. Get up close and enjoy the company of some very friendly miniature goats, alpacas, sheep, cow's, chickens, ducks, geese, peacocks, dog ........ Oh, and us. Ex-pats from Kent UK. Diving/snorkeling, Coffs Harbour is the gateway to the magnificent Solitary Islands Marine Park with an abundant of Tropical and Sub Tropical fish. Looking for help on a weekly basis as the apartment is also used for family visiting. So if you fancy a week in paradise on your travels this is the perfect spot to stop! Currently need help with painting the goats cubby house, weeding, and planting a new veggie patch. In exchange I will give you a personal tour of the Coffs Coast and sub tropical rain forests. Workawayers will need their own transport as I might not always be free to drive you around. There is only one local bus per day from Bonville and no trains.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This is a rare breeds hobby farm, from paddock to plate. We originate from the UK and have been living on the Mid-North Coast for 11 years. We are both professionals in the OH&S and power industry. We have natural native bee hives and an abundance of wildlife. I'm also a WIRES carer so you never know what native animal may be here in care when you arrive! Willing to offer some limited advice on native wildlife care.

    What else ...

    Bonville is a beautiful town on the mid north coast of New South Wales, Australia. Only 8km away from Coffs Harbour. In the waters off Coffs Harbour Marina is the Solitary Islands Marine Park, home to abundant wildlife, seasonal whales and coral reefs. Just east is the Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve, with its large population of wedge-tailed shearwater birds and learning centre. The perfect spot to venture out and explore Dorrigo, Bellingen, The Promised Lands, and secret tucked away beach's such as Tuckers Rock.
