  • Description

    Description

    We are a family but our son and daughter have left home so just the two of us, and the dog. Andy works from home and I have a part time job. We live about 10 minutes drive out of Bellingen, a small country town with lots of cafes and a great community feel. We are close to world heritage Dorrigo National Park on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales. We have a spacious country styled house with verandahs to sit and enjoy the view and a pool to relax and cool down in summer. We love to travel and love cooking.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live in a small rural community with a mix of agriculture, artist, and musicians. You will experience Australian family life with Wallabies at your doorstep. We are also surrounded by bird life and our garden is full of Australian Native shrubs and trees.

    We always have weeding and watering to do and fertilising and mulching the citrus trees. We have a small crop of garlic which will be harvested in November or December (not sure yet). Spring cleaning the house and window cleaning and home maintenance jobs are easy. I have a glass mosaic project to finish. Collecting fire wood and kindling. We need help with finishing our chicken yard which requires fencing and netting. We are trying to set up a bigger and better vegetable garden so if you like gardening we have lots to do. You don't need to be skilled but if you do have skills that would be great too.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We have 2 bedrooms with queen size beds so could accommodate 2 people or 2 couples. These bedrooms share a bathroom. The accommodation is in our family home not separate. Meals would be with us and Andy is a great cook. Summer usually is marinate meats on the BBQ with lots of great salads. We also love Asian flavours and grow things like ginger, lemongrass, garlic, limes and coriander to make delicious curries. We also enjoy Pasta and Mediterranean dishes. Help with clean up after each meal is necessary.

    What else ...

    We have a beautiful National Park nearby with waterfalls to explore and great bush walking. We have a pool and are close to a river and only 20 minutes drive to beautiful beaches for swimming or long walks or whale watching. The local pub or brewery is great for a few drinks and sometimes live music. I usually drive to town on a daily basis so you will be able to explore the local cafes, bakeries and shops and I can pick you up when you are ready to come home.
