    In brief:

    Panoramic views over Motueka river and Tasman Bay, from The Marlborough Sounds to the Abel Tasman National Park (you can see the peaks of the Nelson Lakes National Park too)
    12kms from central Motueka / 12kms from the golden beaches of Kaiteriteri / 16kms from Marahau
    Great mobile reception and fast internet
    Backs onto Kahurangi National Park - endless trails for walking/hiking/mountain biking right here
    Swim in the clean Motueka River just a few mins away
    Close to vineyards, skydiving, cycle trails, etc. - so much to do around here.

  • Arbeit


    We're on a mission - slowly turning 44 acres back to native forest, eradicating predators, bringing the birdsong back, opening up access paths and growing our own locally-sourced native trees. We've planted around 10,000+ native trees over the last 3 years in a large-scale, long-term and ongoing project.

    We're looking for chilled, positive, fit, conservation-minded people for up to 2 weeks for:
    Light track maintenance, felling small wilding pines, some gardening, some planting, checking traplines, watering baby trees in our small nursery, we have some art projects too.
    During rainy days in winter we'd appreciate help with cooking housekeeping work, childcare if you love children and spending time with them.
    *If you plan to stay May-September (our winter), it's hardcore native tree-planting time!

    *Please note: We would prefer global people who have an active interest in: restoration projects, nature, wildlife, being outdoors, yoga and fitness, climate activism, self-sufficiency, spirituality, self-awareness, positive living (rather than "it looks like a nice place")

    *Please remember: *You need to supply and cook your own food - we do not cook for guests* +++ * be water wise - we are fully off grid and water usage is limited in the summer if dry*

    - a chill-out zone in a converted barn with shared fridge and sofas open 24hrs
    - a converted writing shed next to the tipi with desk and table for writing that novel
    - a large purpose-built elevated meditation platform for forest-bathing amongst old-growth native trees
