    Hi and welcome to our eco project. We have moved on to our land at Waipu Caves and intend to establish a retreat centre over time - a supportive refuge for self discovery and healing through a deep connection with nature.

    Set amongst the majestic limestone formations and sacred underground passageways of Waipu Caves, the property rests on 14 hectares of native bush and pasture for our four horses. The huge limestone cave system covers some four square kilometres and is home to millions of glow worms adorning the cavernous ceilings and freshwater koura in the chilly pools below.

    Our project is just beginning. Right now there is nothing on the land except the trees, the grass and the birds. This summer we will start making our dream a reality - and we need your help.

    So far we have set up a base camp based around our caravan. We’ve solar power, a basic water system and the gardens are under way. Our next job is to move a small cottage on to the property.

    There are a multitude of different task we need help with and your help would be greatly appreciated.

    This is a great opportunity to learn new skills. Alistair has hosted many working holiday travelers over the years and has lots of skills to share.

    We look forward to meeting you.

    This is a magical place with caves and walks close by and beaches a short drive away and lots to explore. It is good to have your own car to get out and about. We are 13km from the nearest shop at Waipu township. It's another 10km or so for surfing. Whangarei is the nearest city 19km away.
