We are a family of 5 - Neil is a landscape designer and graphic designer, I am a mental health project manager, we have three kids and we both work from home.
We live in Northern NSW in the Byron Bay hinterland on five gorgeous acres near the small village of Federal - 10 mins north of Bangalow, 20 mins from Byron Bay and Mullumbimby. We have a busy family and would love to meet travellers wanting to work away. The work here is all outdoors - mostly weeding, mulching, digging, planting. It's physical work, but a great part of the world to be outside!

We love travellers and enjoy learning about other people's way of life. We have hosted a number of travellers from a variety of countries which has been a fantastic experience for us and our children - it is important to us to be able to demonstrate to our children that although we may sound or look different, and have different cultural backgrounds, different languages and different experiences, people from all over the world are essentially the same!
We would love some help with general garden maintenance. This is outside work and would suit someone who likes to be physical. Jobs include weeding, dragging branches etc to the burn pile, cleaning out the chickens house, mulching and whipper snipper work. Handyman/trademan skills, gardening experience would be great, but is not essential. You need good shoes, a hat and sunscreen! We will provide gloves, any tools and equipment required.
You will have your own room, which is attached to the main house, but does not have an ensuite; or, if our studio is vacant, you will have a self-contained area. We will provide food during the working week - breakfast and lunch for you to help yourself, and we'd love you to join us for dinner (or if you would rather cook for yourself and you are in the studio, we will buy food for you to prepare). During the weekend and outside the 4-5 hours per day during the week, you can explore this beautiful part of Australia. You will need a car here because there is no public transport. We are 20minute drive from Byron beaches, 10 minute drive to Clunes, 15 to Bangalow and 20 mins to Mullumbimby. Federal village and shop is just 5 minutes away and there are a number of local water holes which are great for a swim when it's hot (we also have a swimming pool). If you don't have a car, we are happy to drive you to Byron Bay for days off/weekend - but that will mean that you are not able to leave during the working days.
Public transport is very limited here, so having a car is essential if you want to spend time travelling around the local area during your time off. Local beaches are fantastic, so are the markets, bush walks and natural waterholes etc. this is a beautiful part of the world, we live in a very friendly and tolerant community and there are lots of great things going on around the Byron shire - festivals, theatre, music and more. We would request a non-smoker, drug free.
