    Beschreibung

    Falcon is a suburb of Mandurah situated 80 kms from Perth. The urban home is less than 500 metres walk (250 direct) to the beach. It is an old beach suburb with large house blocks and large trees so you can hear the birds. The Peel region offers great nature areas short drives away including the Lane Pool Reserve in the Dwellingup Forest. (Treetop adventures, Zip lining, river tranquility etc). Although Mandurah is a city it still resembles a country town in some ways. The waterways are unique.

    If you would like to enjoy the beginning of Spring between the beach and the RAMSAY listed Peel Estuary (bird life, hides, dolphins, kayak paddling) with modern comfort for work exchange this might be for you. Spend the mornings before the sea breeze exploring the aqua blue bays and coastal reef areas. Surfing, swimming, snorkelling and fishing are popular here. Work times can be flexible and work around the weather and enjoyment of life.

    My mother is a fairly fit 91 year old with some memory loss. She loves doing craft, playing scrabble, cuddling her poodle and going for walks in nature. She prefers someone else to cook her main meal but can still take care of her own needs.

    Hopefully the garden will only need a bit of nurturing but if you are keen to learn or practice permaculture methods there is always plenty to do. I have a few projects lined up including a wetland area adjoining the pond.

    Our place is walking distance to beach, a sports oval, tennis courts, & is a longer walk or cycling distance to cafes, shops, surf breaks and family recreation area beach (Falcon). The RAMSAY listed estuary has many walking trails & many allow bicycles. The bus goes down our street and connects to the train station connecting you to Perth.
