    Beschreibung

    We have an 85 acre mountain rainforest landscape in the hinterland behind Byron Bay and near the town of Mullumbimby. It is a beautiful, ancient rainforest valley with fresh water creeks, swimming holes, waterfalls, rainforest and mountain plateaus.

    We are a certified organic permaculture farm and grow various foods, herbal medicines and useful plants mostly small scale for our own personal use rather than commercially. We have goats, sheep, chickens and cows but none of them are farmed or used for food or sold and all animals are loved and part of our systems to eat down grass and for guests to interact with and enjoy the beautiful company of animals.

    We have some yurts, domes, cabins and a few houses across the farm and a small handful of residents and guests.

    Accommodation for workaway travellers is most often within a private or shared, self contained space such as a nice cabin, dome or yurt often same places rented by guests.

    Good healthy food is supplied to suit your diet and preferences but you would need to be able to cook for yourself and make your own meals with food supplied.

    We have movies, books, magazines and internet access and the farm itself has beautiful mountain valley views, rainforest, animals and nearby are fresh water waterfalls, rock pools and swimming holes which are great in summer with walks/hikes and other things to do.

    When not helping with various jobs , there are plenty of opportunities to explore, relax, study, enjoy the land, animals and gardens, make and create artistic and useful things with plants, bamboo and natural materials and food and herbs to make medicines, cosmetics and preserved foods. We often have nights with big outdoor cinema, fires, food and music and people from around the area

    Mullumbimby is great cosmopolitan, diverse rural town (7kms away) with people from around the world and lots going on with many activities, events, music, arts, markets, festivals, cafes and the beaches of Brunswick Heads nearby.

    Byron Bay has more going on 25 minutes away. HiItching is common and safe around here and there are often lifts available with residents going to town and back. Creeks and swimming are all close by in walking and biking distance.

    People willing to listen, help with a good attitude can enjoy a beautiful place to stay in, nice food, meeting people and animals, learning skills, gaining knowledge, enjoying activities and making connections.
