  • Description


    Hi we are three living together at home and sometimes one. Corinne 42 years young, Minyani 14 and Clovis 7 We have relatives and friends who live nearby so sometimes our house can be full and social and other times quiet and still.
    I love people and we love learning new things that different personalities bring to our lives. We are passionate about community, the environment and healthy living. Various individual interests in our family are: reading, art, drawing, drama, reading camping, gardening, surfing, swimming, cooking, music, nature, wildlife, yoga, meditation, bushwalking travel and trampoline jumping.
    We built our own home, which needs lots of maintenance 🤪 and are currently renovating a old cottage on the property. . We are also continuously developing and maintaining permaculture gardens.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have been hosting foreign travelers for more then 10 years, we are also on other websights. All our guest have really enjoyed themselves, often choosing to stay much longer than they originally planned, and many have become long term friends. I have been complimented on my patience, parenting, compassion and teaching methods. Guest generally leave feeling they have been loved and become one of the family members. I have helped many people learn and practice new skills, enjoy new experiences, as well as improve their english. We have introduced our guest to the wider community, Australian lifestyle, Australian native wildlife (fauna and flora), recreation experiences in the great outdoors, and shared some local hidden treasures as well as popular tourist destinations. But what they also get is day to day living in rural community in country Australia.
