  • Description


    - currently about to make changes to the piping for my water harvesting. Let me know if you want to help! It's lots of fun.

    I live on a 5 acre property 130km east of Perth, which I like to keep mostly natural. At this time of year I also like to explore the beaches and small settlements on the south coast too.

    I'm very easy going and I'd rather enjoy life than work too hard. I like to maintain and fix things and enjoy the environment I'm in. There are currently a few building projects I'm interested in doing mainly just to allow myself to catch more rainwater.

    I enjoy helping others improve their English and like to share basic DIY knowledge. No specific skills are needed for anything I might do out here. I just have trouble with the usual age-related things such as aches and pains. I have it all planned out and just need someone to come and make me get off the computer. I want to speak more Japanese too.

    There is plenty of space for camping, yoga and sunbathing and I am someone who does everything himself so you will definitely learn something from me. It may be car maintenance, guitar playing, singing, carpentry, electronics. Or something else! I need to relocate some olive trees, build things and I service my own vehicles. Basic upkeep of the property is an ongoing thing. The property is completely off-grid and you will learn many skills and do things you may not have ever done before.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This is the ultimate way to experience life in the wheatbelt of WA and a great way to enjoy life. Australian values are strong out here and many of the people in town are from large farms that have been around for over 100 years. This is a fantastic place to come to be surrounding by people who are mainly Australian which is an excellent way to immerse yourself in to the Aussie way of life. I'm a musician as well and music is practiced a lot. While I would like to learn more Japanese I am very interested in helping people learn to speak English better. Evenings on the deck are a great way to end the day and enjoy the Australian landscape.
