  • Description


    Hi my partner and I live on a 5 acre property, it's surrounded by mountains, forests and bush. There are a few sheds plus the main house, beautiful gardens with a pet peacock, wallabies, many birds, and original statues and works in stone, as the previous owner was an artist and sculptor. We are looking for a couple or a single person, to help with renovations, gardening and maintenance of the property. Painting, some help with light building (I can teach some carpentry skills), clearing unwanted vegetation, tidying up the place. Sorting out building material left on the property, etc.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You would be entertained by the numerous Birdlife, the Peacock, the Wallabies, all free to roam as they please. Beautiful views out to the mountains, with natural running creeks nearby to swim in. I can teach some carpentry and gardening skills, we are also building a tiny house on wheels. We are friendly and easy going. People into playing music Wellcome. There are 2 small villages nearby, and larger historical towns. The area is abundant with wildlife and beautiful visas and farms. There is a small grocery shop nearby, and our property winds down to a seasonal creek.

  • Help


    People who have an interest in or experience with renovating, like painting, light building, carpentry. Gardening interest, like pruning, planting, landscape. Maintenance tasks, like irrigation, pumps, water tanks, plumbing. We are hoping to build toilet and bathroom amenities for workaways. Maybe a small kitchen. We have only recently moved to the property, so are still cleaning and moving stuff around a lot.

    You can visit Nimbin or Uki, and places in between, two small communities, with cafes and shops. There are lakes nearby, and the two larger towns are historical with beautiful buildings and rivers. Walkng on our quiet property or roadway is a pleasure, surrounded by beauty and peace.
