    Description

    Thanks for checking out our workaway.

    We are Kane, Clare and baby Winnie.

    We are located in the beautiful township of Warburton, 1h from Melbourne, where you can swim in the Yarra, see old growth forest, waterfalls and drink spring water. The property is only minutes walk from the heritage township and the best swimming spots. Warburton has great vintage shops, cafes, pizzeria and a small supermarket.

    We are in the early stages of building our future family home- an alternative 'eco-home' on our beautiful plot of land in Warburton, Victoria.
    Our aim is to develop the property into a sustainable, creative and unique piece of architecture.

    We currently live in the city but we will be spending 3 months building on our property between Dec-March with the aim of making it liveable by mid-2022 :)

    It will be comfy tent or caravan living (we can provide the tents/teepees) or you can bring your own campervan. There are limited services on the property but everything you need to be comfortable will be there. There is a clean hi-tech indoor compost toilet, electricity and water.

    There is an amazing freshwater swimming spot just a short walk away, (we will probably swim every day after work to freshen up before a delicious shared dinner! ) We will provide all meals, camping equipment and will be more than happy to take you on trips around the area after work.

    Warburton is one of the most beautiful places in Victoria that you could spend your summer and we look forward to hosting you.
