  • Description


    Our home is situated in Tuntable Creek in the coastal ranges close to Nimbin We are 40 minutes north of Lismore and an hour from the coast.
    We love gardening, regenerating native bushland, being creative, reading, relaxing and playing disc golf. Most of all we love living harmoniously with the natural environment and have a variety of animal friends coming close to the house. Sometimes they are even in the house! Our visitors have often commented on the abundant birdlife.
    Our organic garden provides much of the food we eat especially greens and seasonal fruit. Our values are based on clean green principles and we try to tread lightly and respectfully on the earth.
    Currently we have several bush regeneration projects underway. We’d love your help with these; however if this isn’t your thing there are numerous other jobs to do.
    In return for shared accommodation and three meals / day we ask for 3-4hours / day depending on the type of work.
    If you have your own transport that’s great however we can also arrange pick-up and drop-off in Nimbin or Lismore.
    No smoking in the house.
    Mostly we want you to have a great experience and leave us all feeling nurtured, refreshed and happy!
    Lina and Geoff

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    This area is a treasure trove of biological and cultural diversity. From the sub-tropical rain forests to the hub of Nimbin and other towns this region is renowned for its many alternative communities, sustainable living practices and creativity. Everyone who comes to this area leaves with a greater awareness of the importance of keeping ourselves and our planet healthy and hopefully also feeling empowered to share their learning as they move through life.

There is a large veranda space for relaxing or perhaps some yoga. The kitchen and bathroom facilities are shared with us. The bush toilet is located outside the house.

    There is a school bus service operating during school term however it's easier to explore the area if you have your own vehicle. We are also willing to take Work-Awayer's on outings when convenient. Bush walks to suit all levels of age and experience are available in the National Parks. Local markets are held each weekend and local food markets are held during the week. There are also Cafes/Restaurants, Workshops, Art Galleries, Op-shops etc in all the nearby towns.
