Our property is situated at the foothills of the Billen Cliffs at beautiful Larnook, 30kms north west of Lismore and 20 mins away from Kyogle and Nimbin.
We can pick up from Lismore, Kyogle, Nimbin and Ballina, depending on times and day of the week.
Kevin has a passion for reptiles and we keep a few animals including a woma python called Kimba, pygmy monitors and blue tongues.
Wildlife on the property includes lots of birds, wallabies, water dragons, pythons, turtles, bandicoots, and we have recently seen a platypus in our creek.
Kevin is Professor of Tourism at Southern Cross University and he likes bushwalking so we can usually organise a bush walk into your experience provided there is time.
Anyway drop us a line if you are interested and we can take it from there.
We usually take on helpers for 7-10 days. Sometimes, if there is a strong connection between us and the Helper, the stay can be extended.

We are well travelled and love sharing travel stores with helpers. Kevin knows a lot about nature and wildlife and is always keen to share his knowledge. We have lived on our property for 12 years and so also have lots of local knowledge as well as our experiences developing our gardens and doing some bush regeneration.
We (Kev and Steve - we are a gay couple) have all kinds of work including weeding, mulching, watering plants, weed removal, creek revegetation, painting and planting.
We usually expect around 4 hours per day of work in exchange for all meals, your own room, access to internet (for checking emails, looking at websites, Skpe, Netflix), TV, dvd collection etc. Accommodation is your own room with shower and toilet in our 5 bedroom house.
