Australian Rare Breeds Hobby Farm in Bonville, NSW, midway between Sydney and Brisbane , only 8km to Coffs Harbour. Get up close and enjoy the company of some very friendly miniature goats, alpacas, sheep, cow's, chickens, ducks, geese, peacocks, ........ Oh, and us. Ex-pats from Kent UK.
If you fancy a week or so in paradise on your travels then this is the place for you. Ideally Workawayers will have their own transport as I might not always be free to drive you around, but we have push bikes and helmets (legal requirement) if you would like to explore the area. Currently there is no local transport.

This is a rare breeds hobby farm, from paddock to plate. We originate from the UK and have been living on the Mid-North Coast for 13 years. We are both professionals in the OH&S and power industry. We have natural native bee hives and an abundance of wildlife. I'm also a WIRES carer so you never know what native animal may be here in care when you arrive! Willing to offer some limited advice on native wildlife care.
Help varies depending on the time of year, always weeding and gardening to be done, cleaning and organizing in the home and garages. Helping out with any other projects from fencing to Instagram!
Fully self-contained apartment, full kitchen and bathroom shower/bath & separate toilet. At this time shared meals are no longer an option, food will be supplied for you to cook yourself.
Bonville is a beautiful town on the mid north coast of New South Wales, Australia. Only 8km away from Coffs Harbour. In the waters off Coffs Harbour Marina is the Solitary Islands Marine Park, home to abundant wildlife, seasonal whales and coral reefs. Just east is the Muttonbird Island Nature Reserve, with its large population of wedge-tailed shearwater birds and learning centre. The perfect spot to venture out and explore Dorrigo, Bellingen, The Promised Lands, and secret tucked away beach's such as Tuckers Rock.
