Our place is a rare breeds hobby farm, sustainable from paddock to plate. and practicing permaculture methods in our gardening. We care about the environment.
Originating from the UK we have been living on the Mid-North Coast for nearly 14 years. Both professionals in the OH&S and power industry.
We have natural native bee hives and an abundance of wildlife around us. I'm also a carer for WIRES, so you never know what native animal may be 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, and helping out with many other projects from fencing to Instagram! We are generally happy for you to set your own hours each day or even double up if you want more free whole days. Ideally Workawayers will have their own transport as I might not always be free to drive you around. We can supply push bikes and helmets (legal requirement) if you would like to explore the area. Currently there is no local transport from Bonville into town.
Fully self-contained apartment, full kitchen and bathroom shower/bath & separate toilet. Use of our beautiful mineral swimming pool & state of the art swim machine.
Before arriving we like to discuss meals, and are more than happy to stock the apartment with your dietary requirements.
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.
