  • Description


    I have lived here for 35years and wanted to live a self sufficient life style. That dream lives on by living on the land with the wallbies and echidnas. I work as a manager of holiday apartments in Byron Bay which I love doing. The other person living on the property is a gardener/mosaic artist who set up the garden at the Chrystal Castle just up the hill from Mullumbimby. She has built a studio at the front of the property and we share the joy of gardening and working the land together.
