    Description

    We are a young family with our first baby living on 20 acres just outside of Mullumbimby in Upper Main Arm. Lizzie is a high school teacher, loves surfing and is always out in the garden when home. Taz works from home or in remote communities for a Not-for-profit which works supports Aboriginal cultural maintenance.
    Our property is mostly bushland and sits up high on a ridge with beautiful easterly and westerly views through the valleys. Over the last 5 years we have been working on setting up a small fruit orchid, native gardens and permaculture veggie gardens.

    We live here with one mum (a legendary 60y/o) who has her own dome, the awesome structure you see in the pictures. We also live with 2 dogs, 2 horses, 2 pigs and about 40 chickens, all rescue animals. Julie recently brought home a baby cow so we now have a cow.

    We are looking for help from either a couple or a single person willing to work 20 hours a week in exchange for accomodation and food, days and hours are negotiable but we are hoping to have someone for a 2-4 week stay.

    We are also interested in people who are willing to take care of the garden when we go away in exchange for board

    Look forward to chatting with you soon.
    Taz and Lizzie

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We love our animals here and have quite a bit of knowledge on animal health and love.
    A morning or afternoon on the verandah is spent just listening to birds and relaxing with the amazing view.
    We love to play games, cards or board games and have a particular love of dress ups. Some may think this is not something to learn but I would say this is what we are masters at.
    Lizzie speaks some German and Spanish.
    Our house is filled with instruments and records and turntables.
    Would love to have fun with and learn from our guests also.
    We have made some lifelong friends from our workawayers and love having them here!

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We have a spare room with a queen size bed. Kitchen and Bathroom will be shared with us.

    Our local area has heaps of great walks and waterfalls, markets and is 20 minutes from the closest beach if your keen for a surf. Our house is 10 mins to Mullumbimby, 20 mins to Brunswick Heads and 30 minutes from Byron Bay. The public transport isn’t great so it’s better to have your own car. Our driveway is a long gravel one with humps. Low cars aren’t great

    The food we cook is delicious, wholesome vegan and have a selection of veggies and fruit from the garden as well as other ingredients we get from markets and bulk foods. Happy to cook for you if you want to hang out for meals.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    A car is best. The Public transport Here is terrible and we don’t get out everyday. We go to the beach, to the farmers markets and on walks regularly, you are welcome to join or get a lift.
