We are currently recovering from bushfire impacts, so we need help with vegetable gardens, some help with planting trees, and building a shadehouse for rainforest seedlings, cleaning up after the fires, also if you have any experience with kitchen and house work I could really welcome a hand in any of the above areas.
Our houses are OK and comfortable, we have wi fi and I will do my best to make you welcome and comfortable. If you have a heart for this kind of work I could really do with a hand.
Our home is located on a magnificent forested conservation property. It adjoins World Heritage country and is surrounded by vast areas of forested land offering spectacular scenery. Wonderful hiking opportunities into some spectacular wilderness country.
Our place is not resort style but it is welcoming, comfortable and a beautiful down to earth home.
We ask for 5 hours a day or equivalent 5 days a week and we can offer you comfortable accommodation with a private bedroom, internet, healthy meals and a welcome friendship. We can cater to most diets and we are flexible about help exchange.
Our place is off the grid with well established organic gardens.

We would invite you to discover the spirit and wonders of the wilderness. We live amidst the pure beauty of these ecologically unique and biodiverse forests. It is home to a many native species, 29 of them are on the rare or threatened species list.
Our natural environment has proven to be our best teacher, and has helped open our hearts to recognize the ancient wisdom that closeness to nature brings, closeness among humanity and all living beings. We do our best to live sustainably as part of nature, all life is interconnected.
This is the help I would like:
We have had a huge bushfire and it has impacted our place in the forest, burnt out a lot of country. Our houses are OK. We are currently cooking and accommodating fire fighters, if you have any experience with kitchen and house work I could really welcome a hand. The gardens need attention too.
We would like help in our large organic vegetable gardens which we depend upon these days. We would also like some help in the home and possibly land maintenance. Nothing major but a helping hand would be very welcome, any contribution towards achieving these goals would be helpful and much appreciated.
We have comfortable private bedrooms. We like to have healthy fresh abundant meals, with as much produce as possible from our own organic gardens. It is a combination of shared cooking and meals being prepared for you if you or you are also welcome to cook. We will provide all ingredients as part of the exchange. We can cater to most diets.
There are great hiking opportunities into the surrounding forests, pristine streams and spectacular views of wilderness areas. We adjoin World Heritage forests, and National Parks. The local town of Dorrigo is 43km away and I can pick you up from there.
It is easier if you have a car but if you do not you are welcome to come into town with me but mainly our place would appeal to someone who is wanting to enjoy and deepen their connection to the natural world. I am happy to share local knowledge and show you some spectacular places in our forests, gorges, streams and vast wilderness area and/or of course, you are welcome to explore by yourself.
Travelers love this place and its welcoming atmosphere. We look forward to meeting you.
