We are a family of four, creative and vibrant personalities who live on 35 acres just outside the town of Maleny.
Try Tim's home made sourdough and eat fresh seasonal vegetables and fruits from our garden.
Gorgeous, vintage caravan to stay in- recently renovated with fridge, cooking facilities, power.
Bathroom and toilet facilities in main house.
There is plenty of space and we are slowly revegetating the farmland (previous dairy farm) with native plantings. We are eradicating introduced species, especially around the water ways where thriving bird life is found.
We are extending our vegetable gardens to provide more seasonal food. The animals that live with us are horses, chooks and goat. Part of the land is virgin forest, and bushwalking into the gorge is a thrill.
Beautiful valley views from most vistas.
We are a private home looking for helpers, thus we are not a business.
We are 8km out of Maleny which is an alternative living, artistic community and a popular destination for city tourists from Brisbane.

Can host families
There is ADSL internet in the house and it is expected to be upgraded at some point. We are in a rural area and at times there can be issues in high winds or rainy weather.
This host can provide space for campervans.
We don't have great fences for dogs, but if there are trained to stay with their owners, that would work well.
