    Hi Guys - we have an awesome converted church on the banks of the Bellingen River in Northern NSW - 1/2 way between Sydney and Brisbane. Being on the river, we love all water sports - especially canoeing.
    Only 5 mins drive to Bellingen, renowned for its alternative life style, great cafés, music festivals, markets and cultural events.There is always something to do and we offer all opportunities to workawayers to get a taste of Bellingen.
    Only 5 mins to the most pristine beaches and 30 minutes to Dorrigo National Park.
    We always have small projects on the go,,,,,,,so we are hoping that you will assist us.

    Mixed diet please.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Bellingen is an eclectic, alternative hippy town. There is heaps to do in and around Bellingen. The town is a wonderful balance of people from all walks of life with wonderful cafes and quaint shops.

    There is a great community garden if you are into volunteering and learning about sustainable gardening techniques.

    Go to a yoga class, salsa dance, sip cocktails at the brewery or paddle down the river. Have a sit chai or coffee in the main street and watch the world go by.
