We live on a magical property with waterfalls, swimming holes, bushwalks, permaculture gardens, fruit orchids, recording studios & lots of wildlife, close to Mullumbimby town & Byron Bay beaches. We have many interesting building projects in progress (hobbit sauna, hobbit house, swimming pool deck & landscaping ...)
Help in the house
Help with Computers / internet
U will learn about gardening & landscaping techniques, building, renovating, setting up & operating audio, video & lighting @ events ... & we're happy to help with English.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
The help is about 25hrs a week. Usually 5 hrs a day, 5 days a week, so there's 2 full days off each week. Or, if you want more full days off , you can work three 8ish hr days & have the rest of the week for other adventures.
Mostly we need help with cleaning & gardening projects: weeding, planting, mulching, looking after the vegie garden & for those that can handle machines: ride on mowing & whippersnipping.
We are particularly keen to have people with: building, carpentry, plumbing, bricklaying, tiling, electrical, sewing, IT, audio & video skills, as we have many projects on the go.
We also do audio visual installations @ events on the weekends & often need help setting up & operating sound systems, lights & video projects.
Accommodation is in your own self-contained lodge with communal kitchen & living areas & various private sleeping options. There are no bunk beds, we have 5 queen beds. We have a 2 week minimum stay policy, but prefer people who are up for staying a month or more . Most people don't want to leave & end up staying a few months.
The kitchen has all you need to cook your own meals.
We supply vegetarian food: various pastas, rice, beans, sauces, fruits, vegetables, cereals, bread, butter, milk, cheese, biscuits, condiments, etc
Depending on what season you visit, there will be different fruits & vegies available in the garden.
Some people also buy their own meat & other things that they're into to add to what we provide, but you can easily live well off what's in the kitchen & garden.
We can pick you up in Mullumbimby & give u rides to town & beach but if you have your own transport that's a bonus & will help us choose you.
There is an beautiful trail on the property along a stream, past waterfalls & river with numerous waterholes u can swim in. The big waterfall is great for an exciting hydro massage. There's loads of wildlife around including: koalas, wallabys, echidnas, platapus, turtles, water dragons, goannas & funky people.
U will have indoor & outdoor fireplaces, fast wifi, a computer with internet access, soundsystem, flat screen TV, projector & screen and hard drive full of music & movies to keep you entertained at night.
We often work at festivals & events doing audio, video & lighting production so you'll get free tickets & invites to great local parties, festivals & events.
