  • Description


    I am a musical instrument maker of the Slide Didge. I love any excuse to get out into exploring nature. I used to manage the property as a guest house/health retreat. Now i am developing it as a community within a community attracting short term tenants who are intrested in having the fastest internet in Australia for business.
    workawayers, and a range of returned guests. Family and friends.

    Non Drinking Non Smoking Drug Free Environment Sport, Yoga Mountain Biking Fitness, rock climbing bush walking, creeking, kayaking, waterfalls wild life is our drug.

    It is a one acre retreat in the heart of an eco village, an award winning permaculture designed community. I need help cleaning inside and outside, gardening and general maintanance.

    We are located in sunshine coast hinterland, 150 meters from upper mary river. Sharing 640 acres of common land with a community 250 people strong with village market, bakery, great parties, farming, bamboo forest 17 dams walking tracks, music night in Maleny and much more.

    This is paradise but we are not a permaculture utopia where you get a course in permaculture gardening.

    We are looking for open minded, easy going, hardworking self initiated paradigm shifters who contribute. Share the Love
    P.s I have a property on the Gold coast and also help manage my father's acerage in Brusbane workaways often come along to help out and enjoy these environments too.
    Hope have some good adventures.

    You will experience the best Australia has to offer in a pathway to natural health and sustainable lifestyles. Lots to share about local indigenous culture, alternate lifestyles, transition away from a consumer paradigm.

    A great attitude is important, sometimes the task is challenging sometimes easy. 5 hours a day 5 days a week with weekends off is normal. splitting time up with tea and meal breaks and working with the weather.
