Are you looking for a peaceful rainforest to escape the busy life from as little as a few days or longer? Come and join us in Northern NSW near Mt Warning, 1 hour inland from Byron Bay, 10 minute drive from the gorgeous town of Uki. We are a family of 4 living off the grid with kids aged 10 and 11. Passionate about regenerating the land we are looking for 1-2 people to help with planting, weeding, collecting wood, creative projects and general maintenance in exchange for accommodation and food. Could suit 2 friends travelling, couple or solo traveller looking for a quiet getaway. It's best if you have your own car as we are quite remote.. 2 kms up a gravel road. Good for nature lovers, hikers, mountain bikers ( we have built some trails on our land), meditation and yoga. You can borrow our kayaks to go to nearby Clarrie Hall dam, lots of rainforest hikes nearby and local markets. Can pick up from Murwillumbah. We eat mostly vegetarian food with some fish so can cater for vegetarians, vegans and occasional meat eaters.
DIY and building projects
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Help around the house
You can learn about the local area with lots of wildlife and birds visiting daily. The area is close to rainforest with many bushwalk options. Best if you have your own car to get around as we are quite a way from town. We like to meet new people and share ideas and the kids love to have a chat and learn about other countries.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We need help with landscape maintenance including supporting the natives and keeping the weeds at bay. We also have simple physical work like collecting firewood and general maintenance on the house and garden. We also have creative projects such as building seats from logs and rock paths. There is a lot of active outdoor work here in a remote, peaceful environment.
