Accommodation is in a private guest quarters attached to our owner built house.There is a bedroom and separate bathroom and self contained out door kitchen (under cover)We love to share meals at least 2 times a week.

    We are passionate about organic food and sustainability and also enjoy company of travellers, conversation over a meal together and also working together.

    Our farm is beautiful and borders the Wilsons River, we have extensive remnant rainforest, and walks and swimming in the waterholes are part of the experience.
