  • Description


    We are situated on a 1 acre permaculture property just 1km from the main street of the stunning hinterland town of Maleny. A boutique yoga studio on the property has 8 yoga and meditation classes a week facilitated by various amazing teachers (less at the moment due to the Covid madness!).

    A short stroll into town past duck filled lakes gives you access to cafes, restaurants, shops, art studios and live music at the laneway market on weekends.

    The hinterland range with its stunning national parks, bush walks, creeks, waterfalls and swimming holes is all just a stone's throw away.

    The property has an abundant garden with many perennial plants, particularly leafy greens. The 8 chickens provide plenty of eggs which means a gourmet omelette is always available just at the door.

    The property is home to a small community of like minded friends (2 in the house, 1 in a caravan and 2 happy & friendly dogs) who are interested in living consciously but believe in having fun while doing it! We are artists, yoga teachers, counsellors, creatives and seekers who are all on a mission to live from the heart. We are pretty social and love the chance to connect, dance, laugh and play, while also respecting each other's space and need for down time.

    The double bedroom is a private room in a shared house, sharing a bathroom/toilet with one other. The verandah has a day bed and hammock to relax and take in the view of the garden, the abundant bird life and the neighbouring cows.

    Help needed with at the moment include several building and art projects so we are particularly keen to meet helpers with some building and other creative skills. Also maintenance of existing food producing gardens, creation of new gardens, painting, shared cooking, cleaning.

    Come and discover the magic of Maleny!
