    Description

    Hi Workawayers,

    My husband and I live on a beautiful 11-acre property with a comfortable spacious house, with your own queen-sized bedroom. We are situated in Fernleigh which is a 15-minute drive to the Lennox Head beaches, 15 minutes to Ballina, or 20 minutes to Byron. We are near the beautiful village of Newrybar, and not far from Alstonville, Lismore, Bangalow, Mullumbimby and Brunswick Heads.
    I am a writer, and I run a small equine charity, Equus Alliance, so I usually have between two to four horses on my property. I also run an FB page, The Horse Listener, and I do Equine Facilitated Learning, essential oil therapy and horse training.
    I would prefer helpers who have some horse experience, however, I do make exceptions from time to time. yWe have plenty of gardening and maintenance work, and some housework, plus dog-walking.
    The usual workaway rules apply - four to five hours work a day, one day off a week and three meals a day are provided, but any extra treats, or special dietary foods need to be supplied by yourself. We are often a bit flexible on hours depending on what is going on, weather etcetera.
    We are currently only taking individual helpers, not couples, and I would prefer that you have a minimum of horse experience.

    Travellers will learn a lot here! My husband is very good with building and machinery, and caring for the land. I am a journalist, writer, editor and horse person, with a large network of people close by. I can teach horse skills, creative writing, and general creativity support.

    Accommodation

    At the moment the helper accommodation is a small but comfortable room in the house which has a queen-size bed in it. Occasionally the studio accommodation may be available.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    This is a creative household with lots of people coming and going. I can help volunteers get into Byron and surrounding towns, so a lot of people learn to surf and spend a lot of time at the beach. There's also whale-watching in the winter, and easy access to the Gold Coast and Brisbane.
