    We are a new off-grid, family-run hostel in a peaceful forest on a hill in Tasmania, Australia. We are a friendly large family, and we love welcoming travellers from all backgrounds, religions, and nationalities. We love cooking fresh food from the garden and sharing our table with travellers. We love books, music, travel, history, languages, and meeting people from all over the world.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will learn about off-grid living with solar power, wood-fueled hot water, rainwater, and composting toilets. You will be surrounded by native forests and our amazing wildlife. We are a culturally mixed family with a lot of traveling experience and we love to introduce people to life on our island state.

    We are open about our faith in Jesus Christ. You may ask questions about this while you are here, and we are happy to answer. We are also happy to pray with you. But if you do not want to have spiritual discussions, you are still welcome.

    Help

    My husband and I and our young family run our hostel. We employ a cleaner during our busy season. We need help from workawayers with simple outdoor/gardening jobs like:
    path edging, digging garden beds, mulching, and weeding.
    If you have more experience, we would love your help in wood splitting, fencing, building a chicken house or a deck, etc.
    As long as you enjoy working in nature and getting your hands dirty, you will be happy here.

    We are only 30 minutes from the capitol city, Hobart, a quaint and artistic city on the waterfront. We are close to several national parks with lots to see and do. We run a shuttle every day to local bus routes. This is a friendly, safe region, with lots of opportunities for farm work and for exploring wilderness areas.
