  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will benefit from a cultural exchange by immersing themselves in the Australian way of life and learning about the country's unique environment and culture.

    With a focus on gardening and permaculture, travelers will have the opportunity to learn sustainable living practices. Improving their English skills will also be a valuable aspect of the cultural exchange. The beach is a big part of our lives and we often go snorkeling, surfing, and beach combing, offering travelers the chance to join in and learn with our kids.

    Volunteers at our eco-friendly home will have the opportunity to contribute in various ways, including watering plants in summer, weeding, maintaining compost, and general cleaning tasks. Our focus is on ensuring that our children receive the best care possible, and we would love for volunteers to help with play, walks, creative projects and reading. Assistance might be needed for a few hours each day, primarily on weekdays during mornings and after school, with some days spent caring for our energetic toddler.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    Our eco-friendly home was custom designed and built by my husband and offers a unique and comfortable living experience. The home features hemp walls, plywood details, and concrete floors, which keep it warm in winter and cool in summer.

    Your self contained studio is complete with a kitchenette, ensuite, and lounge area. Currently, it is a highly sought-after rental. In addition to the eco-friendly home, we have beautiful gardens that include a vegetable and herb patch where we grow much of our own produce. The surrounding area is perfect for nature lovers, with numerous walking trails through the bush and opportunities to borrow a bicycle and go for a ride around the region.
