  • Description


    I live independently in a large double story home on 1 acre of land on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria.
    The beach is only a 300 mt walk from my front door and the 12 Apostles about a 1 hour drive. There are also lots of rainforest walks and waterfalls very close by. Lots of opportunity to surf, kayak, bike ride on great mountain tracks or scenic roads and walk the Shipwreck coast along the iconic Great Ocean Walk. There is an abundance of wildlife around and you can even find a Koala or two in my backyard. I have chickens that free range around the yard as well. We all live in harmony.

    I offer a very basic but fully powered campervan with a double bed, heating, small kitchenette with fridge and camp stove. Please understand that there is no toilet/bathroom attached to the van and we will share those facilities in the main house. There is also Wifi and Netflix freely available to workawayers. I am happy to share my own upstairs space with you as needed (BnB guests do not come into my space) and I'm happy to share my pantry with you but you may need to buy any special dietary items you require.
