  • Description


    House of four lovely ladies and a lop eared rabbit named George Clooney. We live in a home on the Yarra River in central Melbourne. The home is located on an amazing bush block with space for camping, fire circles, kayaking, slack lining and fire bath adventures. We celebrate open communication, caring relationships, meditation,movement practices, shared cooking and feasting. We have created a warm, communal lifestyle and would love to share our home with workaways with similar values. We all are busy with our day to day projects and work schedules which include social work, counselling, building a mediation garden, osteopathy, geology and re-wilding workshops.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have a warm, communal home and would welcome workaways into our community. We live in Melbourne's inner north, a short bike ride or trip on public transport to the city. This is a beautiful, vibrant area with a lot going on. We would love to share the live music, creative happenings, hobbies and our friends with guests. We are all big travellers and adventures and look forward to hearing about the culture and stories of workaways who come to stay.

  • Help


    We have few projects on offer.
    1.Building a chicken shed.
    2. Building a stand for our kayaks.
    3. General gardening and development of bush block.
    4. Painting of indoor rooms in house.
    5. Stacking of wood pile.
    All of the jobs are physical and require a level responsibility and ability to be self guided. The work will occur most often during times that we working so you will need to be comfortable working independently. Considering the nature of the work people with gardening and building experience would be most welcome.

We eat healthy, organic, unprocessed, mostly vegetarian meals. When we do eat meat we choose ethical and sustainable options.
