    :WHAT TO DO?

    The hinterland area is a nice area for photography, site seeing , and embraces Vibe, health and well being..

    Local beach and surf is about 1 hour drive from our house , Brisbane City 1.5 hours drive on freeway , and wood-ford 1/2 hour .

    :SOME GUIDE LINES WITH YOUR STAY:

    Unfortunately we do not except dogs or cats on property

    Smoking is permitted ( keep in mind fire hazards and dispose of butts ) ,but away from children and non smokers like my partner.

    Drug abuse or alcohol abuse and domestic violence is not supported while you are here and you will be told to leave or removed that involves law enforcement action.

    Also stealing from us or others is not permitted and you will be told to pack your bags for another journey else where.

    We consider a stay here a safe one for everyone and support equality, culture identity and awareness , mediation strategies if any, clear communication , leadership skills, suggested ideas,
    Health & Safety guidelines, and a place to experience our family ethical living goals and visions.

    Our region gets pretty hot and cold here so please prepare your self for climate change and apply what you need to feel comfortable in wearing while volunteering on the property .

    :ABOUT SAFTEY AND THE WILD LIFE:

    In any event of emergency the local hospital is about 20 min away please be aware of that timeframe, however we will apply knowledge for snake bites and spiders to all that intend to stay, this will be about a 20 min one on one small intervention workshop on what to do if you may get bitten and some identify photos of the species to help you acknowledge the kinds of snakes and spiders here in the hinterland.
    "Safety "is the key here.

    Our property does have snakes and spiders, but most a non harmful unless you hassle them or step on them, if unsure just ask ! "Welcome to Australia " we do protect snakes and spiders in their natural habitat and hope you respect their home too.
    In addition to this property we also have many insects, lizards,and ants..we do have a species of (JUMPING Ants ) they do bite even if unprovoked , they also pack a punch in soreness if you are bitten, the first aid method here is ice on the bite, unless you have an allergic reaction to them,then hospital is the result ..


    #Sustainability practices do apply here:)

    Recycle bins available.



    :OUR BELIEF SYSTEMS:
    Diversity , courage, equality, positive goals , embracement, health, balance,safety, belonging , community , communication, harmony, culture awareness, environment , fairness, sustainability ,
