Our whole family loves art, and we have many artists and musicians come to stay. We share meals and discussions on many topics. We have a library of over 1000 books covering art, history, and philosophy, among other things. Minehaha Reserve is a sacred Aboriginal site, and was the birthing place for the local Darug and Gundangara people. We have 32 species of native birds on our property, as well as many possums and other marsupials.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We usually have several projects going, for example at the moment we are building a wood-fired hot-tub, so any building experience is appreciated. The garden is mostly native, and we are developing a veggie and herb garden. There is always help needed in the kitchen, with cooking and cleaning.
We will accommodate you in a freestanding cabin on the back of our property. It is a small, simple room, surrounded by bush and grasslands. You will have full use of the house, including kitchen, laundry and a bathroom with a deep, luxurious bath.
Katoomba is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Southern Hemisphere. It is famous for the Three Sisters lookout, but there are many stunning lookouts and walks into the valley and along the cliffs. There are several backpacker hostels, and the local nightlife is rich with live music and many restaurants and cafes. There is a bus every hour from our home into town (about 20 minute ride).
