  • Description


    We are a small family of 4, 2 adults and 2 boys , aged 20 and 15. We live on a 5 acre hobby farm in the Byron hinterland. We are 40 minutes drive from the beach. We have a very quite and natural surround, with wallabies often seen as well as an abundance of bird life, and the occasional koala sighting. There are avocados, bananas, pineapples, varies citrus, and star fruit growing. Unfortunately the recent drought has reduced most of the harvest. We hope for better output in November 2020. Currently we are restoring a 50 year old cabin to council standards, clearing areas for bush fire safety, and rehabilitation.
