    Our Farm is a beautiful 3 acre hobby farm located at the end of a road, in Kawarren, in the Otway Ranges. We have geese, chickens, goats, dog and cat. We love to garden and have about 50 fruit and nut trees. There is a very comfortable caravan as well as room in the house for visitors. We are located 30 minutes from the Great Ocean Road and numerous stunning waterfalls. Our Farm is connected to the Beechy Rail Trail for gorgeous walks and bike rides and we have a few bikes you can use. Kawarren market is held once a month just around the corner and there is a yoga class each week next door as well ... We can pick up from train station in Colac if required. We have WiFi available. We practice archery, brew beer and other fermented products, ride bikes, bush walk, go to the beach, garden, love board games (Catan etc) always have a building or art project on the go, and love music and nice wine...good food and good company

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We have a hobby farm on a beautiful property in the Otway Ranges. We have a variety of animals, fruit and nut trees and a great vege/herb garden. We often have building and art projects on the go. We live 30 minutes to the great ocean road; there are numerous waterfalls nearby and some beautiful bush walks, including the Beechy Rail Trail for bike riding. Visitors can borrow bikes to explore the area. We love gardening, brewing, and fermenting, and music. I practice shiatsu, love pottery and yoga and dance. We have WiFi available.

  • Help


    We like some help in the garden and with random building projects, and whatever art projects that may be underway. We love it when people cook and help in the kitchen. We really appreciate enthusiastic energetic people who are willing to help with whatever jobs need doing and who can pitch in without needing to be asked...
