Its an inclusive household.... if you wish to accompany me on my daily travels, you are more than welcome to. Bottom line of "Cultural Exchange" is that you get out what you put in. I love the exchanging of stories and recipes, I love going out to see live music. I go to markets, go walking, swimming and sight seeing. I attend Kirtan and like peace.
This is a great place because it is big enough for everyone to have their own space when they need it, yet have company when they crave it. It is just about jumping in and being part of a first generation Australian family trying to do their best and be inclusive!
We have 320 acres.. There is always simple maintenance and tidying and beautification work that needs to be kept up to date. There are so many ways to contribute.
In general... I ask people to help in a field that they enjoy as it makes everyone's time nicer.
So if you love gardening.... then ok. Prefer handyman stuff? We can facilitate that. Fancy cooking up a storm? ok! Give us music lessons? We can work with that! Painting? excellent.
There are small projects/jobs that just need doing, but I am really flexible, as long as it is fair.
There is a separate "container bedroom" within Cooee of the main house. Fully insulated with water views.
You use the main house for bathroom and kitchen.
All meals provided... help yourself to breakfast and lunch, sit down meal with family each night.
Everyone is expected to help clean up after dinner!!!!
It is a truly beautiful area where we live. Volcanic craters, lakes, waterfalls, rivers, beaches, limestone caves, historical towns... simply gorgeous. The area where we are has over 240 of Australia's bird species frequent it... so if you are a Twitcher... this will really suit you. Access to world class mountain bike trails, walking tracks, caving adventures and so much more. But you do need your own car.
