  • Description

    Description

    We are a family of four living on the intentional community of Tuntable falls near nimbin. This is one of the biggest communes in the world and it is dedicated to living in harmony with the environment. We live on the edge of the Nightcap National Park which has some of the most ancient trees in Australia. We were affected by the bushfires last year so work helping us COUNTS TOWARDS YOUR 88 DAYS if you are on the working holiday visa.
    We are a musical family and we have spent a lot of time travelling and living in Europe with our music. Our house is really comfortable and big, with wifi and musical instruments to entertain you. There are lots of beautiful rainforest trails to hike, swimming holes nearby and we are close to Nimbin, the centre of the alternative living movement of Australia. There are local markets once a week and community gatherings too.

    Hi! We are Hannah, Cash, Eleusis and Cello. We have a big piece of land where we grow fruit trees and we are planning to build a house there so we need help with landscaping/clearing/planting/fruit picking etc.
    We also have 2 small kids so we appreciate help cleaning, mowing, and working in the garden.
    Anyone with any building expertise is also welcome as we often have small building projects around the house that my partner takes care of, but an extra set of hands goes a long way!
    We literally live on the edge of a subtropical rainforest, and its very wild and natural so best suits people who are adventurous and love nature.
