  • Description


    Our home is located on a lakeside 80 acre property, in Lorinna, in the North West of Tasmania.
    50 acres is a spectacular protected forest nature reserve, with a 2.2 km walking track, which takes you down to Lake Cethana.
    Fully off grid and we are moving towards sustainable living.
    The property has an established orchard and a beautiful vegetable garden, all needing ongoing maintenance.
    We have pets who are a big part of our life, chooks, geese, guinea pigs and 2 sheep!

    We have star link internet, allowing great access to the www... At present this isn't in the log cabin, but we are looking into an extension so the log cabin can have great internet too. If needed - the small spare room in the house has good Internet, and can be used, after discussion and coming to shared meaning, for work.
