  • Description


    Hi i'm Sarah , i ve been out working in central NT during this covid pandemic . And now it is time to return !!! 😁😁😁 I honestly cant wait to get back to my property and have loads of workawayers come and have fun while transforming the place in one massive hit ( even if it means using tents for accommodation if that suits you) 😁😍. So i will be able to take workawayers from september 25th
    The first projects on the list are : house rendering then painting ( will only take a day or 2) , landscaping , making a cute patio area , general clean up of land and wood chopping. So must be willing to get your hands dirty :)
    Overall I am looking for help to build and maintain the property to a self sufficient level while having fun and meeting new people. The accomodation is 2 king single beds in a room in the main house and sometimes the cabin is available however my 23 year old son is there at the moment .
    We have chickens , 4 dogs and a cat .
    Look forward to hearing from you .

    I have travelled extensively and know how nice it is to be able relax in the comfort of a real home .
    I would love to include you in developing our project¸. 1 am keen to share our ideas as well as learn some from you in all facets of building , gardening and quirky projects .
    I am keen to show you a different aspect of australian living outside of the mainstream cities and tourist spots .
    If you are interested ito look around to some beautiful places with waterfalls that tourists dont always get to see.
    Bellingen is a very vibrant multicultural community with a varied social scene from dance classes and yoga to live bands and everything in between which we would enjoy involving you in as much as you would like .
    I also have a couple of pushbikes and yoga mats you can borrow .
    At the moment my 2 sons are at home aged 21 and 23 . Both love yoga, fun times and travelling and enjoy having back packers stay. If they go for a surf or something they are happy to take you along .
