We are looking for helping hands to work with us on our beautiful 5 acre property.
We are located in a quiet, picturesque spot, near Nimbin, Kyogle, and Cawongla, approximately 45 minutes from Lismore.
Our land varies between rolling pasture, subtropical rainforest and native food gardens. There is a charming house and separate studio, large deck, wood fire oven, and natural pool. We are off-grid, with an excellent solar system, tank water, and very good composting toilet. We wake to birdsong each morning, and are visited by wallabies & koalas during the day and fireflies at night!
While fairly secluded, there are a range of sweet towns nearby, not to mention swimming holes and waterfalls. The property is a stones throw from the stunning Border Ranges National Park which has incredible walks.
The property is comfortable and picturesque as is, but we have visions of landscaping to expand the vegetable garden, build some additional space to house guests, and renovate parts of the house. We would really love to have enthusiastic guests interested in exchanging skills and knowledge with us, and willing to take a hands on role in contributing to our projects!
We are warm and friendly hosts, who enjoy meeting new people. Jem is an environmental scientist with skills in building and creative problem solving, and a good eye for detail. Manon is a passionate clinical psychologist. We have a pet border collie pup named Finn, who melts hearts wherever he goes. We relocated from the city to the Northern Rivers in 2019 to be surrounded by beauty while pursuing a lifestyle that is slower, more intentional, and sustainable.

Travellers will have the opportunity to develop a range of skills and learn about off-grid living, while exploring a beautiful part of the world.
We are looking for help with a range of tasks - puppy sitting, gardening and landscaping, cleaning, basic maintenance and building for those interested. Travellers do not need to have special skills, but we appreciate those who are enthusiastic, energetic, willing to learn, and who also enjoy being outdoors.
Travellers will stay in a private studio located on the property. A comfortable queen size bed is provided with linen and towels. The studio has a wood fireplace, lounge, and private balcony overlooking rainforest. The kitchen, bathroom, and living spaces will be shared with hosts.
Helpers can enjoy the local sights, including visiting World Heritage National Parks, waterfalls, and swimming holes. Nearby towns are charming and full of culture. If travellers have an international licence they may be able to borrow a car if not being used, but otherwise the property is fairly isolated.
