  • Description


    We are an adventurous, open, active and fun family of four (4yo and 2yo). We would love to share our home and our love of living right on the middle of a 20 acre lush rainforest only 20 min from the beautiful Burleigh Heads.

    Our family is a very active, camping-loving and festival going bunch that love travel and new experiences!

    We enjoyed living in Europe for 5 years as an English teacher and tour guide with Contiki.

    We eat mostly organic and whole foods, and value family dinner times that we would love to include you in!

    We have no TV in our living space, as we value human connection and real interactions with our kids and our friends and family.

    I work full time, my wife works three days a week and our eldest is at Kindy Tue/Thur/Friday.

    We simply cannot wait to share our lush rainforest home with you!
