  • Description


    We are a family living on a 120 acre property in the beautiful rainforest hinterland 20 minutes drive from the idyllic beaches of Byron Bay, NSW.
    Our property runs adjacent to the Goonengerry national park, with many walking trails, creeks, waterfalls and abundant wildlife, koalas, wallabies, cockatoos, bandicoots, pythons and interesting birdlife.
    We have three young adult kids, Sam 19 and Jack 23 are living at home at the moment and Lucy 21 is a musician and lives in Sydney but visits from time to time. Sam is a keen soccer player and we have a full size goal at home, Sam always enjoys sharing his passion for football with other enthusiasts. Jack is a plumber and works locally. We have a large well equipped kitchen and enjoy cooking. Tanya is a keen baker and we have a small business baking yummy fudge brownies, she is quite creative and also designs jewellery. David works as a builder and carpenter, he built our house which still has some unfinished projects that we could do with some help with. We have both also worked in the restaurant industry and would classify ourselves as a foodie family.
    We love nature, watching a good movie ,music and good conversation. We are interested in the Workaway experience being a rewarding exchange for all.

    What else ...

    The Byron Shire has some of the most beautiful beaches in Australia. The gorgeous hinterland offers great opportunities for walks, local waterholes, hiking and exploring. There are quite a number of other towns around the shire that are interesting to visit. There are many great craft and farmers markets in the area, regular music festivals and live music. We go to town regularly and so do other members of our community if you are looking for a ride into town.
