  • Description


    We are an open minded gay male couple living on 17 acres of land in the beautiful Northern Rivers , we are 30 minutes from Byron bay, 15 minutes from Lismore and 1 hour from the Gold Coast .
    We are regenerating our farm back from being a cattle farm to native bush, that being a rainforest in the gullies and a koala corridor on the ridge , we have chickens two dogs and a few koalas which hopefully will increase each year as the trees mature.
    We are easy going and active in the community do even though we are secluded there is always an event at a local hall or market .
    The accomodation is a bedroom in the house or sometimes if you’d like a different experience we set up a tent if the weather is good . We have beautiful outdoor showers and a spa where we often watch the sunset . We are pretty good cooks and like to entertain so food is fresh and local .Our home, although beautiful and on acreage is a small timber cottage , , for this reason we generally prefer singles but sometimes can make exceptions if you are happy to stay in our bell lotus tent .
    We would also like to start growing more of our own vegetables and fruit to become self sufficient so would always welcome anyone who can help with that 😊

    We live in a rural community that has a thriving art scene , spectacular natural scenery , that is all readily accessible ! We eat dinner together and are keen to find out as much as possible about our workawayers lives . You may benefit from learning how we have regenerated bare paddocks into rainforest and koala corridor . And rural life versus city life . We are always open to learning from you also .
