    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We live close to beautiful beaches, including peaceful swimming spots and surf beaches. There are amazing walks to explore around the area. We would love to help you discover this beautiful part of Australia and would do everything possible to ensure you would have a great experience and holiday while learning how to build a straw bale house!

  • Help


    We do need a lot of help and can offer a variety of chores to suit your interests and abilities. We currently need help with jobs such as sanding and making frames for the windows. As well, we have a small sheep farm and veggie garden which we could use help too.

    We have recently renovated a caravan complete with couch, fridge, kitchen items, and queen size bed. It is sitting between 2 beautiful flame trees and has a private outdoor sitting area and fire pit. You would be welcome to join our family for meals, or if you prefer, we would provide you with food and a quiet place to eat. We are very flexible and would work to make your stay enjoyable! There is a shared bathroom next to the building site for you.
