  • Description



    We are a family of 5 on a 5 acre property in the beautiful hinterland of Byron Bay. We speak English and Spanish at home as we are both of south american decent and welcome all nationalities.

    Centrally located with 5 mins drive from the quaint village of Clunes, 15mins to lismore and 30 mins to Byron. Just a short 5 minute drive from the stunning rainforests around "Minyon Falls", Rocky Creek Dam & Whian Whian falls. Every 2nd Sunday there is the famous Channon craft market just a 10min drive from where we are.

    Our property gets regular visits from koala's and Wallabies, Goannas and Echidna's as well as an array of birdlife.

    We have 2 gorgeous dogs, a cat, chickens and three piglets.

    We are interested to meet and assist travelling couples (or 2 friends) in exchange for assistance with property maintenance, painting, gardening, weeding and veggie gardening, cleaning, and a few small building projects if the skills are there etc.

    At this stage we are looking for couples (or 2 friends) who are are 24 years old or older.

    Usually we ask for 4 genuine hours per day / 5 days week or 20 hours/week - it can be spread out over the week in whatever way suits YOU!

    In return we offer you accomodation in a 6 berth caravan with access to seperate toilet and shower facilities. The caravan has a fridge and cooking facilities, a double bed and 4 single beds. dinner will be included daily.

    Free WIFI access.

    Oh: We are a Non-Smoking Household...
    Also: we can ONLY accept people who have their own travel-(including medical) insurance!
    And: it really would be best if you have your own car as there is little public transport around here.

    Look forward to meeting you!
    Cristian and Silvina
