  • Description


    I invite you to join a small group of friends on our peaceful & tranquil land. We are abundant in fruit trees, vegetable gardens and wild life. We are increasingly becoming more self sufficient in food production and are committed to living in harmony with nature as much as we can. We work together each morning, eat together and create beauty together through group or individual creative projects. .

    There is always much to do on the land, in the gardens and around the home, however in coming to this place we are not interested in welcoming people just to do the work. I would like to welcome friends who want to have a break from life in the society and who want to really experience what is means to life a more simple and natural life learning from mother nature.

    In joining us you would commit to a stay of a minimum of two weeks and be physically fit and strong and healthy.

    Food is cooked fresh each day using produce from the gardens - we are vegetarian but can also cater for vegan diets.
    The accommodation would be either a shared dormitory or tents depending on what is available.

    We carry out 3.5 hours of work each morning ( Monday to Friday) and 1 hour on Saturday morning. During the weekends there will be group activities for you to participate in. The afternoons are for your own personal or group creative projects. Be it music, art, dance, woodwork, yoga, meditation. We have a music room and ample art supplies for you to enjoy. Each evening we gather together in friendship to celebrate the day.

    During your time with us we ask that you don't go out and give a well deserved rest to you mobile phone and the internet so you have less distractions and more time for being with yourself, your thoughts and your emotions.

    We are free from cigarettes, alcohol and any kind of drugs (including those believed to be used medicinally) and we welcome friends who can live this way as well.

    If you are seeking this type of experience than please message me with your phone number so I can share more. We would love to hear from you!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our land is a tranquil place with kilometres of bush walking tracks which are amazing to explore in your free time and a creek where you might like to swim. We have found that it has been a wonderful place for people to rest and reconnect with themselves on their busy travelling schedule. A place to stop and feel and just be for a while. Living simply and in harmony with the natural environment and away from the society gives most friends who visit a real sense of joy and inner peace. You will also participate in group activities that will assist you on your journey here.
