  • Description


    UPDATE: The south coast is suffering large bushfires at the moment and fires burn just a few kilometres from my door step. I don't feel that it would be safe to have anyone here at the moment, so I will not be taking on any voluteers for the time being. If my home still stands by March then I will begin looking at resuming the project. I wish you the best of luck in your travels!

    I live in a super awesome location! It's right across the road from the beach, with a massive backyard and a three bedroom house! At the moment I'm working on building a coffee van/food van from scratch. The aim is to make food with as much local produce as possible and very little waste! Additionally I'm aiming to grow enough food to live off and use in the business. It's so exciting!
    The house has a laundry, computer, printer, unlimited wifi, home gym, records and more! You're free to use any of it to your leisure!

    Ah, I almost forgot! This is some stuff about me; I'm a bit weird, I love healthy eco living, I surf, cook and read books! I've been a volunteer in the past just like yourself and I've also been to about 20 countries, so I might even be familiar with your culture. Right now I'm learning Japanese, piano, Latin dancing and filmmaking. Always keen to learn more!!

    Note: If you check the map, it shows my place is in the middle of the ocean. I definitely live on land hahaha... or maybe I'm a super billionaire with a private island?? Who knows, maybe you'll just have to find out!!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have an awesome group of friends who live in the area and we usually do dinner parties, go to events, do yoga, and other healthy stuff. (we also like to cut loose, but in some moderation!)
    I've got a couple surf boards too, so if you're into it we can go for a paddle, or I can show you a thing or two. This whole area is incredibly beautiful, so I'll show you around to all the good places in my time off!

    Hours and accommodation are all totally flexible, it really depends on what you can do and how often you want to do it!

    I only ask that you're respectful of the space and tidy up after yourself of course. I love a clean homely space!
