    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Learn about the local life here in the Mary Valley. We have very close connections with the eco village "crystal waters" as we were original residents there. It's a 15minute drive away so we can visit there sometimes and let our hair down while listening to the great local musicians play and exploring the way of life in the permaculture village.

    While here on the property however there will be lots to learn and we have a great fire pit area where we socialise from time to time. Sometimes we set up the amp and play guitar and sing from our big balcony that surrounds the house.

    The animals here are friendly and fun to play with. We have 2 cute dogs and 2 sweet cats. 4 friendly chickens that love cuddles and also a pet snake!

    There's lots of rivers and waterfalls in the area to explore as well!
    Access to food in garden and fruit trees

  • Accommodation


    Luxurious large 10 man sized tent with 2 rooms inside. We've made a lounge room and a bedroom in there. TV screen for laptop. There's a nice comfy bed and a couch. Carpets. A fan and a heater. Cooking facilities. Table and chairs. Storage space nearby. Your own fridge in the shed nearby.

    We have made the tent feel like a real home! There's a huge tarp over the top to protect it from all weather and it's in a shady position right next to the house for easy access to the toilet and shower inside. Some meals with family.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We would prefer someone with a drivers licence and has a car, or at least prospects to get a car. There is no public transport here but we do drive to the town almost every day. Would just be much easier if you had your own vehicle at some point.

    Local sites of interest:
    Booloumba creek and rainforest.
    Crystal waters eco village.
    Glasshouse mountains.

    We can also paint and make sculptures in our free time.

    You can use the fire pit any night and chill out under the stars!
