We are a German couple in our 50s, who have lived in Australia for about 30 years. We love the outdoors, animals, the ocean, playing games, dancing and music. We love to meditate and enjoy Yoga. We have both travelled a lot and lived in India for some years and always love to meet travellers.
We live on a Multiple Occupancy, which means that we share a 30 acre piece of land with 4 other owners in a beautiful valley 3 kms out of Mullumbimby. We have two cats ,2 horses and cows.

You will learn a lot about the Australian rural lifestyle in the subtropics and how to maintain horse paddocks, new tree plantings and subtropical gardens. If you are interested in communal living we are happy to share our experiences here. There are usually other workaway workers staying on our property you can also connect with. We have lived a colourful life on three continents and enjoy the mutually enriching exchange between younger and older people.
Mullumbimby, nearby Brunswick Heads and Byron Bay have a lot to offer to any traveller.
Mainly we need help with the paddock, gardens and farmland, also maintaining koala plantings- brush cutting, fencing, pulling out small trees, planting, mulching, weeding, cutting back trees . We also have other projects sometimes; Painting, handyman projects.
Household chores like cleaning, oiling decks, cutting wood, sometimes cleaning or cooking
Self-contained cottage with private outdoor shower, simple kitchen and compost toilet.
We can have flexible food arrangements, we will have a meal together when it fits and you can prepare your own food in your kitchen for the rest of your meals.
As we live in a rural area, it is best if you have a car, however the locals are used to hitchhikers and very friendly. There is a bus service from Mullumbimby ( 4 kms from our place) to Byron Bay and Brunswick Heads. We can also give you a lift into town.
The cottage is ideal for couples.
