    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Workawayers in our place can enjoy the rural lifestyle while being close to town. Being born here Matt knows all the amazing places for fishing, hiking and swimming. I spent extensive time living in other countries and speak three languages. Both of us have seen a lot of the world and like to exchange our experiences.

  • Help


    There are many little projects we need help with such as fencing, building animal shelters, and creating veggie beds. Apart from that, there is always something to fix, a deck to be build or other maintenance work that comes with an old house on lush acreage.

    A car is absolutely necessary as there is no public transport. This area has beautiful bush walks, many empty beaches, and river and creeks to swim in. Coffs harbour is only a 10 minute drive.
