    NEXT AVAILABILITY IS JUNE 2019.

    We have an 11-acre property in a beautiful valley in the hinterland of Byron Shire with a seasonal creek and set in rainforest nestled in a valley below Mount Jerusalem National Park. We have a real Garden of Eden with many fruits growing. You will enjoy the tranquility, many beautiful birds and other Australian animals in their natural habitat.

    Our property is inland from Mullumbimby, so 15 minutes to town, 35minutes to Byron Bay or 25 minutes to Brunswick Heads. There is a local general store only 4km down the road. There is no public transport to our property but we can arrange to collect you from town.

    We are a mature age couple and looking for help on our hobby farm with a variety of interesting projects including gardening, landscaping, fruit tree maintenance, rock work, renovating/building, mechanical and home maintenance. We had a lovely workaway couple from France help us build a fruit stall earlier this year. We enjoyed each others company and learned from each other also. We had another your lady from argentina help rebuild our vege gardens and another young lady from Sydney help with some gurney projects.
    You will learn skills from an experienced and knowledgeable tradesman who is an ex builder and industrial arts teacher.

    Non-smokers & no pets.

    We look forward to meeting some interesting people.

    Dave and Robyn

    Help

    We have mostly outdoor projects, We would like some help at the moment with some tree pruning to make mowing and slashing easier. We then stack the pruning's into burn piles for the winter. We also have a project of renovating a classic car. We are still dismantling and cataloging all the parts. We are also creating small rock borders around some freshly laid concrete pathways to tidy the edges. The rocks are collected from our property. Another project is to remove some plants from one garden and replant them along the creek levy. Then there is maintenance of the vegetable gardens, weeding and other odd jobs.
