  • Description


    Welcome - amongst 7 hectares of native trees close to the river and ocean.
    The property is only 15kms south of Geraldton but having your own vehicle would be a bonus.
    My name is Max I am 53and I share this tranquil place with my two beautiful kids Ruby 10 and Banjo 8 who both love having travellers stay with us.
    You would be staying in the main home or the two storey self contained loft adjoining the workshop.
    Jobs include gardening, feeding the animals, maintaining the aquaponics, building and cooking.
    Time off may be spent swimming, fishing, surfing, quadding or just hanging in the hammock.
    Work hours are between 4 - 5 hours / day 5 days a week but this is flexible depending on weather and leisure activities.
    The block has been an evolving project for the past 30 years with a healthy self-sustainable lifestyle being the main focus.
    Please send through an email request to see our 'Drone Fly Over' of the block.
    We look forward to meeting you in Sunny Greenough....

    I can teach them alternative vegie and fruit growing techniques, furniture and carpentry skills and self sustainable living.
    I have also helped many travellers improve their English.
    Many travellers have caught their first fish whilst staying with me.
    Plus they can get a look at how a sheep and wheat farm is run with my brother next door.
