Im seeking some can-do folks to come and help out on our amazing 120 acre bush property about 25 minutes from Bryon Bay, 15 mins from mullumbimby and 30 mins to lismore. I live on 3 acre share of an intention community with 6 other families in a beautiful valley, with nature abounding. Our land is a wildlife reserve with plentiful native animals and no cats and dogs allowed.
I live in my big beautiful Queenslander house, which I moved to the land in 2000, with my 11 year old son and visitors coming and going. My partner lives near MT warning and he also Stays here part time. We are not conventional or conservative people and have done alot of personal growth work and traveling.I am both a counsellor and artist and work both from home and in a remote indigenous arts centre. I am passionate about making the world a better place, indigenous Australia, women`s work and raising children.
ITs very beautiful and peaceful here so if you are looking for a break from the party scene, this is the place for you!
Im looking for helpers who are interested in doing work exchange for accomodation. I really need help with some building, renovating, plastering and helping clean up areas around my place There is also general house work and chicken help.
Also I have a group of indigenous women travelling from Arnhem land and coming to stay with me and could do with a hand hosting them.
You must be earthy, mature, open-minded, and happy in your own company. You need to be able to cope with nature and the bush as we on on the edge of a national park, so the odd spider, wallaby, big lizard or python may be seen! If this panics you too much, my place is probably not for you.
I like to be clear and frank with communication so there are no preconceived expectations that I cant meet and as such I will tell you everything as best I can, so you can assess whether my place is right for you. I love it if you are also straight with me as I am a sensitive person, and can always feel it, if someone is not happy. So being on the same page and honest is important to me.
Accomodation options could be short or long term. Short term in my downstairs self contained flat, or if you want longer term and we are a match, I have a funky bus and some caravans available.
Unlimited Wireless internet available.
If you are interested, please send me an email with your phone number and some of your details & photo if possible. Id like to know your age, smoking, english level, nationality, if you have a car or not, your gender and work skills & experience.
Thanks so much.

We live in incredibly beautiful nature which is very pristine. Because we have no cats or dogs here, there is plenty of wild life- walabies everywhere, bandicoots and many others.
If you want a beautiful retreat like place, that is quiet and away from the party scene- my place is for you. Its lush and green and very peaceful.
We are living an alternative to the nuclear family paradym, so you will also experience an alternative lifestyle here as well as having a taste of what it feels like to live on a community .
At the moment I need help with many different projects- there is the usual tidying up around my place and deep cleaning, then if you are skilled there is building projects, painting , paving and plastering to do, I usually wait until we can work out what jobs would suit you best and take it from there.
I need helpers who are mature and have some life experience and skills- my dreams are - building, painting, gardening etc. You must have good english and be able to work independently. If you have your own car that is great. You need to be open-minded, mature, and happy in your own company as I do not have heaps of time to hang out and chat. As we live in nature, you need to be able to cope with the odd spider as we are very close to the forest.
My usual exchange is 4- 5 hours per day for food and accomodation. 10- 12 hours a week if just accomodation. Happy for you to have the weekends off. I need helpers who are grown up and can take care of themselves, cook for themselves and be independant. i do not have a regular routine, so need flexiblilty and an ability to go with the flow. HAving said that, I will try and work in with you as much as possible.
We are happy if you want to stay long term if we get on well. I enjoy having young 'can do' energy around and have fond memories and made many friends from this site & helped lots of travellers get their 2nd working holdiay visa- though unfortunately due to the government changes, I can no longer offer this.
Accomodation is a self contained flat if its available, or funky bus or a couple of self contained caravans with big deck & outdoor kitchen, not far from my place, amongst the trees.
On your time off you can visit Byron bay, or go to the forest- minyon falls, bush walks or just hang out.
I have good wifi, so you can also keep in touch with all your freinds and family.
There are a few local school bus's that you can take to get places or there are generally rides with other residents from the community going here or there, so rides are possible. However, having your own car is by far the easiest way to get around the hills of Byron bay!
