    Hi .. This is a great destination if you like gardening and can work 4 days each week and then enjoying the rest of the week exploring the Central Coast .. walking, rock climbing, kayaking or beaching. I live in a lovely house on the edge of a rain forest. It has a vertical garden and I need to weed, do some strimming (cutting grass). It's not hard work, mostly maintenance but you will need to work unsupervised most of the time. I also need to wash and oil some timber decks and do some painting. If this appeals to you then get in touch. Woy Woy is the closest rail station and it only takes 1 1/2 hours and you are in Sydney. You can go there and back for a night out if you need the excitement! But the Central Coast is just beautiful. There are great walks around Phegans Bay with some of the most beautiful bush in NSW and just behind the house there are cliffs for rock climbing .. but you will need to be experienced and arrange your own equipment. To enjoy the bay I have kayaks. If you want to go to the beautiful beach there is a regular bus in and out of bay .. There is a great deal of wildlife: wallabies, possums, turkeys and all the birds you can imagine, including lyre birds.
