    We live across the road from a beautiful wild beach on the East Coast of NSW and a short drive / bus ride m from Coffs Harbour.

    We need help with gardening, housekeeping, cooking and possibly child care.
    If you are looking for a peaceful place surrounded by natural beauty where you can slow down, relax and rejuvenate yourself in between travelling and while completing your WorkAway, then this opportunity could be right for you.

    Your hosts would be myself and my seven year old daughter, we love hosting people from around the world!

    We are a nature loving family who enjoys yoga, swimming in local rivers, playing on our local beaches and exploring our natural surroundings. We also enjoy camping adventures and beach picnics.

    We eat a healthy, mainly organic, sometimes vegetarian diet and enjoy cooking whole food treats.

    If you enjoy the company of children and have a positive can do attitude this workaway opportunity could be right for you.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We live in a sub-tropical, unique area of regional NSW, on the East Coast, close to Coffs Harbour at a beachside location.

    You would have your own large furnished room with a separate entrance, comfortable queen bed and an ensuite. You can sleep here to the sounds of the ocean, it's very peaceful.

    We are a nature loving family who enjoys yoga, swimming , walking and exploring our natural surroundings. We also enjoy camping adventures and beach picnics.

    We eat organic fruit and vegetables from a local farm (Synchronicity Farm at Nana Glen). We eat a healthy, organic, mainly vegetarian diet and enjoy cooking whole food treats.

    Please note that public transport is limited from this location and it would be best that you have your own car if you are planning to Work Away here, however it's not necessary. There is a bus stop up the road with several buses going to and from Coffs Harbour and the surrounding areas each day except not on Saturday afternoons and not on Sundays. I can transport you to and from places when I am travelling that way. We live across the road from a beach so there's plenty of relaxing opportunities to explore nearby. We also live in the middle of a coastal walking track, so if walking is your thing, then that's there to explore too in both directions, north and south.There is usually a bike or two here for you to use.

    Sundays are usually Fun-days here where we do something fun on Sunday Funday... and explore the natural beauty of the area eg canoeing on the Bellinger River.

    Wifi and Netflix are available at the property free of charge.

    We are a fun loving family looking forward to welcoming you into our home. Please note that we have a pet cat here .
