    Description

    Welcome to Australia :)

    ***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.***

    Presently I am working on getting the permaculture gardens ready for Autumn planting and there are some other gardening tasks that are a priority here. We need help with housekeeping, cooking and child care at the moment whilst Mum is busy working and finishing some studies that are due in April. We are also preparing for my daughter's birthday party.

    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 5 hours Workaway a day, only 5 days a week, then this is it.

    Your hosts would be myself and my six 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.
