  • Description

    Description

    We are in desperate need of some skilled people, carpentry, concreting knowledge( for outside rendering) and someone whom is handy with a chainsaw ( experience preferred) , the bush fires came very close so we need to do more work on making the place safer

    We recently moved away from Byron bay to live on this pristine bush property of 50 acres in the Clarence valley, close to Yamba, MacLean, Grafton and some of the spectacular beaches, Brooms Head and Redcliffe. We are surrounded by wild life and are part of the land for wild life organisation as we love animals.

    We are musicians/artists and have toured the world with our acts Visions of a Nomad and Indigenous theatre show ARC Dreaming. We have vast knowledge on Indigenous Culture, dance and music as well. We have been renovating the house on the property on a shoe string, using recycled materials and doing a lot of the work ourselves, even though we had no idea as to how to go about things as we are musicians and never had built anything in our lives.

    It has been a steep learning curve, our dream is to in the near future turn the property into a bush retreat and a place where work shops can be held on Indigenous Culture but still much work is needed. Its a little piece of Paradise, streaming chrystal clear water in season, use of rainwater, basically you are surrounded by just nature, peace and quiet yet not far away from the living world.
