  • Description

    Description

    This is a 3,000 acre, remote, spectacular property in the south eastern corner of NSW. 50km from remote, unspoilt beaches, surrounded by National Park in a hidden valley. Wildlife (kangaroos, wallabies, dingoes, eagles plus loads more) live outside the windows.

    We are currently developing a high end eco corporate retreat which is intended to be complete by January 2020. Workawayers will be involved in the fine tuning details of completion of this retreat while enjoying staying in the luxury accomodation built for the guests.

    We are great travellers, been to many parts of the world and always enjoy meeting new people who can tell us a bout where they come from.
    The farm work is not always easy but it’s rewarding, we pay well and we value everyone’s contribution.

    I am based in Sydney, happy to meet with people in the city before they travel to the site to alleviate any concerns about being stuck in the outback with someone you dont 'connect' with.

    We pay for and arrange your travel from either Sydney or Melbourne.

    Workawayers will experience Australian wilderness at its best in a sustainable, off grid architect designed home. Workawayers will learn about an award winning transformation of a farm that once was cattle oriented and is now focussed on sustainable outcomes for an environmentally sensitive landscape.

    In addition, Workawayers will be treated fairly, fed well and we strive to make your stay one of the highlights of your trip to Australia. It’s not hard, this property is simply spectacular.
