  • Description

    Description

    We are Joana and Daniel,
    Our travels took us around the world and to many workaways, we were filled with inspiration and ideas. Now we have found a little spot for us in southern Tasmania. Its early days of our project and we have lots of ideas for the land we have 59 acres. Overall we are looking to create a landscape that is rich in biodiversity and can provide for us and our local community.
    A bit about us, we are 28 & 30, we like to work hard and have a lot of fun as we go. We love adventures, hiking, camping, spearfishing, diving and what else comes our way. Joana is Portuguese and Daniel from Australia, we love to be social and spend quality time with people. Always keen to learn and share knowledge.
    We both work for the same company we have a rooster that allows us to be home more often than the normal 9-5pm jobs.
    We are committed to improving our lifestyle and habits, we are aiming to reduce our plastic usage, find healthy food alternatives and create our little piece of paradise to live in harmony with nature.

    Geeveston is a small town in the Huon Valley, it's a charismatic town. The region is known for its good quality food products as well as the picturesque scenery.
    We are surrounded by many different mountains with awesome hikes and the ocean is only around the corner with beautiful beaches.
