    I currently have at the moment 1 Cat which is indoors all the time - as on my property I also have up to 38 different types of birds .... we are Eco conscious and are only on tank water or bore so please no long showers...water is liquid gold.
    I am a stargazer whom look at the night sky under the natural dome of the West Australian night sky - the business is currently closed due to personal circumstances also have 6 acres of gardens where visitors can come and bring a picnic sit and relax - even before stargazing thorough our telescopes- which i set up and set down of an evening. I relocated to my property in Oct 2015 - where the sky is brilliantly dark but not far from Perth about 1.5 hrs drive - or 1 hour by Train to Toodyay( Avon Link - from Perth - Midland - Toodyay) which is about 17 km away from me and where I locally shop.
    I am after anyone who is interested in Astronomy or the Universe in all its aspects both physically and spiritually and mostly what is needed is in the garden its quite large 6 acres and odd jobs. There maybe some heavy lifting involved but not all the time...
    Someone who may have some gardening experience or building experience would be most welcome, I need you to think for your self.
    I have accommodation and are also Hosts on other sites too.
    Look forward to you visiting me soon :-) .
    I can also speak little German / Swiss ( Swinglish).
    Look forward to seeing you soon ....

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Toodyay and surrounds - I travel often into town of Toodyay and can drop you off for the day if you like as we are 17km out of town it makes it difficult to travel back and forth.
    I am out in the country - there is some things you can do ride a bike or go and see the lady with the Kangaroos she has 100 of them that she looks after... or you can just come and relax and see the West Australian Night Sky.
    To arrive to where i am you can either drive your own car. Or you can travel to us by train Perth - Midland - Toodyay
    There are two trains that stop at Toodyay train station - Avon Link and Prospector for further details google these names to see timetables ect. You do need to contact ahead of time please so I can know what times you are coming either by Train or by car .
