  • Description


    We are a small family of 3 living on a beautiful shared property in an intentional cooperative community. We have a young 15 month old daughter and are always looking for an extra set of hands to help us around the house and property, ranging from babysitting, cooking, cleaning, gardening, creative and constructive projects.

    The community is Just 1 hour south of Byron bay, we share 200 ha of elevated coastal bush land overlooking the spectacular Bundjalung National Park and Pacific Ocean. There are 12 households with over 40 community members who share this beautiful land along with many native animals, including kangaroos, wallabies, goannas, birds, and some endangered species.

    We live completely ‘off-grid’. This means we harvest our own water, and generate power from the sun. On Fridays we have a community dinner where each household brings a plate of food to share, and every second Saturday we have a community work day.
