  • Description

    Description

    We are an easy going couple with two kids.
    We live on a tranquil 110 acre property on the beautiful South Coast of NSW.

    Our place is close to stunning national parks, great hiking and biking trails and some of the best beaches and surf breaks in the country.

    Our property is mostly bushland and rain forest (which is recovering from the Black Summer). The rest we are slowly turning into veggie gardens and food forests using permaculture principles. The chooks, dogs, horses and kids are all pretty much free range.

    We have a separate house for guests which is very private and there are plenty of trails to explore.

    We are currently building and expanding our orchards and veggie patches. As well as some general building and fencing jobs and taking care of the animals.

    We would particularly love to host anyone that has experience in carpentry, permaculture, landscaping, or gardening.
    However, anyone willing to put in a hard days work, have a laugh with the kids, and join us on an adventure or two through the week sounds pretty good to us.
