    Description

    Hi there! We're Jacqui and Mike, a family with two small kids and a couple of friendly dogs who live on a remote 150 Ha wilderness block a couple of hours south of Darwin in the upper hills of the Adelaide River, called Wrigley Creek. We both work part time, and at home we are working to conserve and restore the high quality ecological values of this block.

    Our living areas are surrounded by tropical permaculture food gardens and a dam with waterslide access, plunge pool and Wrigley Creek, which flows most of the year with numerous crocodile-free swimming holes. The bush offers views of the valleys, hills and escarpments.

    Our home is about 1hr 45 minutes south of Darwin and about 30km south of Adelaide River township. Mobile phone reception is limited, although wifi is available for communications. We also have a landline available for use.

    A gorgeous self-contained bush retreat approx. 200m from the main house is available for your accommodation. It overlooks Wrigley Creek, has vehicle access and comes with wifi, aircon, double bed, kitchen, shower and composting toilet. We prefer that you have your own vehicle and there is sealed road access to our driveway.
