    Hi Hi!

    We are looking for happy, enthusiastic, hardworking and self motivated people who love working outside and helping with maintaining and projects on our rural property. Experience building, plumbing, electrical or with trees and veggie gardens ideal :-)

    We have an off grid barn / shed which we are converting into our home, 37 acres, 30 minutes south of Margaret River, close to Augusta in Western Australia

    We are off grid, we have a small solar electricity installation and a generator.

    We are a well travelled couple, have been travelling the world since our 20’s and continue to do so! We live between Bali, Perth and Margaret River. We enjoy yoga, hiking camping, great food, great conversations, mountains and the forests. We are just setting up this account, but Taryn lived in New Zealand for the last 10 years where she created Fruit Vans and Fat Cat Travellers Community and received 100’s of volunteers in the community over the last decade :) So if you need reviews look there :) We are excited to welcome you to our latest venture near Margaret River!

    We are looking for people who enjoy the outdoors and who can help us with our small projects - from gardening, to building, to cleaning!

    Property is private with beautiful views and 6 km from Hamelin Bay (a beautiful beautiful beach!) and Boronup forest. A simply magical place.

    We look forward to meeting you! Brett and Taryn
