We are a friendly and open minded family lucky enough to be living on beautiful 16 acre farm 15mins from Sawtell beach (good surf!), just south of Coffs Harbour. We would love to invite you to come and experience our dream, which is to live a more natural, conscious and slower paced lifestyle, completely off the grid and as self sustainable as we can possibly manage. Our farm is set amongst the lush sub-tropical rain forests, with views out over the ocean! We are truly blessed. When we bought the land 5 years ago and it was just a cow paddock, and we have done a lot of hard work building homes and regenerating the land.
We are looking for enthusiastic, hardworking, good fun people that love working outside. We love sharing our knowledge of permaculture, Bowen/massage therapy, Horse behaviour and training and horse therapy with interested open minded people.

Help with Eco Projects
Help around the house
Travellers will get to experience the beauty and serenity of some of the most pristine sub tropical forest area on the east coast, whilst participating in a working model of a more sustainable lifestyle. Hopefully your stay here will educational and inspiring! And importantly you will get a chance to make some new local friends, and have some good experiences with them!! :)
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We require help establishing some permaculture systems ( food forests, veggie gardens, nurseries etc). I have studied basic permaculture and have plans for projects but am also very open to design input from guests! So it will be physical outdoor, get your hands dirty style of work, and also hopefully an educational experience at the same time.
We are surfers, and if the surf is up, then its tools down!! and off to the beach :) I also have a full kit of climbing gear, and regularly go climbing in this area.
There are a few options for accomodation-
- There is a spare room in one of the houses (double bed)
-If you have your own van that would work very well here, there are plenty of places to park, with stunning sunrise over sea views.
All food is provided vegetarians and vegans are welcome, all meals will be eaten in the existing cottages.
Coffs Harbour is the nearest city (25mins) and is easily accessed by train or bus from most east coast destinations.
There are endless adventures to be had in your free time, as there is great hiking, camping and bushwalking and miles of beautiful empty beaches in the region.
We love animals and have several dogs, horses, chickens and guinea pigs.
We are looking for easy going people with a good sense of humour, that are willing to work, and want to have a nice authentic experience in a beautiful location, and make some new friends :)
