  • Description


    Far South Coast N.S.W - Sapphire Coast - Secret Valley - Kinda Off Grid, I do have power but no cellular but do have great Satellite WIFI and a land line. I live on a 200 Acre property which is mainly forest and with 1.5KM of rocky river frontage (Towamba River). Amazing wildlife here and a 2WD dirt road. The property has separate accommodation to house, or your own room and bathroom in house. I can accommodate 5-6 people at a time, more if traveling by camper van or tent. I live 1.25hr drive from N.S.W Snow Fields and am a 30 minute drive from the coast with perfect beaches and great surfing.
    I have a dog and 2 cats.
    I have been a host on Couch Surfing for years I am "vouched" and have plenty of guest reviews for you to read. (Search CS Rocky Hall NSW 2550)
    The property is located halfway between Sydney and Melbourne and is a 2.5 hour drive from Canberra.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have worked in Film, TV and Music Industry and run my own businesses for many years. I am an active member of the N.S.W Regional Fire Service (R.F.S). I enjoy to be around creative people who like to learn and also teach, everyone can learn something new from anyone, as long as they listen. I love to cook, if you have any cultural or family recipes I would love to learn how to make them.

    There is always work in the surrounding paddocks such as fencing and posting, maintenance on the out buildings, work in the orchard, working in the large vegetable garden, keeping noxious weeds at bay, collecting firewood, mowing and slashing paddocks. I am also redecorating the exterior of the main house and re-fitting a log cabin. You don't need to have a trade, but if you do let me know? We can work out hours, so you are not just working but can enjoy the area too. I can find something for everyone's skill level and likes ALL are welcome as long as you have a good positive attitude.
