  • Description


    We are part of a community, consisting of around 25 people, 9 households, situated on 340 acres and surrounded by state forest (Fryers Ranges) on 3 sides, Box Ironbark Country.
    The community has been designed on Permaculture Principles.
    We are situated about 15 minutes outside of Castlemaine, a wonderful alternative town.
    Our interests are meditation, yoga, alternative lifestyles, we love travel and meeting people.
    We are relaxed but hardworking.
    There is always projects to do, be it general building maintenance or building projects, painting, gardening

    We have wonderful lake to swim in and great country to walk.
