    Hello travellers!

    We’ve recently built a wonderfully energy efficient passive solar house, complete with off-grid solar for all our energy needs, rain water collection for all our water needs, and a worm farm waste management system for natural black and grey water processing. We’ve put a lot of work in to achieve a fossil-fuel-free, all-electric, household, with as small an environmental footprint as possible.

    We’re also lucky to live in a beautiful rural/coastal area near Inverloch, Victoria, approximately 1 hour 45 minutes south-east of Melbourne. We are close to some of Victoria’s most famous wildlife and wilderness attractions, including the Penguin Parade at Phillip Island, the Koala Conservation Reserve, and hiking and camping at Wilson’s Promontory (not to mention numerous local beaches and fishing spots only 10 minutes away!).

    With our house complete, we’re now working to progress the landscaping aspects of our project. We’d be very appreciative of a helping hand or two to help complete: a natural habitat pond, the installation of a watering system, garden beds, vegetable gardens, and a small orchard.

    If all this sounds of interest, we’d love to hear from you! We’re ready for an immediate start, and can accommodate stays of anything from a week to a couple of months - let us know what works for you. We have a private onsite caravan for guests, complete with kitchen, shower and toilet, with optional additional use of a secondary indoor private bathroom.

    To find out more about our house and our project in general, feel free to ask us.

    As mentioned above, we’re lucky to be situated in a beautiful rural/coastal area close to some of Victoria’s most famous wildlife and wilderness attractions, including the Penguin Parade at Phillip Island, the Koala Conservation Reserve, and hiking and camping at Wilson’s Promontory. We're also very close to numerous local beaches and fishing spots (only 10 minutes away), as well as local wineries and cheese factories. And with Melbourne only 1 hour and 45 minutes away, day trips and weekend trips into Melbourne are very do-able for all the action available there.
