  • Description

    Hi, we are Mat and Rachel and we love travelling and finding new experiences along the way. We have travelled to 24 countries and have greatly enjoyed meeting all types of people and making great memories. Due to covid our international travels have been put on hold so we have made the most of the opportunity by deciding to travel around Australia in a camper van.
    We are kind, open hearted people who are keen to learn and very willing to help.
    Through workaway, we are looking to meet new people, share stories and learn new skills while on our travels.
    We are young, energetic, adventurous and love trying new things. We love the outdoors, living sustainably, cooking good nourishing food, animals, children and nature. We are very interested in any workaway involving permaculture, off-grid living, natural building, community living, sustainability, animals and good people. We strive to create meaningful connections with other likeminded individuals and appreciate the opportunity to
    We have our own campervan so we don't require accommodation to be provided. We also have some cordless power tools with us including a drill, impact driver, reciprocating saw and multi tool which we are happy to use and share while on our workaway.

    - Workaway in Italy doing maintenance and gardening
    - Volunteering in an elephant sanctuary in Cambodia looking after the elephants and building a bridge
    - Renovating our own house and assisting friends and family with various hands on projects
    - Olive picking in Bathurst, NSW
