    ...The Quiet Retreat , a Lifestyle Property...!!!

    With real hard working helpers, I started to built the house and clear the land 20 years ago , so this place is a BIG,BIG credit to all my helpers who worked hard , enjoyed their stay and left their footprint..!!!

    I feel that for the helpers who come here , maybe , apart from the usual work , self improvement/development could be one of their priorities... a good library of books is available and some very nice music...

    In the past I practiced meditation/looked at Zen/Osho/Gurdjieff etc ...maybe , hopefully , some of it is now incorporated into the life here , despite my German heritage/handicap ...LOL...

    Bush walking , connecting and appreciating nature, gardening, enjoying life music , that is my wife's specialty...

    Solar and wind power only / off the grid / clean air / clean water...Phone signal Yes , but No Wi-Fi , it is free in St Marys...

    Have a good stay in Tasmania...!!

    *️️️️️*️️️️️*️️️️️ We would like to take helpers for 1~2 weeks. Sorry we cannot take long term stays and unfortunately only one helper a time....!!!!

    *️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️*️️️️️️️️️️️️️ Please , initial contact by workaway e-mail and please do not include us in bulk mail outs , we do respond pretty quickly....Thanks...!!!!

    Old German born bloke with lots of stories to tell....Chinese born wife is excellent in connecting to nature...a good library of books is available and some very nice music...And hearty vegetarian meals...

    A Private Forest Reserve , 80 acre property, not a farm , not a party place , very very quiet here , lots of bush and lots of native animals...yes, wallaby's , wedge tail eagles , wombats , spiders , very friendly leeches and the odd lazy black snake , LOL...
    To like it here , you would prefer the bush more than the city and probably have a backpack , not a suitcase with make up and fashionable clothes...and you would be independent , more than happy to spent time by yourself....!!!!
