    We may be able to help someone with their visa as we are in the bushfire area 2453 postcode.
    We may qualify to help you with a visa as we are in the bushfire affected area.


    Please help restore and maintain this biodiversity hotspot after the fires. This rich biodiverse forest is home to 29 threatened species of animal and plant, we have been busy working to clean up after the bush fires, feeding and watering, putting up nest boxes, erosion control, fire trail maintenance, and doing lots of animal survey with professional ecologists. Glad to say recently we found 5 koalas, 8 greater gliders, yellow bellied gliders, glossy black cockatoos, all threatened or vulnerable species. We also have hundreds of other native species present.

    We need some help in restoration and maintenance on the lands to give these and many more species a healthy future.

    We also need help around the house and in our large organic vegetable gardens.

    Our home is located on a magnificent forested conservation property. It adjoins World Heritage country and is surrounded by vast areas of forested land offering spectacular scenery. Wonderful hiking opportunities into some spectacular wilderness country.

    Our place is not resort style but it is welcoming, comfortable and a beautiful down to earth home.

    We ask for 5 hours a day or equivalent 5 days a week and we can offer you comfortable accommodation with a private bedroom, internet, healthy meals and a welcome friendship. We can cater to most diets and we are flexible about help exchange.

    Our place is off the grid with well established organic gardens.

    We appreciate and expect social distancing, extra care and kind consideration of others welfare in these pandemic conditions. Please do not apply if you are unwell, we are in a very vulnerable health category. Thank you.

  • Ayuda


    This is my wish list but whatever you can do towards helping would be appreciated:

    We have been impacted by bushfire around our place in the forest, it burnt out a lot of country and it is recovering. Our houses are OK and comfortable but much needs to be restored. There are still tasks relating to the bushfire recovery.

    This week we are planting rainforest trees, we always need help in the vegetable gardens, which we depend upon. There is good organic food being produced which we eat every day. There is some work around the place with general maintenance.

    A helping hand would be very welcome, any contribution towards achieving these goals would be helpful and much appreciated.
