    My name is Annie. My partner Jacqui and I work in the health department of NSW. We enjoy everything that coastal/rural life brings us. We enjoy great food and wine, music, film and have traveled extensively. I have a daughter who’s married and lives between Australia and Europe and visits us. We live on 25 acres on the Moruya River on the far South Coast of NSW. We have pets; chickens, a friendly cat and dog.

    Our place is in the heart of the bush, and we have daily visits from kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, and a vast array of bird life.

    We are a 15 minute drive from the ocean (many beautiful beaches), as well as the town of Moruya, which has a farmers market Tuesday afternoons and a general/food/flea market Saturday mornings. There’s some nice shops, a good pub or two, coastal towns that offer beautiful cheeses, and sweets, there’s a pool table, table-tennis, an outdoor spa, plenty of bush waking tracks to explore and kayaks to take down the river or locally at Mossy Point. There’s bikes available and local sky diving at the Moruya airport/Bengello beach. There’s the odd small art gallery locally and fresh seafood available nearby.

    We would love some help with weeding, creating more eco-friendly bush regeneration, stacking timber, clearing building material, chopping/gathering fire wood, feeding and collecting eggs from the chickens etc.

    Staying here will give you an insight into rural/coastal NSW life, and all the characters and creatures this area brings!

    You’ll learn about Australian wildlife and have access to some of the most pristine and beautiful coastline areas on the east coast.

    We are missing traveling and look forward to meeting/ sharing travel memories with you :-)

    We absolutely love living here and we enjoy to host people and share our passion and knowledge that we’ve gathered in the time we’ve lived here.

    Ideally, we need help with gardening, (weed management to maintain a healthy eco-system for native bush regeneration, weeding on the river bank and maybe a little help around the house ie. window cleaning, cobwebs etc.

    My partner’s passion is with wood work and we often have a few DIY projects happening where having an extra pair of hands would be a great help!

    You have a choice of accomodation.

    We have a bedroom ‘The Dodge’ (gypsy wagon) on the river bank.

    We also have a bed/loft in the shed (see photo with pool table) which also has a toilet, water etc.

    Shower access can be the outdoor shower (weather permitting) or the house bathroom.

    We have a predominately plant based diet so we can cater for vegetarians (but we also love chicken, fish, and cheese). Dinner prepared, continental breakfast and lunch provided.

    There are some great outdoor things to do here on your time off as noted above. You can use the kayaks to paddle the river, go for a bush walk, go for a swim in the ocean, play pool or table tennis in the shed or go for a bike ride.

    Beaches and the local town of Moruya are a 10-15 minute drive. However, there is not much public transport here, so having your own car is preferable of course we can provide some transport assistance where possible :-)

    Vans welcome (especially self contained vans) as we have loads of room on the riverbank and it’s powered. You would enjoy peace and quiet and a tranquil view along the river). (The internet works best at the house).
