    Hi there, We are mother and daughter, Liz and Emily. Our family home is a beautiful old farmhouse in Gleniffer on the mid north coast of New South Wales. It is about 20 minutes from a super interesting, culturally diverse town called Bellingen. We called the house 'Freida' after the midwife who lived here in the late 1800s. Freida is a lovely big spacious home, we offer it to other people to rent for holidays and it's also a great place for our family and friends to come together. We have had the property for about almost two years. Our accommodation is below the main house, an independent three bedroom living space.

    We have a river walking distance from the house and lots of very special water holes on the Never Never Creek, a short drive away. We are working on some beautification projects on the property, clearing some of the growth along the boundaries and orchards and doing painting in the house.

    We love travelling and both speak some Spanish and have travelled in South America, other members of the family have lived in Peru. They now live nearby on the coast. We have become hosts with Workaway because we would really like to welcome international travellers to our home and get to know new people and share this piece of paradise with them. Please feel free to say hi.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    Coming to stay here is very interesting for travellers from other countries. Bellingen has a very diverse community, lots of people that are devoted to the environment. It was originally a cedar getting area in the pioneering days and is a rich subtrpoical rainforest. Many people have come here for an alternative lifestyle, choosing to live in the country rather than the city. The house itself is historic and typical of the pioneering era in Australia and country farmhouses . It has wrap around verandahs and French doors. I think a stay here would offer a very unique Aussie experience and you'd meet some great people. I have had some experience teaching young children English and I'm happy to help people practice their English. I'd also like to practice Spanish and start to learn some other languages. This is a great place for a cultural exchange :-)
