  • Description


    Hi we are Anna & Olof

    We live in the beautiful Terania Creek Valley surrounded by subtropical rainforest on a 15 acre permaculture property. which we are currently in the process of developing.

    6 years ago we were also workawayers and woofers. We over-landed from Spain all the way to Australia without taking a single flight. We visited amazing farms, homestays and permaculture projects across the world. We loved the experience and are now excited to host workawayers our selves.

    Space for parking camper vans

    Campervans are welcome, the only thing is our driveway to the main house is quite steep (gravel road) and we might need to asses if your campervan could make it up the drive, 4x4/AWD drive vehicles won't have a problem. Otherwise there is a large open paddock at the bottom of the drive where you can set up your campervan.
