    Descripción

    We are a family of 5, 3 kids, 2 adults with 3 dogs, 3 old cats & 10 cows, 2 goats, & lots of chickens. We have a love of the land, animals and a love of the environment, and keen to try this off grid life with zest!

    We are excited for ANY help across these areas, planting rainforest trees, stone work, gardening, help with kids, animals, fencing, carpentry, building, landscaping, plumbing, electrical work, mowing....or just sharing our life with you & gaining some help as we go, even washing up is a huge help to us or keeping house tidy as simple as that sounds it all makes a difference!!

    We have a garden we are trying to expand, we would love to create with our pre loved windows a green house, we would love to finish the stone work on our little cabin, or help with day to days, managing animals, keeping gardens in check, and giving you an adventure off grid, on a beautiful mountain, with a beautiful river to take a dip in, GREAT in Summer!

    In return, we offer good food, fun, basic accomodation (loft in our cabin) or can setup in a comfy mattress in a tent behind cabin or a more private spot on property if you prefer, and YES we have hot water showers & wifi.

    We will be your tour guides as we truely love it up here and are keen to show you around and make your stay not just about helping us, but creating some amazing memories for you too! 45 min to Wingham Train Station, 1.5 hrs to Old Bar Beach or Harrington, (if you need a beach fix) or 3 min to Ellenborough Falls (famous water fall in NSW). If you have a bike, or you don't.. borrow one, get around the area when you have spare time or you just want to escape the farm.

    October is the best month here, warm summer like days, still cool nights for a fire, but the river is still icy, but worth the effort to get in, AND we get fire flies in October (super special)! And if you can fish, we would love you to see if we have any perch in those damns after the floods, so bring on those skills! Dec to March are very warm, and can be rainy months but make for great days in the river. Winter brings change and you enjoy rugging up, more cooking we find, more keeping house, less mowing and mow animal care work and garden management. Icy hills mean fun mornings with kids on slopes with boogie boards!

    We are looking for adventure keen people, ready for off grid living in it's raw, (yes we have hot shower & toilet & internet despite being off grid so not too raw hahahaha), and bus to town! If you want to see more, go to our insta- ask us for the link- to see more photos.

    Looking forward to hearing from you! Jenny & Lucas and our feral and noisy kids and dogs!

    Enjoying being part of a family, helping plant rainforest trees, helping to better what we can provide our camping customers so they have to bring less, and generally enjoying their stay as we do love to cook, and show them around so they have fun while they are here! We have a lot to do, so super appreciative of ALL help!

    Algo más...

    In the summer, swimming LOTS in the river... through to, bush walks, or head into town and go to cafes, or just hang out on the mountain - lie and fall asleep in a hammock between the trees next to the river, Ellenborough Falls walk, rapids, Potaroo Falls, Rowley's rock, blue knob, visit local farms, enjoy the fresh air, the stars, the fire place, the fresh water river, and generally just enjoy the feeling of freedom. But happy to drop them into town once a week, and there is a local cafe and corner shop. And buses that go from here to town. Nature to see up here! The beach is only 1 hr 30 min away as well. OR JUST grab a hammock and setup somewhere on the 90 acres and get away from us and everyone else! :).
