    Farm Work Exchange Opportunity
    Our 200-acre farm, just 10km drive to pristine deserted beaches, or a short 45-minute drive to the vibrant hub of Byron Bay, awaits your adventurous spirit!
    About Us:
    Our farm is a work in progress in a rural setting, surrounded by breathtaking landscapes and diverse ecosystems. Located just a short 45-minute drive from the vibrant hub of Byron Bay, close to beautiful beaches, nature walks, rivers, and charming towns like Lismore and Ballina, it offers the perfect blend of tranquillity and adventure.
    What We Offer:
    In exchange for your 16 hours(2 days) per week help, we provide cozy accommodation in a cute fully furnished one-bedroom cottage. The cottage is still having some finishing touches done, so works may continue during your stay. Food is not provided, supermarket and shops are a 10 minute drive from the farm. Our farm is a private, non-income generating entity, with a significant portion of the land zoned for environmental protection.
    Work Opportunities:
    You’ll be helping on exciting projects such as shed building, dam construction, food forest establishment, biodiversity conservation, animal care (including horses, cows, and dogs), general weeding, farm cleanup and machinery repairs if you are mechanically inclined. Your contributions will directly impact the sustainability and growth of our farm.
    Explore and Enjoy:
    During your spare time(5 days per week), immerse yourself in the beauty of the Australian countryside. Take leisurely bushwalks, cast your line for fishing adventures, catch some waves surfing, or embark on a boating excursion along our local beaches and waterways. We're thrilled to guide you to our area's best natural highlights!
    Your own transport is highly recommended, as there is very limited public transport past the farm.
