    We are a couple, previous professions, Ian was an Art Director for advertising and I (Stella) was a film editor and producer for film and tv. We made the tree change 7 years ago we are on a island a beautiful property on a hill overlooking the Manning River and run our own garlic farm. We sell our garlic at farmers markets and some online sales. We both love being in nature and life on the land, and we try to be as self sufficient as possible, growing as much food as we can, we love good dinners, music and movies. We have two beautiful dogs, a cat. There are two beaches here on the Island and 3 local beaches close by, the closest town is 30mins away, and 20 mins Old Bar a surfing village, nearest shops and beach village.

    Mostly our work is to do with the farm, maintaining the property, grass cutting, brush cutting, weeding, gardening, planting, mulching and harvesting the garlic, vegetables and fruit from the garden. We like to share the cooking and cleaning just as you would normally with a family.

    Your accommodation is a beautiful separate cottage close by to the main house, it is fully equipped with a kitchen, bathroom and living space, overlooking the river. The cottage has a piano, pool table, darts, chess set, many other games, and books. We also have 3 retro caravans which we are restoring and welcome guests with an artist flare as we plan to paint interesting themes and make them more accommodation. You will be sharing the cottage with other helpers.

    Having a car helps as we do not have a lot of public transport, we are happy to help assist those that don't have cars but it is preferable due to the distance between villages. There are many festivals held in the Manning at different times of the year, the main activities are fishing, surfing, bush walking, and a live music venue close by. Taree our closest town is quite big and 30 mins away and we make many regular trips for shopping etc. Old Bar our closest town is a beach village and has shops, cafes and a live music venue. We're 2 hours north of Newcastle and an hour south of Port Macquarie. Mostly, the activities revolve around water sports, surfing, fishing, kayaking etc..
