  • Description


    Created by nature loving artists this beautiful 14 acre property is like no other. Using Eco friendly Mongolian Yurts the establishment of an Eco Retreat is the major project already under way. There is an established orchard with a huge variety of mature trees that requires mulching and tending.

    Most of the property is covered in magnificent rainforest and the rear property boundary is next door to world heritage Dorrigo National Park. Everyone who stays is taken to see Dorrigo National Park to see Crystal Showers, the Urunga Beach Boardwalk and the Never Never Creek swimming holes in Gleniffer the Promised Lands.

    Situated 8 minutes drive to Bellingen town famous for music and cultural festivals. 5 minutes away from the picture perfect Promised Lands swimming holes.

    You can walk to the upper Bellinger River from here called the Gordonville Crossing. There are many bushwalking trails around and Dorrigo National park has the skywalk lookout and Crystal Showers Walk.

    Coffs Harbour Airport, Urunga beach and Coffs Botanical gardens are half an hour away. Once a month the Community has a Market Day in the Park at Bellingen. Weekly on Wednesday afternoon the Local growers have locally grown food for sale at the show ground.

    What we do here...

    We have animals...you may help fed and tend them

    We have Mongolian Yurts...you can learn about yurt erection and reconditioning an old yurt. All up we have 8 yurts and currently 7 are up. One needs to be moved to a new site so down then up again on a new platform. There are many aspects to yurt ownership and total immersion is the only way I can describe teaching others.

    The tree house cottage...is almost finished. This is where we hang out. It has a shower, toilet and kitchen. We are nailing decking onto a platform already finished. If you can’t hold a hammer then pick up a paint brush and paint the inside.

    Gardening...ongoing...planting bamboo and tiger grasses. Mulching orchard. Planting native grasses. Removing weeds. Building rock paths with fist size rocks to line edges.

    Cooking...preparing dinners. People can do their own breakfast and lunch. We make pizza from scratch and you will be taught how to do it. We also make bread.

    The shared cottage is rustic and bohemian with a wrap around verandah. It has a composting toilet and outdoor hot shower. Cooking on gas oven and stove. Bread making machine. Sandwich toaster. BBQ. Large fridge and freezer. Large dinner table and stainless steel food prep table. Fireplace with oven suitable to bake vegetables.

    Sleeping in Yurts on double or single beds. Electric lighting and ceiling fans in Yurts. It is an experience in living in a more Eco friendly way where you can slow your mind down and tune into the natural environment.

    Most Mobile phones work here. The internet is available at the tree house cottage and the range is quite good. We do have movie nights on selected days off when we close the house to guests and use it ourselves.
