    Description

    NOTE: NT border opens 17 July. We cannot host anyone from interstate who requires quarantine as Pine Creek is not a designated Regional Quarantine zone.
    We are currently doing some landscaping/paving around the kitchen & working in the garden now that the we are in the dry season. Our farm is located 95 km Nth of Katherine/235 km South of Darwin and 7km from township of Pine Creek in a secluded valley that was a former Chinese market garden in the gold rush days. Permanent creek/spring water & tropical fruit trees. Work varies with seasons & includes gardening, jam making, drying mango, mowing, landscaping, building maintenance and domestic duties. We hope to exchange 4 hours work for accommodation, meals and internet use. Well established tropical style living offering a choice of accommodation in s/c donga or tents (dry season). Internet available. Children by arrangement. Good food with some local game & fresh tropical fruit. NSI. Length of stay negotiable.
    We have been hosts on other websites for the last 12 years. During that time we have hosted travellers from all over the globe. It is a wonderful opportunity to share cultures and philosophies.

Good healthy food is a very important element in our household and it is a joy to share good food and good conversation.

  • Hébergement

    Hébergement

    Accommodation is in a self contained donga with own hot shower and toilet also large mozzie dome under the stars in the dry season.
    I usually do most of the cooking as I have to plan meals around what is in the fridge/pantry. Grocery shopping is 90 km away so one can't just pop down to the supermarket. We eat meat however vegetarians can be well catered for.
