  • Description


    We are always in need of help gardening and various other outdoor chores on our 5 acre property in the bush. We work pretty long hours, so visitors have time to themselves to explore our beautiful environment with waterfalls on the local creek just 30 minutes walk away. Over 50 species of bird life have been spotted on our property. Resident wallabies, bandicoots and possums (if you're up at night). A bike can be provided however there is a bus at the door (1 morning and 1 afternoon service). Walking distance from the local village and railway station to Sydney or Blue Mountains stops. You are welcome to spend some time with Peter at his environmental education centre and help out with the worm farms, bush tucker, native plants and vegetable gardens. Huge selection of books of all genres available to read on the deck or in our private garden setting. All water is rainwater, solar powered home, wifi/cable ethernet, TV and a couple of streaming options available.
