  • Description


    We are married and have lived at this address for 23 years and have made it a beautiful resort style property. We started our Hydroponic Farm 3 years ago. We have three older children, 2 live out of home and our Son is home from work every two weeks.

    Workaway was brought to us by our eldest daughter and her husband who used the website and loved the cultural experiences while travelling in Asia.

    We share the farm with two Geese, Adam and Steve; two dogs, Rascal and Digger, King Parrots, Kangaroos, a Pig, Chickens and Cows. Our children nickname it the funny farm.

    We hope to offer a true Australian experience, we are happy to teach everything we know about hydroponic farming and the looking after the farm animals I work part time in Hervey Bay and my Husband is on the farm everyday.
