  • Description


    We are a happy family of four with two boys aged 8 and 6 months, living, working and creating in our little patch of paradise in Northern NSW. We have 5 acres as part of a multiple occupancy community, that makes up a total of over 300 acres in subtropical rainforest. There's an incredible abundance of wildlife which we share the land with and together we are working to create a sustainable lifestyle for ourselves. We live in an off grid earthern house that is slowly being restored with a subtropical fruit orchard and vegetable garden. We are also beekeepers, biochar makers and passionate about fermented foods. We try to eat from our gardens and take pride in looking after ourselves and our guests nutritional wise.

    Lillifield is in the beautiful region of the Mount Warning Caldera (an ancient volcano), we are surrounded by lots of national parks, lush farming valleys, alternative off grid communites, beautiful waterholes for swimming, 20mins from the quirky, colourful and hippy town of Nimbin. In our weekends we often frequent the local farmers markets and the huge unique artisan markets of the region. Experience the wide variety of local musicians who play sunday sessions at our favourite cafes. We also enjoy fishing, kayaking and camping at our magnificent beaches and rivers along the northern coast and we would be happy to show you around if time permits. This is an area with no public transport but we are always happy to negotiate travel if there is something you want to experience!
