    Descrição

    Hi, we're Tracey and Jamie, artist and IT professional respectively, and we live in a small cottage set high on a ridge top overlooking the Tambo River in East Gippsland, about 4 hours east of Melbourne. The property is a large wilderness block fronting onto the river and surrounded by State Forest, and at night the only lights come from the night sky. This is a real bush retreat for visitors seeking an Australian wilderness experience.

    We offer accommodation in either a vintage caravan or a comfortable bedroom inside a shed, which has a wood fire, a luxurious bathroom and is a short walk from the house. We share our meals together and make our guests feel at home in our house.

    We provide great food and campfire cooking - a genuine Australian bush experience - in exchange for 4-5 hours work a day, helping with building, bush regeneration and landscaping. We have been affected by the recent bushfires so there is a lot of regeneration work we need to do, and this work counts towards a second year visa.

    Tracey's art practice often involves local community art projects, and you are welcome to participate in these if you wish.

    To get here, catch the train to Bairnsdale (a 4 hour trip) and we can pick you up from the station, or there is also a local bus from the station to our place.

    Thanks to Jesper for use of his photos.

    Ajuda

    At the moment we are completing some building, landscaping and re-vegetation projects so need people who have experience in building or landscaping, or are willing to undertake physical tasks. Much of the tasks will be outdoors, but not too heavy. We would appreciate if guests have appropriate work clothes, including work shoes.

    Tracey also has art projects which she needs help with occasionally.

    Acomodação

    Accommodation is in a vintage caravan inside our shed. The shed has a fire to keep you warm in the evenings, luxurious bathroom and is a short walk from the house. We always share our meals together and make our guests feel at home in our house. We also like cooking on the campfire and love good food.

    Due to our location we do not have a telephone line or wired internet, but we have good mobile reception and use a satellite for connection to the web.

    Algo mais...

    The property has walking tracks, river frontage, plenty of wildlife, and great views. We are halfway between the high country and the coast, about one hour each way. We have been hosting visitors for many years now, and really enjoy the cultural exchange.

    Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements as we are a long way from any shops and need to arrange ingredients and food supplies in advance. We are omnivorous (eat everything!) We can cater for vegetarians and vegans but would appreciate help in the kitchen if you have a particularly specific diet.

    To get here from Melbourne, catch the early train to Bairnsdale, and get the Omeo bus to our front gate. If that is not possible we can pick you up from Bairnsdale station, which is an hour's drive from our place.
