  • Descrição


    We're a family of 4 (our son has just left the nest to spread his wings & explore) who purchased a bush block to convert into our own little organic haven homestead. This has been a dream of our for many years. We started our dream travelling around Australia in a caravan doing work exchange's and now we would love to give back but also have the benefit of some extra hands to help us out on our 25 acres of bushland.

    We are in the RUGGED and ROUGH early EARLY stages! We are currently still living in our caravan, so workaway-ers will need to have their own accommodations but we also have some accommodation available.

    We live off grid but we do have solar and internet connection available.
    We have running water.
    We have an outdoor shower.
    We have a bush kitchen.
    We have 25 acres of mostly untouched, never before inhabited bush land, beautiful to wander around and breathtaking sunsets.
    We're working towards a food forest and do have produce available to pick from the garden, although the weather of late has caused a bit of a slump in production.
    We have around 20 happy chooks & roosters, so eggs nearly daily.
    We can offer simple meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner or you are welcome to make your own.

    What we are looking for is help in the gardens, simple building tasks, clearing areas fallen trees/scrub trees/Lantana, fence building & whatever other things may crop up for 5 days a week, up to 4 hours per day - days and hours can be negotiated.

    We loved our time as workaway volunteers and are excited to give back as well as to meet new people and build community.

    Please note; absolutely no drugs, ideally no alcohol but this can be discussed.

  • Acomodação


    Currently, we are living in our caravan whilst we build. Workawayers will ideally have their own caravan/van/camper/ tent etc.
    However, we DO have a large 10 person tent that is erected under our undercover outdoor area - this can be moved to anywhere else on the property that the volunteer may prefer. We also have a swag. We have camp beds, foam mattresses and sleeping bags/bedding. We are also currently building a small 3x3 cabin for workawayers that should be ready in about 5 weeks.
    So although we don't have traditional dwellings we do have unique options available.

    We can offer simple meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner or you are welcome to make your own.

    We are 1 hour away from Bundaberg and about 90 minutes from some beautiful beaches. The nearest town Gin Gin is about 25 minutes away. Harvey Bay is a couple of hours drive with all the delights of the Fraser coast to explore. We are surrounded by lots of lovely little towns who host a different market weekly. There's many wonderful nature reserves and bushwalks available in surrounding areas also. We are fairly new to the area (12 months) so we are also still learning what is around.
