  • Descrição


    Hi there from Emma and Robbie,

    We live on the beautiful North West coast of Tasmania with two maremma dogs (big), two curious cats and eight roaming chickens on a lovely acre of land. At the moment we have one of our five month old puppies staying with us while we find a new home for him. Our dream is to transform our block into a sanctuary of lush vegetable, herb and fruit gardens with spaces for accommodation, retreat and creative arts. So far it is a bush block and we are just beginning...

    At the moment we have a few small construction jobs on - getting ready for winter including adding a couple of windows and doors, digging out the bank for access and drainage and lining a room for Bowen Therapy... We are coming into winter now with shorter days, crisp cold air and fires inside at night.

    Here in the land of rainbows we have three sheds - we currently live in Shed 1 in a temporary camping type fashion with electricity, combustion heaters, limited hot and cold running water, an outside shower and composting toilet arrangement. There are two other 'bedrooms' in Shed 1 - one with a double bed, one single. The bedroom in Shed 2 is transforming into a therapy room for Bowen. We are working to create more amenable living areas. In the future we plan to build an ecofriendly permanent home on the knoll with views down to Table Cape. We also have a fold out caravan set up for visitors as per photos :)

    We use organic gardening methods and hope to be certified one day. We are also very interested in permaculture and using many of these techniques and designs - plenty to learn here also though!

    There is plenty of work to do including building, watering, pet care, mowing, brush cutting, planting, weeding, clearing, landscaping, woodchopping, setting up a small solar system, etc. We are experimenting with a giant hugelkulture which also needs input. Inside there is cooking, cleaning, sewing, animal care and other work such as making products such as jam and preserves, processing seeds and other creative endeavours. Emma has recently received a gift of sourdough starter and is learning to cohabitate!
    Robbie is working part time and Emma has just completed her study as a Bowen therapist - always looking for volunteers to practice on!

    Given our unusual accommodation situation it is good for us to have helpers with flexibility, initiative and independence.

    We have friends with racehorses that need regular riding and if you are experienced there is a possibility to do some of this.

    Playing music and singing are something we would like to do more of - as well as taking part in the local music scene. Robbie plays guitar and Emma ukulele :) We also like playing games like board games and table tennis.

    We live in a wonderful place and love to share this with visitors - waterfalls, amazing beaches, unique land formations, beautiful towns, superb crafts and woodwork, mouth watering produce (and chocolate!), world famous hiking opportunities and so much more. When we have time it is our pleasure to show you around. At other times we can point you in the right direction and provide some resources to help.

    We are happy to pick you up and drop you off from/to the nearest bus station/airport by arrangement.

    There are various accommodation options available depending on what stage different projects are up to!
    - The 'Glampervan' which has a double/queen bed, a sitting area and limited kitchen facilities
    - A single bed inside Shed 1 which has visual privacy but not much audio privacy - and a double bed much the same.

    Our home is safe and respectful. We care about your safety and space and expect the same in return.

    Our journey with workaway so far has been lovely and we are keen to continue!

    Both of us had a small amount of exposure to other languages at school and Robbie has had more recent experiences with German. We are keen to learn and happy to encourage others wanting to improve their English.

    We are looking forward to meeting you, furthering some of our projects and sharing recipes and other life experiences :)
