The 36 cottages in this former 1950s timber town now provide holiday accommodation. We have just recommenced taking in Help-Xers starting February 2017. Staying here provides a glimpse of the Australian way of life from the 1950's.
The wildlife around the village is abundant and very tame - particularly the kangaroos, emus and parrots who may be fed by hand. There are also possums at night.
We are located in the Karri forest 30 minutes from Bridgetown or Manjimup (both have bus links to Perth) and offer magnificent forest walks and silent starry nights.
An enthusiastic small team operates the business. Accommodation is rustic, in old mill cottages with one common television in the village and limited mobile phone reception. Our accommodation for you may vary from a dormitory/bunkroom, staying in the manager's house or one of our cottages. We'll supply plenty of food to cook your own meals at your leisure, as well as 30 minutes of internet access a day. In return we ask for four hours casual work a day (flexible hours), which is varied but is usually manual/outdoor/cleaning/gardening type work. We also do all our own maintenance and carpentry on site to maintain the timber cottages. The work does not qualify for a second year visa. We accept Helpx inquiries by email only.
