We are looking for a helper from 8 July 2018. In between doing beautiful hikes, surfing our uncrowded waves or wandering along empty beaches, we would love your help assisting Andy with building work such as fitting windows and plastering.

We are a family who love the outdoors and our alternative lifestyle here on Great Barrier Island. We live in a house that is completely off the grid and runs 100% on solar power. Our water comes directly from the sky or from the stream, we have a big vegetable patch and most of our meat and fish comes from the island's land and sea.

Andy is a builder and Deborah runs a stargazing tour company. In our spare time we fish, dive, surf, garden or play on the beach with our son.

We moved into this property in March 2017 after spending a year renovating (thanks to all the help from wonderful helpXers). But there's always help required, so get in touch!

In exchange for 4 hours work a day (or 28 hours a week), plus general helping out (like d... more inside

Great Barrier Island is a remote, stunningly beautiful Island about 100 km's East of Auckland. Excellent tramping, beaches, surfing, fishing and kayaking

We (husband and wife) live in a large architecturally designed house on 4 hectares of land overlooking Tryphena Harbour
We have a large garden - both ornamental and vegetables from which we eat. While not totally organic we try to use organic techniques to grow our food
We have a small boat and always need encouragement to take time off and go fishing.
We always have masses of projects going on, as we attempt to be as self sufficient as possible - without losing out on the luxuries of life. Our projects projects include gardening, building, websites and making papercrete building blocks etc etc
Great Barrier Island has no reticulated power or water. So we have 8 solar panels, which provide most of our power. Our water is from a spring (imagine water that has been filtered for thousands of years) or rainwater.
Our projects... more inside

Our Community was born in 1975 when a group of young friends including my father and uncle got together and bought this land to start a community of like minded people, in that first period they built the communal house we call the A-frame, established big gardens, planted fruit trees and had dreams of more communal space such as yoga studios and library but as the people had different ideas and focus in there lives they mostly left the Island.

My partner and I are now living on the land, with renewed energy to revive the community, and we invite you to be a part of that.

The things we are working on at the moment are establishing organic permaculture gardens, track work, mud brick composting toilet and preparing for an off grid eco build next summer, milling timber, making mudbricks and site works. We are requesting people with hands on experience for these jobs, minimum 2 week stay.

At this time we don't have much income so unfortunately we cant supply your food, althoug... more inside

Overlooks Medlands surf Beach.
Great beach for walking, fishing, thinking, swimming and surfing.
We supply the food and you cook for yourselves.
If you have any special food requirements you would have to bring them with you.
Would help if you could work independently and entertain yourself. We have lots of gardening to do.
We are looking for a couple of mature guys or a couple that don't mind hard work and have an understanding and love of gardening and we would also need some cleaning help. Am also interested in people with painting experience.
You would do 5 hours a day and weekends off.
At the moment we are looking for someone who can do weedeating, strimming snd scrubcutting. We have a bank which needs a lot of tidying up.

Help us tidy up our bach and her garden whilst staying in paradise. Trade accomodation for garden work and painting and spend some time enjoying this incredible island!
The work is physical as we are clearing out the garden and under the house.
If you have building skills, we are also working on some projects inside the bach.
Are you interested? Let us know and we can chat some more about our plans :)

I am a potter, my studio has gas and wood fired kilns and a small gallery out the front.
We like hosting independent, practical, creative types who immerse into the lifestyle on the Barrier.
The type of work depends on what projects are going on at the time.... gardening, potting, building, cleaning, firewood etc I like to tap into peoples strengths and interests to determine what sort of thing suits them best.

Volunteering and Internships!

We have a couple of vacancies for a volunteer starting around the 26th March 2018:(4 week minimum Stay)


We run a small scale intensive market garden, nursery and orchard on Great Barrier Island, operating according to organic/biological principles.

We grow a very wide range of high quality produce including fruit, vegetables and herbs. 95% of our produce stays here. Truly local food. Our small but busy nursery grows a wide range of seedlings for local gardeners.

Our produce is available at a weekly Saturday market at Stonewall Village in Tryphena, and via a fruit/vege box service for locals and visitors almost year round. We also supply local cafes and restaurants.


There is no mains power out here so we rely on solar panels, batteries and a generator. We have no TV but we do have WiFi Internet, and lots of board games. Volunteers need to be self sufficient and able to entertain themselves, preferably in the great outdoors or read... more inside

WE have a small lifestyle block close to the beach at Tryphena on Great Barrier Island, with beautiful gardens. Need some help to keep them beautiful as we are both live busy lives and they are missing us. Lots of chooks and a large vege garden. There's a cottage near the house needing some painting too. Our house is 4 bedroom so plenty of room. Half day work for food and board.
