We live on a 5 acre property about 10kms from cbd. I am an artist/ sculptor and love being involved in creative projects and have spent 15 years making my garden an outback wonderland. Our house holds a beautiful view of the east MacDonnell ranges in a very quiet area. Secluded walks are very special and unique where you might see kangaroos, dingos or goannas and many birds such as red winged black cockatoos and the beautiful splendid blue fairy wren.
We have chooks, pea cocks, a turtle, a duck and a dog. We are also home to many native birds who spend much of the day gracing us with their varied songs. You can discover some of Alices' beautiful secret valleys while walking the dog. We are close enough to walk to the famous Emily gap or climb the MacDonnell range and take in an endless view of the central australian desert.

We Can provide meals fresh from garden when in season. Helpers must like outdoor style of living as accommodation is a caravan with outdoor undercover hang out area and a composting toilet. Guests will cook for themselves in their own kitchen or can share a meal with us. There is a plunge water tank pool to keep you cool and bikes you can borrow to either ride to town or take off on a cross country adventure.

Work at the moment is helping with general garden maintenance and housework. People with skills are always welcome. You can do 4.5 hours work per person a day for food and accommodation or 3 hours for just accomodation.

Please note that weather from October till April can be high 30 s to low 40 s so if you want to stay between these months you must be able to withstand the heat.

Stays range from few days to weeks depending on availability and work needed done. You are more likely to secure a stay if you email me and give me a call.
