Beautiful, soul-restoring, 2 acre property in a beautiful part of Victoria, Australia, covered by 63 chestnut trees, each approx. 35yo, with lovely rounded canopies.

Trees have been well maintained / pruned, enabling easy walk around under each canopy. The property has a rustic, but well appointed caravan, with elecricity, gas, hot & cold water, phone, internet, cooktop, fridge, microwave, regular sized 'double bed', shower, utensils, blankets, TV & more.

Each year we need one person to scare off cockatoos from our trees 4 days a week, each morning for approx 3hrs, and late afternoon for approx 3hrs. You do this by walking around regularly ,and throwing up sticks to scare them off. Then, they fly to other unprotected chestnut trees in the area.

I, the owner, do the other 3 days. It really is a great alternative to city madness. Get fit, have fun, smile, enjoy a beautiful shifting climate, meet great locals, kookaburras, other friendly wildlife, and be inspired.

We also pay you $35 a day for your bird scaring days. That will enable you to buy food while you stay. You can also stay in the caravan & enjoy the amenities while I do the bird scaring the other 3 days of the week.
