A magical property with waterfalls, swimming holes, bushwalks, permaculture gardens, fruit orchids, recording studios and lots of wildlife, close to Mullumbimby town and Byron Bay beaches.
HELP WE NEED
The help exchange is about 25hrs a week. Usually 5 hrs a day, 5 days a week, so there`s 2 full days off each week. Or, if you want more full days off , you can work three 8ish hr days and have the rest of the week for other adventures.
Mostly we need help with cleaning and gardening projects: weeding, planting, mulching, looking after the vegie garden and for those that can handle machines: ride on mowing and whippersnipping.
We are particularly keen to have people with: building, carpentry, plumbing, bricklaying, tiling, electrical, sewing, IT (web design), audio and video skills, as we have many projects on the go.
We also do audio visual installations at events on the weekends and often need help setting up and operating sound systems, lights and video projects.
Accommodation is in your own self-contained lodge with communal kitchen and living areas and various private sleeping options. There are no bunk beds, we have 4 double beds. We have a 2 week minimum stay policy, but prefer people who are up for staying a month or more . Most people don`t want to leave and end up staying a few months.
The kitchen has all you need to cook your own meals.
We supply vegetarian food: various pastas, rice, beans, sauces, fruits, vegetables, cereals, bread, butter, milk, cheese, biscuits, condiments, etc
Depending on what season you visit, there`ll be different fruits and vegies available in the garden.
Some people also buy their own meat and other things that they`re into to add to what we provide, but you can easily live well off what`s in the kitchen and garden.
We can pick you up in Mullumbimby and give u rides to town and beach but if you have your own transport that`s a bonus and will help us choose you.
There is an beautiful trail along a stream, past waterfalls and river with numerous waterholes u can swim in. The big waterfall is great for an exciting hydro massage. There`s loads of wildlife around including: koalas, wallabys, echidnas, platapus, turtles, water dragons, goannas and funky people.
U will have indoor & outdoor fireplaces, fast wifi, a computer with internet access, soundsystem, flat screen TV, projector & screen and hard drive full of music & movies to keep you entertained at night.
We often work at festivals & events doing audio, video & lighting production so you'll get free tickets & invites to great local parties, festivals & events.
