Kangaroo Island has been my home since 1973 and now includes Tina and daughter Anne. This farm, bought in July 2010 is my 3rd farming venture.Originally a productive mixed farm, it then became a pine plantation for 30yrs during which time the infrastructure fell into disrepair. It is our aim to rehabilitate the land for animal grazing and to develope a small tourist accomodation business.
In exchange for meals and in house accom, helpers would be required to work 4hours per day average, in duties (not limited to) tree planting, gardening, fence and rubbish removal,painting, building and renovation.Helpers need to be able to cope with physical but not back breaking activities .
In your time ,this place offers you the opportunity to explore some of the best, rural inland K.Is has to offer. Many winter streams feed into the permenant Cygnet River where maron and small fish live.`Roos,wallaby,echidina,goanna, koala, kookaburra, curlew, glossy black cockatoo to pardalote and many others live, feed and frequent here.
We have sheep, a dog ,a cat and 2.5 horses, a productive vegie garden and are establishing a fruit and nut orchard.The 40hectares of remaining standing pine forest adds yet another walking experience. Great horse riding country too.
Our view of HelpX is not only an exchange of work for food and accommodation but also a social and cultural experience.
