Our property is situated in the beautiful Bellinger Valley, 10 minutes from Bellingen. Bellingen is a small, but vibrant community of environmentalists, conservationists, artists, musicians, and dairy farming, situated 30 minutes south of Coffs Harbour, on the NSW mid-north coast. Coffs Harbour is on the coast, half-way between Sydney and Brisbane. We are 5 minutes from the Bellinger River, 15 minutes drive from beautiful deserted surf beaches and 30 minutes from world heritage rainforests and the Dorrigo Plateau.

We are a gay couple, with a very energetic dog, and our property is frequently visited by local wildlife: wallabies, bandicoots, reptiles and frogs, and many species of native birds. We have a large dam on the property which is home for a few native ducks, and thousands of frogs. Our 3-bedroom house is open and airy, with large, sunny outdoor decks and beautiful views of trees and rolling hills, and it`s peaceful and quiet. We have kayaks for the river, bicycles for exploring the local area and a swimming pool for those warm days and hammocks to laze around when you aren`t working!

Some of the jobs we`d like a hand with include: tree pruning, weeding and tidying up gardens, mulching, creating a brick paved area for a fire pit, as well as some general tidying up jobs around the outside of the house, including a few carpentry jobs. If the weather is wet, there`s always a few housekeeping jobs we can find.

PLEASE NOTE: We are happy for you to have flexible working hours, but we expect the equivalent of about 4 hours work each day, or 8 hours every second day if you`d like to have days off to explore the area. In return we offer your own room and bathroom, great food, and transport to and from Bellingen or Coffs Harbour. We very much prefer people who have good life skills - we're not running a hotel, and we appreciate some help with basic household duties such as washing dishes and cleaning up the kitchen after meals. We expect you to treat our house with respect and to clean up after yourselves. We generally take helpers for a two-week period.

We are a non-smoking household, and we do not have smokers staying with us. We enjoy offering extra support and privileges for those more generous, connecting and thoughtful helpers, such as trips to the rainforest and the beach, and kayaking in the national parks, for those helpers who show us that they are grateful to be sharing our home.

Coffs Harbour is the closest airport and Urunga is the closest railway station and bus terminal and we can pick you up if needed. You can find transport details here: http://www.countrylink.info/planning_your_trip
