No longer able to accept smokers because of health reasons.
Currently looking for helpers for the farm at Bremer Bay following the fire before Christmas which has basically destroyed 600ha the 800ha of the farm, other than thankfully the house and sheds, so a blank canvas after 25 years of work. Bremer Bay and surrounding area remains a beautiful pristine place to visit with wonderful beaches for swimming, surfing, diving and fishing. The Fitzgerald National Park is a World Heritage listed area with amazing things to see that you will not see else where. The lake is quite full so canoeing is still possible but with most of the bush and pasture burnt the farm feels bare after the distruction of the fire which started from a lightning strike about 15 kms away on the 20th of December. We need to clear the burnt fences and damaged tress away from the area and build some new fences for our goats and alpacas. The farm is an organic farm where we have been growing some of our own food so work is needed in this area to get this happening again. We are hatching some new chickens and quail which is interesting if you haven’t experienced this before.
The Telstra network is available for phone and internet connection as it’s important to be able to stay in contact with the rest of the world but the farm is a quiet place, the back boundary leads to Reef Beach, we are about 35 kms out of Bremer Bay and 150kms to Albany. If you don’t have your own transport we can pick you up from Albany as public transport is very limited in our area.
We have a very functional workshop including a hoist if you need repairs or service to your vehicle.
Please make contact if you have other questions about a stay at Qualinup.
Thank you to the helpers in the last six years that have had a stay, your company has been so enjoyable with many wonderful exchanges, so many wonderful memories as well as the start of some friendships. Enjoy your travels in this amazing country or where ever they take you
