Hello there,

We are two families staying on 65 acres, two hours east of Melbourne. We're between Warragul and Leongatha. Can pickup from Leongatha bus. We're spending the year un-schooling our 5 children between 5 and 11, and tending this beautiful piece of land. We have 4 horses and 2 dogs and are planting a lot of trees. We are into simple living, permaculture, rewilding and eco-psychology, and lots of other things.

There is a lovely creek that runs the length of the property, and a beautiful dig dam/lake to swim in. Everything is rustic so you need to be robust. We are easy going city folk spending a year in the bush.

You'd be helping us with weeding, track making and maintenance, planting, cooking, teaching our kids, building etc. Whatever comes up that your happy to do. We like it if you eat with us, always plenty of yummy food on hand. We ask for 4-hours work a day. If you're here for a week, Sunday we chill even more than the other days and you rest too. :-)

Plenty of wild life around to be seen - wombats, wallabies, possums, platypus and a wide variety of beautiful Australian birds.

In terms of accommodation we can offer you bell tents (soul pad), with comfy mattresses. We do not live in a house and we have minimal hot water. We have access to a large shed that has kitchen facilities and minimal bathroom facilities. We use a composting toilet which is outside. This offers a rustic experience.
