Hi, this is a place you will enjoy as it has the unique wonder and beauty of the hills and countryside, yet is accessible to the city and tourist spots. The house is a crafted stone and timber lodge in an idyllic 8 acre semirural setting, part bushland with intercepting creek,granite rock outcrops and native wildlife.

Help is required for bush regeneration,basic carpentry and construction,weed control, wood gathering, property maintenance and upkeep of permaculture garden. Motorcycle and van mechanics also appreciated.

Free accomodation provided for averaged 2-3 hrs work daily with negotiable vegetarian/pectarian meal or cooking arrangements. Hours can be organised as you wish to make free days available. TV and internet available free, but mobile phone reception can be limited. Table tennis, darts and pool table are also available in the house, and a small library of books. I live here with two small dogs but there are no other domestic animals, except beehives to be established.

The property borders the walking/cycling trail to Hovea Falls and John Forrest National Park. Situated in the scenic hills on the outskirts of Perth, it is only 30-40minutes from the city, and 5 minutes from the nearest town complete with all facilities. Picturesque Lake Leschenaultia is a short drive away, and there is plenty to enjoy in the area including horse-riding, cycling, trekking, outdoor films, live music & arts.
