[Update] 6/05/20 We are full at the moment hosting 6 backpackers due to the Corona lock-down.

Our home is in the Avon Valley approximately 150km east of Perth, with the small towns of Northam and Toodyay app 50km away. Our property is around 80 acres of land. 60 acres of this consists of re-vegetated bush land, two large dams and part of a salt lake. The remaining 20 acres is arable land where we have our home, home gardens, a large veggie patch, some sheds, shade houses and accommodation for visitors.

As members of Land for Wildlife, we hope to further develop and improve the on-site re-vegetation programs to ensure a continued safe haven for the native flora and fauna of the region. We would like to give people the opportunity to come and enjoy our lifestyle and the peace and quiet of the Australian bush.

We would like helpers to assist us with tasks such as removing death wood, old fences and invasive flora, replanting natives, work in the garden, improving on site accommodation units and other tasks that need doing.

Your accommodation will consist of a converted railway carriage and a converted container "Donga". The accommodation is rudimentary but functional. The railway carriage has a kitchen, a living area with a heater and a bedroom. The Donga has a bathroom with toilet and 2 separate bedrooms. Renovating the railway carriage can be your project during your stay. The facility is self-catering and grocery stores in Goomalling (app 25km), Northam (50km) and Toodyay (50km) can be accessed for supplies.
