    Short Property Description

    Turtle Rock is a 2.5 acre property with 200 m Coomera River frontage.
    Platypus and turtles are in the river …and it’s a great place for a cooling swim.
    Have been here 18 months and am in the early stages of re-establishing raised garden beds where organic veges can be grown that can be taken to daughter and son’s families each week.
    We pump water directly from the river.
    It’s an architecturally designed 4 bedroom house with polished wooden floors throughout.
    Local town is Canungra which is 20m drive.
    Gold Coast beaches are about 45 min away.
    Have 5 free ranging chooks so plenty of lovely fresh eggs always on hand.
    Local market at Nerang on Sundays and a couple of good organic suppliers there…always an enjoyable visit.
    Wallabies are seen everyday munching on the grass. Many native birds seen each day.

    Full Property Description

    Many lovely walks around the area. Gold Coast beaches about 45 min away..Local golf course 15 away. Very happy to show visitors the areas walks, parks and attractions. Whilst the platypus are only seen occasionally there are turtles seen all the time…plenty of birds and wallabies.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    Am in the very early stages of leaning about Permaculture Farming methods. Any help and ideas greatly appreciated.

    Special Conditions

    No Special Conditions…just like to work casually with happy people willing to help and learn.
    The property is in the Hinterland of the Gold Coast.
    I am happy to pick up WWOOFERS from the Gold Coast…it’s about a 45 min drive for me….and at the end of the stay take them back.

    After bush fires last September and heavy rain in Dec/Jan my gardens are in need of a huge injection of love and energy.

    I have all the equipment and plans, just need more helpful hands.

    WWOOFERS I’ve had since moving here have just been fantastic…they add a beautiful dimension to life here.
