    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. Wallabies are seen everyday munching on the grass. Many native birds seen each day. I have been here 2.5 years and am in the early stages of re-establishing raised garden beds where organic vegies can be grown that can be taken to my daughter and son’s families each week. We pump water directly from the river. I have 5 free ranging chooks so plenty of lovely fresh eggs always on hand. 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. Local market at Nerang on Sundays and a couple of good organic suppliers there…always an enjoyable visit.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

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

    Why I became a WWOOF Host

    I believe that Turtle Rock has plenty to offer visitors…and I like sharing it with others. I have plenty of ideas and skills, but often just need that second pair of hands to expedite progress. I love having the energy and open mindedness of younger people. Since 1989 I’ve been in the tourism industry and this is just another aspect of an industry I love and enjoy. The built-in reciprocity of WWOOFing is a lovely thing. With the help given by my guests, I’m about 12 months ahead of where I’d hoped to be when I purchased the property. WWOOFers I’ve had since moving here have just been fantastic…they add a beautiful dimension to life here.
