Accommodation Type: Separate Building
We are nestled on 100 acres of stunning bushland on Wonnarua Country, in the midst of the Watagan forest of the Lower Hunter Valley, 1.5 hours from Sydney and Newcastle. There is a wide variety of wildlife including lyrebirds, wallabies, echidnas and wombats, blue and fairy wrens, kookaburras, satin bower birds, black and sulphur crested cockatoos. We are growing tomatoes, pumpkins, zucchinis, mustard greens, rocket, kale, broccoli, carrots, beans (all types), herbs (all types), citrus, and many other fruits and vegetables. We are in the process of developing a master plan for our property, having moved here in August 2018. We are increasing the number of fruit and nut trees, are continually expanding the vegetable gardens, and enjoy fresh eggs with our 6 chickens and 2 roosters. The property is situated on the crest of a hill, with a beautiful area for camping and meandering in the valley by a natural brook, and another area at the top for workshops and retreats. Keith has a background in Ag Science and biotech start-ups (after a first career as a university professor); Brynnie has been growing not-for-profit organisations in the sustainability, health, maintaining Indigenous culture and social justice space (after a first career in international corporate law) and has studied Zen Shiatsu. Keith has lived in Germany and Brynnie is fluent in Spanish, Portuguese (having lived in Brazil) and gets by in French. Our children are in their mid-20s, having studied art history, philosophy and entrepreneurship, and environmental science, ecology and Spanish. We also have older children (via Keith) and seven grandchildren. We moved to this property in 2018 after having lived in Sydney for more than 25 years. 'Kawalang' means abundance in Wonnarua language. There is more about the property on our website.

City/Town: Tamworth
Farming Methods: Organic
Accommodation Type: In Our Home
Carroll Gap is in a rural locality between the North West NSW towns of Gunnedah and Tamworth. We have a small farm running a few head of cattle and horses, one bee hive, with an extensive vegetable garden, fruit trees, chickens, ducks, dogs and a cat. It's a dry inland environment and not very fertile soil on the hills. Olives do quite well. I sometimes milk a jersey cow or two, make a variety of cheeses with the milk, and make sourdough bread daily. I am keen on cooking from scratch, with healthy, fresh, local, seasonal ingredients, using our own produce as much as possible. I also enjoy traditional country-style crafts. My husband Bob does metal engineering work from a (very messy) shed at home. I have a small part-time business running occasional cookery classes from home and cater for booked functions and meals  (breakfasts, lunches, and dinners) with small groups of people dining here on weekends.  So we have quite a few visitors coming and going at times. Mid- week I focus on garden and farm work. Our house is quite old, (by Australian standards), built in 1880 as Carroll Gap Public School and Post Office, but is set up now for serious cookery with a variety of stoves of varying vintages, and fireplaces for cooking and keeping us warm in our frosty winters. Summertime can be extremely hot here, over 40 degrees at times, but we do have some air conditioning.

Farming Methods: Organic
Accommodation Type: In Our Home
We have a beautiful 40 acre horse agistment property, veggie garden & fruit trees and approx. 5 acres bush. 3 min drive to surf beach, bay beach & Inverloch town or 10 min drive to Wonthaggi, a larger town. Push bikes available. We are very interested in living a sustainable lifestyle and hope that our WWOOFers are also interested in living sustainably and learning, and sharing knowledge of this. There are almost always wallabies at our farm and if you are lucky you may see kangaroos, echidnas, wombats & occasional koalas. Volunteering may include harvesting, food collection, composting, mulching, hay carting, weeding, fencing, planting, food preservation.  Sometimes there is some work caring for horses: often all the work is in the garden and paddock maintenance, as the horses are mainly looked after by their owners. Accommodation for up to 3 in our home, although we usually prefer 2. Shared meals, cook together. We eat a healthy, sustainable diet.  Bron is vegan and while Ray eats most foods, many meals are vegan or vegetarian.  Vegetarians & vegans catered for.  No children, no smoking, all stays negotiable on application. Please let us know your available dates when you apply and the length of time that you would like to WWOOF here. (1 to 2 weeks preferred).

We joined WWOOF because we want to immerse ourselves in the culture and way of life of the local people. Indeed, we believe that discovering a country necessarily involves discussions with local people. We want to make ourselves useful in addition to being able to travel. Joining WWOOF will also allow us to discover more hidden aspects of Australia, live in community and make the best of our trip.

As I said, I have just finished high school. I wanted to take a break from my studies. Therefore I was searching and one day I found this possibility of working in a farm in exchange for food and accomodation. I had the feeling that was what I had to do. So here I am :). I love travelling and I have always wanted to go to Australia, it is a dream. Discovering new people, a new culture, learning new things, that is why I want to become a wwoofer ! I am sure that this experience can also be very rewarding in terms of social relations, responsibility and independence. It is also a good way to improve my English ! I do not have any experience in wwoofing but I am here to learn. Leaving far away from my country is also a way to prove to myself that I can do things alone and that I am not lost without my family or my friends.

I want to see the world, and WWOOF seems like a good way to see a country without having to pay hotel fees. I also want to learn how to grow food. I'm hoping to find a place in Australia that can host me for 1-3 months.

I want to experience more of Australia and have visited there many times both for work and play. I enjoy meeting new people and being part of a like minded community. I have been a WWOOF host and would like to experience the other side of it.

About a year ago, I thought I need change in my life it got to monotonous. Then I heard about WWOOFing the first time. A friend of mine was in Australia for a year and told me about the adventures he had. He met so many different people and had so many stories to tell. Then I looked up in the internet what I found there was the change I needed in my life. The fact that you work with the local people dive into their daily life was fascinating to me. As I grew up in the country side I know how to work in the garden, take care of livestock and fix things around the house. I can drive a tractor, a forklift and cars with sticks. Another motivation was to improve my English skills as I get in touch with a lot of native speakers I will surely improve my English.

I am joining WWOOF as it is an opportunity to find farm jobs. I would like to gather more experience in different methods of farming. Also it would be nice to get in touch with local farmers to learn more about the given situation.

Of course I’m WWOOFing to travel and see the world but what I’m really looking for out of this experience is to connect to nature and get some headspace, to learn new skills, to get my hands dirty, and to come away with more knowledge about the earth and it’s creatures, including myself. I’m really excited about learning all about organic farming in every way it’s practiced. I have very far off goals of someday having my own little spot of land, even if that’s just a big vegetable garden in a backyard, and am really passionate about sustainable practices and giving back to earth as well as only taking what is absolutely needed.

I was born in a big city in China where there are not so many wild animals and plants. But I do love the magnificent nature and animals depicted on TV and in books. I live in this wide world, and all I see are cats and dogs in pet stores. It doesn't feel real to me. I think I should take a break from my busy city life and experience the real world. Because of COVID-19, I lost a lot of opportunities to see the world, but I really hope I can communicate with different people, learn about different places and feel different cultures in my college life. Nature is always relaxing. It will free me from monotonous learning, stop meaningless working, and turn to thinking about my real interest in life, to find my real passion. I hope my time with you can make you happy as well.

I spent my entire childhood in a village living on nearby farms and caring for animals. The farm is an environment that I have always being familiar with and liked. Also, what characterizes me is my desire to exchange and learn from new people. It is for all these reasons that WWOOFing inspires me so much. During my WWOOFing experience, which must take place between early January 2023 and mid-February 2023 for ten days or more, I want to share the daily life of a Host located around Alice Springs.
