I have had an interest in WWOOF for many years now and find it to be a brilliant way to explore and be submersed in another culture. I am joining to broaden my experiences traveling, create memories, and to be able to learn as much as possible about gardening by sustainable and organic methods. I think WWOOFing is also a great way to potentially make great lasting friendships.

Hi and thank you for reading our profile.  Our beautiful cattle farm is set in the picturesque Eurobodalla Shire. We raise Angus/Friesian cows, our herd usually runs at about 35 cows, heifers and steers.  We have one lovely Limousine bull who loves our girls and gives us beautiful calves usually in July/August if we get the timing right!  We use a strip feeding method allowing the cows to graze in a given area for a day or two before moving them into the next "strip".  This is done using electric tape and secure insulated poles for the tape to pass through once knocked into the ground.  Not an arduous task at all and all part of stopping the paddocks from being trampled.  We routinely inject our herd for intestinal worms etc. to keep them comfortable and prevent disease; we also drench them topically for lice.  We have a stock yard, pens, gates and a cattle crush to enable safe handling when performing these tasks. We have approximately 30 free range chooks and a rooster which we feed twice daily with top shelf grain and left over vegetable and fruit scraps.  Eggs are collected daily of course from their nesting boxes in their chicken coop and sold to local friends.  The chooks have a very large area in which to peck and scratch, including a 3 tier orchard of fruit and citrus. We grow as many vegetables as we can in our netted 3 tier vegetable garden using cow, chicken and horse manure for fertiliser.  We have a small compost heap but are in the process of purchasing materials to build a 3 bay compost area, sufficient for the tractor to turn the compost regularly.  We have many tanks for rain water that is utilised on the gardens and for washing and showering.  We also have a bore which retrieves mineral water from the aquifer; this is used to pump water into the cattle troughs and don't they love it.  We have a very large solar array on two roofs from which we draw our electricity although we do not rely solely on this for our energy needs - so there is always electricity even if the sun isn't shining. Our property is bordered on one side by the Tuross River and yes we have a swimming hole and sandy beach to enjoy. Our two beautiful quarter horses Kingsley and Jet are free to roam in their own paddock, complete with water trough, stables (under construction as we speak).  They are ridden by both Rob and I and are frequent visitors at the gate, begging a few pieces of liquorice, a carrot and apple. I am a passionate gardener and have the daily walk around all the garden beds with either a cup of tea or glass of wine in hand to inspect for bugs, weeds etc.  depending on the time of day.

With my wife, we want to make our children discover true nature, outside of cities, and a living close to nature, where food is cultivated and produced. We think this would be a tremendous learning for them, and for us. We are looking to stay in a wwoof for a few weeks close to Brisbane. We are expecting to work and take care of our children. We would of course need a flexible and kids friendly environment but we are really willing to bring some help to the hosting family.

I joined WWOOF for the chance to expand my experience in agriculture. My hope is to gain knowledge of different types of agriculture and farm work to take with me before I start my own farm here in Canada. I have a strong desire to learn and I find the hard would very rewarding. I look forward to meeting new and exciting people as I travel around the country.

  • I joined WWOOF through American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS) and I am interested in learning about life on Australian organic and permaculture farms and learning about growing and producing organically. I am hard working and willing to learn.

We moved in to this 100 acre property, situated between Pemberton and Northcliffe in the South West of Western Australia, at the end of last year. It is surrounded by stunning karri forrest and on the crossing of the Bibbulmun walking trail and the Munda Biddi cycling trail. I fell in love with this area whilst mountain biking the Munda Biddi and consider it the most beautiful forest area in WA, so couldn't resist the opportunity to come and live here when this property came on the market. We come from Europe, David from the UK and Annie from Belgium and we have traveled extensively and done a lot of trekking in the Himalayas,  New Zealand, France and Spain. But this country and forest is what we totally fell in love with. There are already very productive netted orchards and also many ponds and a lake for aquaculture. We have introduced bees and there are plenty of marron, the largest freshwater crayfish in the world and pretty tasty. We also have 21 cattle, 6 sheep, 8 chickens, and a couple of worm farms. Plenty of water is also a bonus in this country. We've got the vegie garden started and have plenty of zucchini, tomatoes, beans, chard and cucumber and corn nearly there! Projects include: Constructing and maintaining permaculture gardens and orchards, picking berries and fruit. Planting native flowering plants to introduce bees, propagating and seeding vegetables. Powerful new mulcher has arrived and we will be doing plenty of compost making as well as mulching the gardens and laying new gardens around the cottages. Marron and fish ponds need netting fixed and we want to look at further possibilities for aquaculture. Chickens need to get food sources established, so they have more opportunities to browse. vermiculture - we love worm juice for our gardens. Woodworking shed is getting organised and with a good supply of machinery, upgrading the cottages is next : making steps, verandahs and then an outdoor kitchen/entertaining area, etc. Looking after guests in several cottages on the property and chopping firewood to build up the winter supply is also ongoing. In the kitchen, we love our fermenting: tasty kombucha with the berries that we have picked and frozen or collecting fresh from the orchard; kefir to use with our cereal in the morning. We bake our own buns and make bread with the bread machine.

I am currently staying on an off grid property in Yessabah, NSW and wanting to travel further up while learning lots and meeting likeminded people along the way! My intention is to get as close as I can to the Daintree <3 I have a strong desire to further my and learn new knowledge and skills in whatever way that I can. I’m a very hard worker, I’m up for anything, I’ll give anything my best shot and always will push myself to do the best job I possibly can. My happy place is in amongst nature, I love exploring new places and learning more and more about the earth that we all co exist on. I always knew that I would wwoof to travel as it has always been an option for me growing up around plenty of wwoofers and hearing their stories. Now the time has come that I can’t keep my insatiable appetite for adventure at bay!

We have the pleasure of living on the beautiful Tuntable Falls Community, an intentional community set up over 40 years ago by a group of awesome people that wanted to live differently to the norm. Our valley edges Nightcap National Park and is filled with natural beauty and opportunities for hiking and creek swimming. Sometimes the valley is quiet and at other times there are social events such as community dinners, bush dances and other social gatherings. Nimbin village is less than 10 minute drive away and has most conveniences. We are a family of two adults and two children. We have a vegetable garden that always has something fresh growing and different fruit and nut trees scattered about. We have a few bee hives and regularly harvest honey.We also cultivate oyster and shiitake mushrooms. We have a pet parrot, guinea pig and chickens. There is a private space separate from our main living space for visitors. It is a light airy space with a queen size bed. There is access to broadband internet. We have a composting toilet and outdoor shower.
