The House of the Rising Sun. Be the first to watch and wake up to the sunrise in Australia, perched on top of a mountain on the most eastern part of Australia, at the end of a valley, in a secret, giant forest overlooking the vast, majestic Pacific Ocean, is a place called Kinabalu. Many guests & travellers guests started to call it The Treehouse - a name that has now stuck. This is a private conservation park in principle with much work to do, including gardening, tree planting & environmental repair work. Surrounded by a rainforest sanctuary & nature reserve, you can take walks into old growth forest & swim in the waterfalls, so make sure you bring your walking shoes. It has been quite an achievement, building this over the last 11 years. I am presently focused on the garden. Come and plant some herbs if you have a green thumb. See you at The Treehouse - an experience you'll never forget!

Farming Methods: Permaculture
Accommodation Type: In Our Home, Separate Building, Tent, BYO Accommodation
We moved in to this 100 acre property, situated between Pemberton and Northcliffe in the South West of Western Australia, at the end of 2018. It is surrounded by stunning karri forrest and on the crossing of the Bibbulmun walking trail and the Munda Biddi cycling trail. We have a productive home orchard and veggie gardens, as well as ponds and a lake with marron, the largest freshwater crayfish in the world and pretty tasty. We have cows, sheep, chickens, and a couple of worm farms. Also a very energetic young pomeranian dog, Rupert. Plenty of water is also a bonus in this country. In addition to our rammed earth house, there are also 4 holiday cottages on the property. Most of the time, our helpers can stay in one of the cottages if it is not during busy holiday times or long weekends. Otherwise, they stay in our house in the spare room. We have spare bikes for our helpers, so that they can go and explore this beautiful area.

Projects include:

During the winter months, David is busy planting lots of trees, so you will be able to help create a lasting benefit for the future. There are trees for fodder, shelter, fruit and some for longer term timber resource.

We are experimenting with regenerative farming and improving the soil with growing a diverse mix of grasses and making and applying compost teas to increase the subsoil life. Other ongoing projects:

Constructing and maintaining permaculture gardens and orchards, picking berries and fruit. Planting native flowering plants for the bees, propagating and seeding vegetables. 

Making compost and mulching the gardens. 

Woodworking projects, ranging from making greenhouse to re-fitting kitchens in the cottages.

Chopping firewood and collecting kindling.

I think WWOOF is a good way to make yourself useful and get to know about permaculture, local life, people and the country at the same time. I got very much interested into permaculture during my first WWOOF stay and I would be happy to start my own veggie/fruit garden when I get back home. I love being surrounded by natural wide spaces. It's a precious source of inspiration for me.

Accommodation Type: Separate Building
Our web site says it all (please check it out). We live in a beautiful part of the world. It is well & truly worth seeing and we will do our best to show you around and make you feel welcome. We are committed to Permaculture & Bio-dynamic farming and always do our best to make our WWOOFers welcome but in return expect good cooperation. Saeng is an excellent Thai cook so the food is great. 2 WWOOFers at a time is all we can take. Volunteering is mainly animal husbandry, picking, pruning, and planting vegies, weeding and a bit of cooking. We start work at sunrise & finish before lunch time. We are very strict on work ethics but it is rewarding for the right person. It is critical that you know what you are getting into when you go to the tropical rainforests, It is bug heaven with many wild animals including snakes and dingoes. It is quite safe though but if you are paranoid about natural things then this is probably not the place for you. Accommodation is in a bamboo hut. Shared meals, mixed diet. Children b.a. No smoking inside. Negotiable stays after 3-5 day visits.

To go rural in my own backyard. Unfortunately, I won't have the chance to go on a rural placement as part of my degree so am looking to go rural and get some horse-y experience under my belt during one of my university breaks. I am especially interested in WWOOFing experiences that include horse care, mustering or other horse experience activities.

Farming Methods: Organic
Accommodation Type: In Our Home
We live on 50 acres of rolling hills and lush pasture 10 minutes from the large town of Leongatha and 2 hours from Melbourne city. We breed Shetland ponies and Rag Doll kittens. We have recently moved here and have such a lot of work to do renovating the old farm house and putting in a garden and vege patch. We are making ECO ENZYME from vegetable scraps, which we use as a fertilizer and to purify our septic tank and our dams. We are vegetarian and prefer non smoking people. Eco-Enzyme, also known as "Garbage Enzyme," was first introduced by Dr. Rosukon Poompanvong, who is the founder of the Organic Agriculture Association of Thailand. The idea of the project was to cultivate enzymes from organic waste that we would normally throw into garbage bin as organic cleaner. His findings proved not only that this enzyme is cheap and easy to make (in huge volume) but that it is also an effective cleaning detergent. Best of all, it is environmental friendly.

I would like to experience Australian farm life. Growing up in a flower shop back home allowed me to get involved with Thai- tropical agriculture. My grand parents used to have a farm where they grown mango, guava, tamarind and orchid. Coming over to Australia for long time makes me miss my childhood. This is one reason why I would like to join WWOOF because I can bring back my childhood and to learn Western agriculture. Secondly, My passion in farming is to be able to see seeds that I grow by my hands go to plant and fruit and I can cook them instead of buying from supermarket. That will make me feel so proud to see what I have done fruitfully. Lastly, I personally appreciate what nature has given us and how can I reserve them to the next generation.

I joined WWOOF because I want to learn and experience the ways in which different cultures and areas live and farm organically. The idea of working in exchange for staying with a host family seemed very reasonable to me and beneficial for everybody. I love to travel, and this is a beautiful way to do it and get the most out of the experience I’ll have abroad.

I'm joining WWOOF because I love animals, the outdoors, and organic farming. It is my ultimate dream to someday have a small farm of my own. Having experience working on a farm is definitely the first tangible step I can take in that direction. I want to gain as much knowledge as I can in order to be a farmer myself someday. I also find that I am happiest when I'm away from the city, gardening and working with animals. I discovered my passion for organic farming starting at the age of 11. For four years I attended a farm camp in Northern California. I loved with my whole heart working in the garden and tending to the sheep, goats, and cows. I even wrestled a few pigs. The reason why I joined WWOOF, to put it simply, is I because I know I'll enjoy it.

We joined WWOOF for the opportunity to work in organic farms and to learn and live a farm way style of life. We are passionate about farm life. Julio grew up going to the farm every weekend and holidays, and Thais grew up in the middle of the Amazon. And now we feel like we need to learn about farming techniques before moving to our farm.
