    Short Property Description

    Hello! We’re a couple living in the beautiful Tamar Valley of Tasmania. We’ve been living here for about two years, enjoying the great surroundings of Tamar River/kanamaluka. Our property lies directly on Stony Brook, a small stream that enters the main river. We get regular visitors like black swans, egrets, pelicans and eagles. We’ve also seen echidna’s on the property.

    We have a number of free-range animals, including chickens, turkeys and alpacas. We also have our two dogs, Bella and Meesha. In addition, we grow vegetables and fruit in our garden, using organic techniques to get tomatoes, zucchini, nectarines, and herbs, amongst other plants. There are lots of things to do each day to maintain the property, garden and animals.

    We’re pretty outgoing, taking the chance to visit the best spots Tasmania has to offer. We’ve seen a lot, but there’s plenty for us still to see! We have kayaks and camping gear, which you’ll be able to use.

    We live in a small village called Blackwall, about 25 minutes drive from Launceston. We’re only a short walk from the shops in nearby Exeter or the cafes in Gravelly Beach. We’re even within walking distance of a local winery. It’s just close enough to conveniences without the hustle and bustle of a big town.

    Why I became a WWOOF Host

    As our hobby farm has expanded, we’ve come to realise that with so much going on we need a bit of a helping hand. We’ve helped host WWOOFer’s before for a relative, and we know how rewarding it is to meet new people who are keen to learn new things.

    WWOOF seems a good way for us to meet new people, and maintain the property to do justice to the type of love and care we know the animals need.

    Tasmania is such a beautiful part of the world too, so the chance to showcase this wonderful island to visitors, and do so in a sustainable, green way is a fantastic opportunity.
