Short Property Description
Mt Yibbi Tiny Farm is four acres of mostly established olive trees in Hallett, a small town on the Barrier Highway in the Mid North, South Australia.
Hallett is a true Australian tiny town on the edge of the bush, surrounded by (sometimes snow-capped!) mountains with one pub and a general store and a beautiful public pool and very friendly locals.
Hallett is at the centre of three trails – Heysen, Mawson and Dare’s Hill Drive.
Currently being regenerated using permaculture principles, there are various plots and plantings and experiments occurring and room for many more.
Mt Yibbi is the Ngadjuri name for Mt Bryan, which is visible from the back paddock, along with the best sunsets.
The farm is being developed as an Artist’s Retreat and there is a library and musical instruments and visual art and plenty of scope for creative expression.
Hallett is close to the Clare Valley and Barossa Wine regions, and half way between Ikara-Flinders Ranges and the city of Adelaide, which are both an easy three hours in either direction
Boss J Clark is the super friendly farm puppy and there is are rabbits, hares and foxes who visit the farm, along with Mama and Joey kangaroo and an echidna, and all the birds you could want.
There are sheep who live across the road, where mobs of kangaroos and emus run. There is a sunroom/office to watch the animals from with pretty good internet as well as a couch and Netflix and a PS4.
The farm offers a range of comfy accommodation: a big farmhouse, a partly renovated cottage, swags with a seasonal bonfire.

Why I became a WWOOF Host
Mt Yibbi Tiny Farm is in a beautiful part of the world, I have a PhD. in Aboriginal Literature and a lot of knowledge, and books, to share about Australia.
I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, which means I sometimes get flares which slow down my many Bill Mollison inspired projects and I could use some help.
I am a good cook, have good coffee and fresh seasonal produce and olive oil.
