    Short Property Description

    Welcome to Faraway – a little bit of paradise up in the hills out of Dungog. We are setting up this place for sharing survival skills, bush crafts and nature connection. In this current Covid climate, Wwoofing/ doing a live in exchange, is the main was we have been still sharing these skills. We welcome those who would like to learn these skills in exchange for helping us out.

    We love help for making this place more liveable, food producing and also for creating space / materials for teaching bush skills. The work is varied – does involve weeding sometimes, sometimes creating, gardening, constructing.

    68 Acres on at the base of the Barrington Tops National Park. Pristine Creek for swimming and exploring. Walking tracks.

    We also have friendly goats, a pony and chickens.

    Work examples: maintaining/building walking tracks, maintaining/constructing camp facilities. Collecting fireweed/firewood/horse poo/rocks/paramatta grass. Gardening. Road repair. Collecting materials for camps. Making Bush shelters.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    Organic, some biodynamic and permaculture. We are still learning, though can see what we have done so far is good for the land. We try to use muscle over machine when we can. Its a full body workout being here.

    Why I became a WWOOF Host

    We became WWOOF hosts because we are a young family and we need help to be able to look after the land. Also to be able to run our life-changing programs in nature connection, bush crafts and survival skills we need help in setting up facilities and collecting materials to help make the programs run smoothly.

    Also we have been WWOOFers ourselves and we want to give people a wonderful WWOOFers experience.
