Short Property Description
Our property is situated on 50 acres of both bushland and farmland, on the New South Wales Central Coast (between Sydney and Newcastle). We aim to live as sustainably as possible: power is provided by an off-grid solar system, our water supply comes from tanks that collect rainwater from our buildings’ roofs, we treat our own waste water with an eco-friendly Biolytix system and our home is surrounded by a large permaculture garden. The house itself is a ‘retrofitted’ sustainable house, which requires minimal energy for cooling and heating, and was renovated using recycled and eco friendly materials. As well as providing us with a lovely, natural setting in which to live and grow our own food, Melaleuca Park is also used by our family business, which is centred around horses.
