Short Property Description
Our property is an eco-tourism retreat in a large private habitat reserve, 50 minutes south from Hobart Tasmania. Lots of birds, wildlife, forest, walking tracks. Variety of tasks, including construction, firewood cutting, walking track and cabin maintenance. As Covid has reduced our tourism activity, most tasks are physical and outdoor, associated with property maintenance. Few of the tasks are cabin housekeeping, so if cleaning and guest services are your preferred main activities, you might be happier at a different property.
Organic/Biological methods we use
This is not a farm. We do not have captive animals or non-native plants. This is a private habitat reserve, a place of exceptional natural beauty where we protect the native habitats and animals and share this with guest. Conservation covenants protect the natural values.
This is a good place to learn about sustainable technology. Our electricity is off grid solar, heating is wood fired with most wood being grown on the property. We have dry compost toilets, we harvest, treat and dispose our own water. We are 3800 tonnes per year carbon positive.
