Short Property Description
Hello, we are Katrina and Finn and we live at Beachwood. It is a 2 acre patch of land that is part of the Eco-Village in the beautiful Currumbin Valley. Situated in the hinterlands of the Gold Coast, Queensland, we are just ten minutes from the BEACH and half an hour from all a city can offer. The bus pictured is the woofers accom! So far, people love it!
Katrina is an architect/builder/ and Finn is a sculptor/builder/musician we have a lot to share with a willing worker and we always try to have fun while we create! We speak French, German and welcome all cultures…
Here on Beachwood we grow as much of our own food as possible. We are building our own unique timber framed house, as well as maintaining the land and undertaking a number of other interesting projects. We are looking for WWoofers that have building skills to help us finish our unique hand-made timber house and general gardening skills.
Full Property Description
Currumbin Valley is a nature-lover’s paradise. Carving its way through the mountain ranges of the Queensland/New South border region, the Currumbin Valley follows the course of the Currumbin Creek, 20km west to its source at the base of Mt Springbrook. A sub-tropical rainforest environment abounds, with a World-Heritage-Listed rainforest walk, the Cougal Cascades (waterfalls) and abundant, native flora and fauna. This pristine rainforest is part of the eastern section of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia and is the showpiece of Australia’s Green Cauldron.
No other Gold Coast Hinterland destination is accessible from the coast within a 10 minute drive. Currumbin Valley is accessed via Currumbin Creek Road, just off the M1 (Pacific Motorway), via Stewarts Road.
It’s the perfect spot for a family picnic and a refreshing dip at the rockpools, or bushwalking through the native rainforest. Taking the high road won’t leave you disappointed either, travelling up Tomewin Mountain Road for spectacular views of the Valley below.
