    Short Property Description

    Walwa Park is a 46 acre mixed small farm on Melbourne’s urban perimeter. Adjacent to Mount Disappointment State forest, our farm grazes livestock and has a working organic market garden providing fresh produce to locals and to farmers markets. The livestock includes sheep, goats and cattle, and the farm is still being developed. Accommodation for sleeping is in a restored caravan close to the main house, and all meals are included and you reside with the family.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    The market garden is operated on organic principles.  The balance of farm enterprise could best be described as regenerative.

    There is a substantial area set aside for native vegetation regeneration.

    Why I became a WWOOF Host

    We have a number of friends who host WWOOFers and became interested in the concept. Our friends have had positive experiences with their WWOOFers and we are keen to share our home, knowledge and experience.
