I spent 3 weeks at SA304’s home last November. They are located on the beautiful North coast of Kangaroo Island and they have lots of olive trees and fig trees on their property. They are great people. They welcomed me as I were a member of their family, always very attentive that I felt well. They gave me varied jobs to avoid I get bored or tired. Each mid-morning we had a break for a cup of tea or coffee. It was a special time to watch through the window the abundant coloured birds and parrots having a bath in the garden ! We had lots of time to talk and they were very patient with my basic English 🙂 Each evening we had a delicious meal, Dan is a great and passionate cook !
The house is lovely and very clean. The bed and bedroom comfortable. I could do a washing machine several times. But you have to know that there is not much reception from Telstra in the house, sometimes you have it but it is not permanent. So most of time you have to move away in the property (or in the neighbour land) to find signal to use your mobile phone. It was enough for me to check my e-mails and to send photos on Facebook.
The property is quite isolated, but without a car it is still possible to walk around (3,5 km to get to the beautiful Stokes Bay beach). The area is superb and there are plenty of kangaroos, mostly on the end of the day. One day my Hosts invited me for a night walk in the property with a torch to see the unbelievable abundant wildlife : kangaroos, wallabies, possum…There were so many, it was amazing :blink:
Several times I went fishing a lobster on his boat. It was a nice opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the coast and see seals and pelicans, and also eat an excellent chilly lobster afterwards if we were lucky enough to catch one or two 😉
On my days off I spent great time with the Hosts around the island. We visited many great places together and she taught me lots about the region and the way of life of the residents.
It is a memorable WWOOFing experience. I recommend it to you if you want to discover the beautiful Kangaroo Island, learn about olives and figs and spend time with nice people.
