Convenient stay in Melbourne SE and Off-Grid Community Farm Projects near Maryborough,Vic.

  • Marker details
  • Descriptioni have been on couchsurfing network for years hosting many people.. and i think this HippoHelp network is a great idea.
    I am flexible with my time (especially during the week days) and love to hang out and make new friends..
    In the summer I travel around Victoria and Australia a lot, going on road trips with friends and many music festivals -camping in the bush etc..
    I am into music (composing/playing); Alternative health / medicine ; Electronics / Engineering / technology ; Anything weird wacky unusual unexplained strange secret, etc etc...;
    Business combining most of the above, ;) ..
    The world is full of amazing things and possibilities and Life can never be dull for the seeker with an open mind.

    I do not drink or smoke and i prefer vegetarian food but still i m pretty flexible..
    During the warmer months me and my crew travel to various outdoor music festivals around Australia and we run some fun projects like a Live Jamming/Chill Space, etc.. We create a groovy community home in the bush for a few days .. My helper/guests usually are welcome to come with us to experience these adventures which are awesome amount of fun !

    Lately we have been busy creating an off grid community farm in central Victoria - a kind of Artisan Makers and Growers Community of creative spaces. there are lots of cool projects on the go . if you like to be involved and help then please feel free to contact. The conditions on the farm are pretty basic and if you have done plenty of camping in your life you will feel right at home. There are all basic conveniences and if you like spending time in nature you will love it. A private space can be available in a caravan or share common areas. We often gather to watch an interesting doco or a movie after work in the evening or just socialize and share meals, etc... there are lakes and rivers nearby and we take brakes and go swimming on hot days...
    Campervans welcome and a spare bicycle or two can be made available.

    We do frequent road trips between Melbourne suburbia and our land near Maryborough, Vic. so it is often possible to arrange pickup and drop off in Melbourne . Also there is a train going to Maryborough from Melbourne.

    We prefer someone to stay for a couple of weeks or more. If you are looking for just a couple of days it's not really worth it :) Looking forward to a possibility of meeting you
