WWOOFing


"Everyone of you is so kind and friendly, we really enjoy staying here with you all. We learned a lot about community living, sharing and team work. Especially the cooking and washing dishes together! We also enjoy the yoga session and eating together during dinner." - Doris, Singapore

"I really enjoyed my stay as a WWOOFer. I rarely see people so welcoming. After having some time on other communities, I can say that Bellbunya can be taken as an example. You have so much positive energies. I'm also very impressed about your communication. Your place is great and you are all amazing cooks!" - Kathy

"Thank-you for your warm and enthusiastic welcome. I really enjoyed my stay and was happy to help you as a wwoofer. A community to watch, I reckon, as you seem pretty well sorted in many ways and most importantly you have a great bunch of members." - Rob, UK

Willing Workers On Organic Farms (WWOOF) is a form of cultural exchange in which WWOOFers live and work as family with host farms, and learn about * the skills of organic growing and * the area they are visiting. WWOOF Australia and their hosts make travelling in Australia easy, safe and more fun for both Australian and Overseas Visitors. (To find out more about WWOOFing and how to become a WWOOFer, go to www.wwoof.com.au).

Bellbunya is a host farm in the WWOOF network ((WWOOF host number QN179). We provide food and accommodation, plus a community experience to WWOOFers for short stays. WWOOFers volunteer alongside us for about 5 hours a day, 6 days a week in a range of projects. Following is our listing from the WWOOF handbook:

"We are a community of approx 15 people offering a working community experience on 40 acres of lush Sunshine Coast hinterland at Belli Park with magnificent views and only a 15 minute drive to the famous Eumundi Markets or half an hour from beautiful Noosa beaches.

Meals are shared in the community house - we provide vegetarian meals and cater for gluten-free diets. The work needing some loving care is varied and changes according to the time of year. Some jobs are gardening, maintenance, building, plumbing, renovation, lawn mowing. There is also cooking, cleaning and other lighter projects including conference set ups etc. We welcome families as well as singles. No illegal drugs. No smoking indoors. There is an (ugly, mosquito infested, septic smelling!!! - just kidding) outdoor designated smoking area. Responsible consumption of alcohol permitted. Can pick up from Eumundi
