About Me

After 6 years living in the NT (Darwin and Alice springs) we have brought a farm on the gippsland lakes near bairnsdale. We have just started building and would love to have people stay with us!! The farm is fairly basic at the moment but is in an amazing location right on the water with our own private beach!! Currently best suited to people who are happy to camp or have their own van.

It is me and my girlfriend Lydia (german) living at the farm. We are open minded young travelers that want to build a sustainable off-grid property where travellers from around the world can come and share experiences with us and perhaps help with a bit of work on the farm!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

you can never meet too many people!! After hosting extensively in the NT our next couch surfing story is to have like minded travellers come and enjoy our farm in gippsland Victoria where we have begun the long journey of building an off-grid community
