The Experience

I am an artist and widow and I live on the Gloucester river on a rural, non-farming, bush property of 48 hectares (120 acres). I would like help maintaining the property which needs some TLC. In exchange, I would provide accommodation in a caravan next to my home, or in a spare room, and 3 meals a day. I live near world heritage Barrington Tops. Couples are very welcome. Work would be fairly physical.

I spent nearly two weeks at Tracey's and it has been lovely! She showed me her way of living and her property is just so idyllic. I loved the river which is just across from the house and totally fell in love with the surrounding nature and of course her beautiful animals. We went to the City of Gloucester for various occasions and I got to experience a yoga class, met a lot of locals and accompanied her to the local festivities on Australian Day. Apart from that Tracey made me feel welcome instantly and I learned a lot over my stay. Dinner, music time and playing games where always fun!

This was my first worldpackers experience, and my was it an amazing one! Tracey is so incredibly lovely and truly welcomes you into her home, family, and friendships. I was lucky enough to visit surrounding towns, the local national park, and go for several swims in the creek on her property. Mealtime and music time (and wine time!) was a highlight of every day. I learned so much about sustainability, slow country living, and Aussie tradition. I couldn't recommend this experience more highly!

Definitely this experience was one of a kind. Tracey's universe is magical, surrounded by nature and beautiful birds. She is a sweet soul with a big heart, so generous and always open to share and support you in everything you need. We spent lots of time swimming in the river, cooking delicious dinners, listen to good music and doing yoga together. Gloucester is a beautiful small town with amazing views and wild life. The work was very flexible and her house is lovely. I highly recommend visiting Tracey if you love nature and want to have a good time. You won't regret! Thank you Tracey

Thank you for sharing my home and environment Nathan. It was lovely having you here. I can’t take credit for any of the meals! Your cooking is already missed. Although we did manage a poke bowl with all the leftovers last night. Delicious! I wish you well for your future and hope to hear about your adventures. Go well.

Tracey is incredible and a unique person, very interesting, intentional in everything she does for nature and loves it. she knows a lot about animals and she will teach you a lot. I shared a digital drawing course, yoga, we went out to party and much more. I felt very good as if she was part of the family. Sharing meals daily and always with her patience for everything, even with my very poor English, lover of good food and good music. amazing sustainability anxiety in a wonderful place, thanks Tracey

Thanks Jose, it was fun having you here and your English skills are not too bad. Our miscommunications gave us a good laugh at times and the translation app worked well most of the time. Ha ha! When it didn’t that caused more laughter. I really appreciate everything you have done. It’s a great relief to see things improving around my place and your efforts made a great step forward. Thank you.
