What you'll do

HELP OUR MICRO-BUSINESS RECOVER FROM THE FIRES You leave the city behind and travel through the back roads of the NSW Southern Highlands. As you are driven along a gravel road you pass through a sandstone tunnel and stop at a lookout. Then you drop 500 meters into the river valley as you travel through Nattai National Park and your Guide tells you about the native trees, animals and local legends. You are taken to your private site by the river and, as it is a micro-group Adventure for just one or two, you are then left to experience living by a sparkling stream with no-one else around. You are staying off-grid in a solar powered quirky retro caravan and exploring the valley or sitting by the stream. You have a long hot completely private outside shower with a stunning outlook. You put together the semi-prepared menu and cook on the BBQ overlooking the stream. You experience what it is like breath pure fresh air, to hear nothing but the sounds of nature and to see nothing but the sky full of stars. On the last day of your Adventure you see how I live off the grid and how my property mostly survived the bush fires, what I had put in place in preparation that turns my cabin into a ‘water bubble’ in the face of an ember attack or fire front. You are driven by your Guide in an off road vehicle on the reverse journey out of the hidden valley back to Mittagong Station

Calvin

I survived the NSW Bush Fires staying in place at my home in the middle of a National Park. I have been Custodian of my 125-acre property, completely surrounded by National Parks, for over 20 years. During that time, I have been trained as a Wildlife Rescue Officer, led the local Landcare Bush Regeneration Group and undertaken stream water testing for Sydney Water Catchment Authority. I am passionate about the outdoors, back to nature, reforestation, living off-grid, self-sufficiency, renewable power and a sustainable approach to living. I am knowledgeable about local history and local Aboriginal dreamtime stories. I monitor endangered species in my area, in particular the Brush-tailed Rock-wallaby and the Glossy Cockatoo. I know about local native trees, wildlife and hiking trails. In my youth I completed full outdoor 'Scout' training
