Welcome travellers!! Are you looking for a holiday adventure with awesome people, great food and a stunningly beautiful place to stay? Come and join us as a WWOOFer at the Krishna Farm New Govardhana in Murwillumbah!WWOOFers (willing workers on organic farms) work for 5hrs/day on 6 days/week in return for free accommodation and meals. We mainly need your support in our organic gardens and around the Krishna Village where our WWOOFers and guests stay. After work, you can enjoy the beauty of our farm, hike Mount Warning, drive to Tweed Heads or Byron Bay for a surf or swim in the river that crosses our farm. We are one of the biggest WWOOFing hosts in Australia, so you will meet 40-50 awesome people, connect and probably continue your journey with new friends!Need a second year visa to extend your Australian adventure? Many of our WWOOFers stay for 2-3 months to get the necessary hours, just get in touch and let us know!Don't want to work but need a room to stay? Not a problem - get in touch and rent one of our rooms at an affordable rate!

We experienced true Hare Krishna life in both the way we were met on site, the accommodation and the food. The food is different and it is served in a communal way ... an experience for all the family

It's easy to have no car. I visit the farm all the time and once we park we don't use our vehicle. It's nice to walk up to the temple and to meals. Easy and kind of groovy.
