Whispering Winds is in bushland 35kms south of Cooktown, near the iconic Black Mountains. Mungumby Creek falls down from the Big Tableland in spectacular cascades, meandering on through the valley it nurtures a beautiful vine rainforest on it's banks, away from the creek the forest opens to open wet sclerophyll woodland, large hard wood trees create shady glades to sit in and special places to dwell.
I often host wwoofers who have helped me create a bio dynamic garden, growing tropical fruit and vegetables, nurtured by the cool spring waters of Mungumby Creek.
I am an artist and a creative, I love exploring new ideas and rehashing old ones, I AM an intuitive who finds nourishment in the natural world, I love exploring the earth, finding it astonishing, amazing and inspirational.
I am surrounded by a wonderland of ecology, rocks, plants, trees, animals, birds, clean water, clear air and rich earth, i am a caretaker for this place that i love and the land nurtures me in return.
I believe it is really important in this speedy time, to spend time connecting with the earth, nature is a meditation, if only we take the time to slow down, breathe deeply, drink in her fragrances and reach out to her, tell her 'Thank you, I love you', listen...and hear her responding.
Whispering Winds is a special place, a safe place where the world stops and nature is waiting for you.
I love welcoming guests and I happily will make you feel at home. If you find your self at Whispering Winds you will have found a 'home from home.'
