alternate lifestyle community


These days many people, disillusioned with the shortcomings of mainstream life, are eager to find better alternatives for living. While some people explore spiritual paths that are different to the one they've been born in, others are eager to check out alternative education options for their kids (such as homeschooling), alternative agriculture (such as permaculture and biodynamics) and alternative, more affordable and healthier home building techniques (such as rammed earth and mud brick).

In some parts of Australia such as northern New South Wales, southern Queensland and parts of Victoria, alternative lifestyle communities have been established which sometimes focus on one or more of these areas, and sometimes on simply living a healthier, more natural life. Each is different, and while some definitely have a somewhat hippy vibe, the residents of others are intelligent highly-qualified people who are genuinely searching for positive alternatives to what they consider are the dilemmas of twenty-first century life.

Have you ever visited or lived on an alternative community? What were your impressions?

These communities exist?! What a fantastic idea. That's what I call 'getting back to basic'. Sign me up.

No I haven't however that would be interesting.
I think they would be nice to visit, but I'm a city girl at heart so couldn't live in one.
The closest to one is the organic farm on French Island, Victoria. It's a beautiful place.
No I have never done this or even thought of doing this.
