Moora Moora is a co-operative residential community made up of a diverse group of about 50 adults and 20 children. We deliberately choose to live together in six small hamlets located on a beautiful co-operatively owned 245 hectare property situated at an altitude of 700 metres on Mt Toolebewong.
The community is situated near the township of Healesville, approximately 67 km, about 90 minutes by car, to the east of the city of Melbourne. Melbourne is Australia's second largest city and capital of the state of Victoria. It is located in the south eastern corner of continental Australia
Moora Moora is private property. It is open to visitors only on our open days which are held on the first Sunday of every month at 1.30pm, except on days of Total Fire Ban.
On these days you can join a tour of the property, meet some of the members and residents of the community and discuss Moora Moora and how we work together to manage our community and property. Please meet at the Lodge (the red brick building visible from the front gate) at 1.30pm sharp, or tours may have already left.
Moora Moora is a participant in the Willing Workers on Organic Farms (WWOOF) scheme. International and Australian members of the Wwoof scheme are welcome to stay at Moora Moora as guest workers.
You will have an opportunity to work with members and residents of the community, to experience and observe our lifestyle, and to enjoy our Australian bush environment.
The Learning Centre at Moora Moora hosts courses and workshops relevant to sustainable community living.
The courses we host are relevant to or arise from our experience of living this lifestyle. Many are provided by members of the Moora Moora community, but the Centre is also home to courses provided by others.
Courses have covered a wide range of interests: yoga and qi gong, sacred ecology and spirituality, living in community, eco-village design and stand-alone solar power systems accreditation for electricians are just some examples.
