Activist intentional community

Firestone Sanctuary is a 77 hectare property and intended ecovillage in Laceys Creek, Queensland, Australia. It will be a sanctuary for native biodiversity, a beautiful retreat for healing, an eco-centre to educate the public, an intentional living community for passionate environmentalists, and a template for the creation of other similar communities.

The focus is on proving a more ethical and egalitarian socioeconomic model. It aims to bring mutualism and sustainable innovation to the production of goods and services, rather than being a lifestyle retreat or escape from society. It aims to build a model for society that intrinsically values life, human connectivity, authentic relations, responsibility and freedom: a society where people are fulfilled in their work and driven to improve because they are aware of their own self-worth.

Firestone Sanctuary has an extended community network that spreads across Brisbane and Australia with connections to other activist, artist and environmental interest groups. This community has an open collaboration model that aims to extend the positive impact of the project beyond the immediate property boundaries.

The property is quite mountainous with semi-cleared eucalypt woodland at the East side and more lush subtropical forest on the West side. It is currently accessed through the East, via Dayboro, and a road will be made to join through to access the D'Aguilar National Park directly via vehicle. It is one hour from Brisbane by car.

Firestone Sanctuary is a purpose-driven project and, as such, will be operated on a non-profit basis. Where possible, visitor access will be given freely, as this is a project to improve humanity and share resources, not a commercial venture.


Please donate! Our first priority is installing water storage tanks (approx $3000) so that members have clean water to move in permanently and start setting up the space and gardens as a priority. Tiny homes, caravans and vans typically don't have enough water storage to live off-grid for long, so this is our first priority to helping make this place a home and community.

Please consider sending us a bank transfer of any amount to assist with these costs:

Your generosity is deeply appreciated! Firestone Sanctuary is still in the process of becoming a non-profit, so donations are not yet tax-deductible. While the necessary amount is being fundraised, unspent funds are held in an offset account against the mortgage on the property.
