    Description

    Help wanted from mid May!

    Do you want to join the Corynnia Station Volunteering Family and have the Aussie experience of a lifetime?

    We are looking to welcome mature, enthusiastic and capable couple or singles with good 'hands on' skills and good English - to be part of our family and our busy outback farm life. Preferably one month or more but willing to consider a shorter time.

    We have been welcoming volunteers into our family over the past six years as part of our family. We enjoy excellent meals and friendship In exchange for volunteers helping us on our busy outback station.

    Please only apply if you have the enthusiasm and maturity to fit the description - mature approach, hands on, enthusiastic, cheerful single or couple to assist around busy household and large farm - mainly helping with farmstay accommodation, homestead & garden.

    Usually plenty of variety and life is never dull. Lots of animals to look after, helping with farmstay accommodation and homestead - cleaning, cooking, gardening, watering trees, painting, maintenance and some unskilled farmwork etc.

    Our station is situated on the edge of the Outback on the Hay Plains between Griffith & Hay in Western NSW. Farming cotton, rice, fodder & Merino sheep.

    Good, clean accommodation with very good beds is offered in a fully furnished house adjacent to homestead, house sharing with our 26 year old son who works with us.

    We also like to work around your talents too so if you are a good painter we do some painting or if you are a builder we can do some maintenance. All depends on what needs doing at the time but variation and friendship is assured.

    One week trial and longer if all is well. Average approx 25 hours per week.

    Pool & tennis court set in beautiful gardens - for your enjoyment.

    We have had lots of volunteers here - usually with great success as you will see by our references.

    We can collect you from Griffith if you have no vehicle but a drivers licence is preferred.

    For internet access bring your Telstra device or you can access the internet weekly at Griffith library.

    If you want to ride the quad bikes or motor bikes here on the farm (quietly and safely) you will need to have the appropriate insurance so please organise that and have a copy with you on your arrival.

    We look forward to receiving your application.
