    Helpers must be able to communicate well in English.

    Mature, hands on, enthusiastic, cheerful single or couple to assist around busy station (farm), farmstay accommodation, homestead & garden.

    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.

    Usually lots of variety in jobs. Lots of animals to look after, helping with farmstay, cleaning, gardening, watering trees, painting, unskilled farmwork etc

    Helpers are welcomed as part of our family & enjoy excellent meals and friendship.

    Good, clean accommodation with very good beds is offered in a fully furnished house adjacent to homestead, house sharing with our 25 year old son.

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

    One week to settle in and see if we are all happy then can continue for one month or longer if all is well. Average approx 30 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.

    Work done with us can go towards your regional requirement for visa extension.
