    Description

    A real Aussie Outback Experience of a lifetime with a great family is waiting for you. We are needing the help of a couple or singles. If you are enthusiastic, capable and mature with good 'hands on' skills and good English we would like to welcome you to share our lives and help us with our farmstay, homestead and in our beautiful gardens.

    Minimum one month or longer as also suggested by our family of 70 plus volunteers from all over the world, most of whom have been wonderful Frenchies - mainly because they continue to recommend us and the outback experience with us to their friends! We have also had absolutely amazing volunteers from the UK, Ireland, Denmark, USA, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Finland and Italy.....now we have very special 'kids' all over the world and they will always have an Aussie Family!

    We will be needing help mainly with our farmstay - helping us with cleaning and making sure everything is 100% for our guests. Also helping with day to day chores including looking after our many friendly animals - 2 orphan joeys, working sheep dogs and our house dogs as well as maintaining the organisation of the homestead and some help in the garden. If you are a couple and the guy likes more outside work that can be organised - there is always something to be done and variety is assured.

    In exchange, volunteers enjoy excellent accommodation, meals and friendship in exchange for helping us. Pool & tennis court set in beautiful gardens as well as pushbikes and lots of friendly animals including two orphan joeys. There is usually plenty of variety and life is never dull. On the farm we produce cotton, rice, fodder & Merino sheep.

    Our station is easily accessible by train or plane to Griffith, NSW and we can collect volunteers from Griffith. Our property is situated on the edge of the Outback between Griffith & Hay in Western NSW.

    Approximately 20-25 hours per week and no expenses while you are here on the farm.

    We visit town once a week for shopping and appointments. There is a very good Internet and mobile phone signal via our booster but because of very limited download allowance, volunteers will need to bring their own Telstra device and mobile phone. Alternatively, the Internet can be accessed for free weekly at the Griffith Library when we go to town together every week.

    We look forward to receiving your application!
