    Description

    We need an enthusiastic, friendly young woman to help us now in our safe and happy environment.
    A real and wonderful Aussie Outback Experience of a lifetime with a great family is waiting for you - great food, very good and clean accommodation, very organised, interesting environment and lots of different ways to help us...never boring with always lots happening. You won't be paid but no expenses either.
    We are needing help starting asap between now and mid December. Minimum three weeks. 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 and homestead.
    We have had lots of single girls with our family of 70 plus volunteers recommend an absolute minimum of one month but their preference was for much longer. It is a very safe and happy place as you will see from our volunteer feedback. Many of our volunteers return to visit us as their Aussie family and continue to recommend us and the outback experience with us to their friends. We have had absolutely amazing volunteers from France, the UK, Ireland, Denmark, USA, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, Finland and Italy.....now we have very special 'family' 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.
    In exchange you will 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.
    20-25 hours per week with flexible hours and lots of free time.
    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!
