    Descripción

    We are a small hobby farm on 42 acres of picturesque open forest in a quiet bush setting 80km north of Bundaberg and 50km south of Agnes Water/1770. We moved here from Melbourne in 2007. We used to breed rare pigs but ceased doing that recently. We have a lot of other hobbies and interests including cooking, gardening, furniture making, metal fabrication, house construction and renovation, science, technology and IT. You can see photo's of our place and progress on our photo blog: rahl.smugmug.com. There's 2 of us plus Max, our Maremma sheepdog.

    WHO WE WANT
    We are looking for couples or two women to help with outdoor work such as maintaining and expanding the gardens, keeping the property tidy, construction and general property maintenance. Occasional household chores are required too. We are also interested in a cultural exchange and want helpers who are keen to socialise a bit during their time off.

    WHAT WE OFFER
    Short stays of up to 2 weeks are preferred. Helpers can expect to do up to 4 hours supervised work each morning and have Sunday's off. We provide 3 good meals per day (We cannot cater to fussy eaters. We sometimes raise pigs and have meat with most meals so vegetarians will find it difficult!). Ideally helpers will have their own transport but we can pick people up from Miriam Vale, Agnes Water or the 1770 Turn Off (for Premier buses).

    Accommodation is a cabin with a double bed and two single beds, your own shower and toilet, a basic kitchen and shared laundry facilities. The cabin has a television with access to a large video library, wi-fi with data limited internet access (~500MB/Day). We have large dams suitable for swimming and can take people to the beaches and river. Bicycles and kayaks are also available for use.

    Unfortunately, we cannot help with second year visa's.

    INFORMATION WE WOULD LIKE FROM YOU
    Please make first contact through the workaway site. We will always reply to genuine contacts and can usually do so within a few hours. In your message, please say which date you are thinking of arriving and how long you are planning to stay, where you are now and whether you have your own transport or need to be picked up. Ideally your profile should already include a description of yourself, your interests, skills, any work experience and a photo.
