I am a self employed father of 3 beautiful children aged 15, 13, and 11. I teach leadership through personal coaching, team building activities and camps that I run at my farm, in Mt Macedon 1 hour north of Melbourne. 1 are position 2km from the Bendigo train line so it is very easy to travel to and from the city. I am a very outdoor-focused person and often through work and pleasure go bush walking, camping, rock climbing, surfing, skiing, sailing and wind surfing. The farm has sheep, cattle and riding horses.

Guests of mine can expect great accommodation and 3 meals a day in return for 5 hours work. Plus the opportunity to learn and participate in some of outdoor activities described above, if they coincide with the project that I working on at the time either at the farm, on leadership camps or on my yacht. The area of my farm and our business allows us to sign off days work as credit to 2nd visa applications.
English and Spanish and my partner speaks French
Accommodation will either be at my farm 50 minutes north of Melbourne at the base of Mt Macedon or on the yacht in St Kilda Melbourne. This will depend on the type of work that I have prioritized at the time.
I have been a back packer myself so I know the type of experiences travellers are looking for. I have always ensured that my guests have a healthy mix of work and play and an emphasis on ensuring that they get to experience the real authentic Australia.
