Hi, welcome to the beautiful Daylesford region! We are Jill and Phil. We relocated to the picturesque Ballan township 6 years ago from South Australia. In SA we were active hosts with volunteer exchange websites including Workaway for many many years.
Our 5 acre property has a lot of garden areas that constantly need clearing and tidying and we have many small projects in mind so your experiences can be matched with what we need. There is a menagerie of precious animals to look after and there's always plenty to do. Often we just need a house and pet sit as we do go back to Adelaide a lot. We have chickens, sheep, goats, 1 alpaca, 3 ducks, 3 guinea fowl, and Daisy (A rescued Kelpie x) .. who likes lots of walks!
Ballan is well situated and close to transport in Western Victoria and there is a train directly to/from Melbourne. Close by (20 minutes) you have the vibrant and historic Victorian towns of Daylesford and Ballarat.
You would enjoy your own space with a separate bedroom, and bathroom for your private use. We are a very sociable couple and would make you feel at home. I prepare all meals and I've been told I'm not a bad cook so you simply won't go hungry!
We are very happy to get you out and about on days off to see some locals spots and meet other people. We ask for just a few hours a day in return for full board. You don't need to work everyday. Doing a full day here and there and then some days off for sightseeing is maybe a better way to plan things and see more. All we ask is you show some willing and initiative and love our animals as much as we do. My daughter also lives in Ballan so there's the opportunity to mix with some younger folk as well and perhaps do a bit of babysitting of my two active granddaughters (4 and 6).
We can assist with some local transport like running you to the stations or nearest bus stops if you don't have a car. In some cases we are happy to loan one of our cars to you.
We look forward to hosting you soon.
Jill and Phil
