We are looking for one or two people who would like to join us on our property close to Canberra Due to the Corona Virus we will only take people that have not been in an airport for 14 days or more and have not had contact with people who could be infected. If you have been in a hostel or with large groups of people you might be carrying the virus and not know.
We are seeking fun loving , willing people to help with a lot of different activities on our riverside property. It is a substantial property and there is always plenty to do. But there is a lot of fun too ! You will see from our reviews that we care about our guests and ensure they love being here!
You will be helping us in our home in the countryside not far from the City. We are lucky to be on the beautiful Murrumbidgee River which is popular with all the horses and other animals. You can learn an awful lot about the Australian way of life and the environment is a natural Haven, especially if you love photography, trekking, swimming, canoeing, cooking , and observing an abundance of wild life.
The help you can provide may include a range of things inside or outside the homestead. Our guests often like to do some different things which include.....
gardening, cleaning, painting, carpentry, house keeping, laundry, looking after our big beautiful Maremma dog Sophia and Oscar the cat, cooking, domestic maintenance, driving the tractor and trucks, maintaining the pool, irrigation repairs, weeding or fencing...you can plant trees and vegetables in the garden . Maybe you can teach 4 year old Jack Piano or guitar !
The estate is a property on 80 Hectares (200 acres) of land fronting the Murrumbidgee River 25 minutes from Canberra, the nation's capital city . It is only a 3 hour drive to Sydney and enjoys vivid colours, beautiful views and spectacular countryside. It is a short drive to the beach and close to the snow fields in Winter time.
The homestead was built in 1994 and was awarded the Master Builders House of the year. Since then it has been continually developed and we are constantly working on maintaining the irrigation system and gardens . We enjoy having friends and family coming for holidays and birthday parties. Accommodation is in a beautiful state room with ensuite facing the garden or a private air conditioned caravan in the orchard if you prefer total privacy .
We have numerous horses here with opportunities to ride, hundreds of kangaroo, deer, wombats and many more wild animals and birds to see and photograph. There are motorbikes, quads, canoes and even a flight in our aerobatic aeroplane to see the countryside for those adrenalin junkies. We encourage our guests to do nature walks, or generally relax in the garden when help is finished and they have days off. This is a 'one of a kind' place in Australia and many of our guests become close friends and come back to stay with us numerous times. We kind of think of them as our extended family.

You can learn everything from making beds through gardening (dead heading roses, trimming trees, using mowers, chain saw, whipper snipper, weeding), painting, farming, cooking, driving the club car, a postie bike, farm machines, fencing tools, cattle mustering and many more activities. You may also get to fly in an aerobatic plane. Our guests enjoy swimming in the heated pool (subject to conditions) ,playing pool, tennis or table tennis, walking , photography, cooking and many more activities....or just relaxing and listening to the birds. But the most...you can learn a lot about yourself and enjoy solitude if you want......
It is a big home so there is some cleaning, ironing and general maintenance. We usually cook dinner together so it is a great shared cultural exchange and it is not a part of the daily work routine. There is also some gardening (planting, weeding, mowing, leaf blowing ) as it is a property of 80 ha with a veggie garden, orchard and a beautiful rose garden. We have also a number of more specialised tasks for people who may be more interested in higher skilled activities such as mechanical , building, painting, farming tasks and so on. You can also learn to operate a range of machines if you like and perform other tasks that will help you in later ventures. We prefer our guests to be 25 years old or more with some 'life' experiences.......'but that's negotiable too.
English, Polish, some French
We offer our guests a beautiful King or Queen size bed in a large room with bathroom adjoined and a nice private caravan in the garden. Some nights we watch movies on the big screen after dinner, play cards or play pool or table tennis downstairs in the games room.
On your free time you can swim in the pool or canoe in the river, fish, hike, run or walk, play tennis , ride on push bikes or a motorbike, drive the club car to the river, use the gym, take photos, read books, watch movies or play piano.
