    About us:
    We are a young vegetarian Australian family (Stefan and Bronte) with a 16 month old baby (Finn) and a baby on the way due October!

    Our background is science in the fields Marine Biology and Ecology.
    Stefan works out on the reef and Bronte is on maternity leave at home.

    We love walks in nature, hiking, kayaking, gardening, hanging out with our animals, family and friends.

    About our Sanctuary:

    We both care deeply about animals which is why we started an animal sanctuary. It is mostly for chickens from battery farms but we have other rescue animals such as ducks, dogs, cats and Guinea fowl.
    -Note at the moment we have managed to rehome all of our battery hens!

    Who we are seeking:

    We are seeking a kind hearted animal lover to help us with the care of our animals. Some of these animals have had a horrible life before they came to us so we need someone to help us who truly loves and cares for animals as a big part of what we do is rehabilitation.

    Because we have a young child our house hold is a quiet, safe and peaceful place for non- partiers. We don't drink or smoke.

    The Job:

    The care of the animals is the main job however we also need help with house hold and garden jobs!
