    We run miniature belted Galloway cattle on 3 properties (Georges creek, Tallangatta & Sandy Creek) in a very scenic pristine beautiful quiet location in North East victoria. Close to Tallangatta township with supermarket & other facilities. Our main property consists of 150 acres overlooking Lake Hume, made up of grazing land & bushland. Livestock incl a traditional Belted Galloway cattle stud, Wiltshire Horn sheep & rare poultry breeds. We are very relaxed & easy-going, meals will be with the family of 5 (4 children, aged 5-17) so you will be part of our family. You will experience many things such as cutting firewood, fencing, animal husbandry, growing vegetables & fruit, showing cattle, etc. Accommodation is in a cozy caravan beside our home, with wireless internet and mobile phone reception. We can pick you up and drop off from Wodonga train station or Albury train/bus station or Albury airport. Recreation activities in the area include fishing, kayaking lake and rivers, bush walking, bike riding on rail trail. Work includes working with livestock, planting, growing, maintenance of fruit trees & vegetable garden, general farm chores, building projects. Meat-based mixed diet but can cater for other diets as food is abundant in our hoisehold, Main meals will be with family of 6 (includes 4 children aged 6-17), so basically you will become a member of our family.
