  • Description


    We are looking for people to help out on our 10 acre property. We are located near many wineries, Kinglake National Park is across the road and great for bushwalking as well as the Toolangi National Park. We have a creek on our property, where you can fish for fresh water trout and yabbies. We have 2 sheep and an Alpaca at the moment, but looking to get some more animals, some small goats, we also have chickens and eat farm fresh eggs and vegetables in our garden. Nearby there are also some beautiful waterfalls and many other tourist attractions close by such as the Healesville wildlife sanctuary, Chocolaterie and ice-creamery. We are a family of three at the moment my husband and I and my son 21 years old.

    We are a typical Australian family living in the country, we are approximatey 70 kms from Melbourne CBD and public transport by train to Lillydale and either a bus service from there or we can also pick up from Yarra Glen which is approxmimately 20 mins away. We have many native wildlife animals on our beautiful property, kangaroos, koalas, wombats, wallabies, possums and birdlife such as King parrots, eastern rosellas, crimson rosellas, kookaburras and many more. The area also has some beautiful scenery and native flora.

    We both work full time and would love some help with gardening, possibly some building experience would be great as we would like to build a carport next to the garage, as well as some house renovation work on our home such as wood flooring and bathroom renovations and painting.
