  • Description


    Hi travellers! We are a blended family of 7 living on 10 acres in the Adelaide Hills. We bought our property just over 2 years ago and have spent a lot of time trying to manage weed species so that we can get native trees and grasses to grow again to support the kangaroos, koalas, bandicoots, echindas and birds that share our home. We are also trying to establish a good pasture so that we can work towards a self-sustained lifestyle.

    Now, here's the BEST news....
    About our place:
    We live on top of a north facing hill with city views all the way across the ocean to Yorke Peninsula!
    We are only 7 minutes to the beautiful town of Stirling and 20 minutes to the City - having your own car is important
    There are heaps of native animals on and around our property
    We have a swimming pool that you can use to cool off after work...and
    We will make our self-contained guest accommodation available for you to use!!!

    We really look forward to hearing from you!
    Jo, Angus & Kids

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As guest room owners and travellers ourselves, we really enjoy having people stay with us and share stories of their home country and adventures. Our home really does provide a true 'Aussie experience' surrounded by gum trees and iconic animals. As there's never a day without a job, you will have many opportunities to improve or gain useful skills and knowledge.

  • Help


    We have many different chores to be done which include: gardening, weed control, farm work, irrigation, fencing, pasture preparation, small building and maintenance projects. We would also be happy for support with the occasional school run and watching the kids if we need to duck out. For any Spanish speakers, language practice would be very welcome for my daughter who is learning Spanish at Uni.

    We are quite flexible and our projects can be scheduled to suit your interests, skills and abilities so we would be very happy to hear from you in advance as that will us help plan your stay. We are very keen to have travellers with building, farm and landcare experience.
