We are a family of 3 (Andrew, Kate and 8 y.o. boy Levi) who like interesting people and dialogue so don't be boring or too over the top and we should get along fine. We also have a friendly dog George. And 3 chickens.

Healesville is in the centre of the Yarra Valley that is one of Australia's premier wine regions. Kate Goodman (your host) is one of Australia's highly regarded wine makers. So if you like wine and wine making this will be good for you.
Mostly simple gardening, weeding, housework, washing, laundry, mowing the lawn, whipper snippering, pruning, trimming small trees. Clean out our small work shed. Nothing overly technical or hard. But still an honest 1/2 days work. You won't be asked to work like a dog but we don't like lazy arse loafers either.
We have separate accommodation downstairs with your own bathroom. There is not a separate lounge room other than outdoors decking and verandah . Share kitchen. You will be able to make your own food or share meals or a combination. We would like to be respectful of one another space - lets spend time together but not all the time. We have a spare vehicle you may use. We can supply food and lodging. We can also supply good quality wine.
Its a wine region, so there's plenty of wine. Natural rivers, forrests, mediation, arts, cycling, wine tasting, cheesing tasting (it is food paradise), Awesome pubs and restaurants. We are 50 m from the township. We work hard and like time to relax at the end of the day.
