    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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.

    Help

    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.
