  • Description

    Description

    We own and run a high country station 40 km from Wanaka bordering the national park an amazing part of NZ. We're a family of four with two boys aged 5 and 6.
    You would be living in one of the most beautiful parts of Nz which we share with our animals and many tourists who travel to the mt Aspiring National Park for the spectacular scenery and walking tracks.

    We require help from time to time to help with projects around the house and farm, gardening and general maintenance. We also have a summer business if an real fruit ice cream and coffee caravan which we may need some help with during March.

    If you love people, food, animals and the outdoors this would be a great Workaway holiday for you.
