  • Description


    Christine and I (Peter) operate a business in an amazing and beautiful part of Western Australia. We are just 1 hours drive from the Perth CBD and are unique in that we are located in the middle of the Avon Valley National Park on a 730 hectare property that to put it mildly "stunning in its beauty" There are two aspects where we require assistance due to the magnitude of the property, mostly it is just Maitenance and care of private infrastructure as in garden and pool, painting and improvements, cleaning and looking after dog and other pets. We also operate a very labour intensive Corporate Residental Conference Centre where groups of people from some the worlds largest resources companies use our faculties for training and development programs, we provide accomodation, meals and personalised service and attention 24/7 to a 5 star standard. As such we are kept very busy in this area and we need help looking after our animals and our Homestead and garden. In exchange we are able to offer accomodation, quality food, and access to an amazing varieties of activities on the property. We can offer a variety of accomodation of your choice, luxury campsite, farmhouse accomodation, individual room or your own camper. Food is provided for you to cook, and all linen , power and LPG gas requirements are included. Couples are preferred but individuals will be considered. The property provides opportunities for camping, bushwalking , kayaking ( 6.5 kms of river frontage) , swimming (we have two swimming pools). Horse experience and riding is an added advantage but not necessarily needed. A lot of the work is of a physical nature . There is a great opportunity for international visitors to experience a total Australian experience with the property awash with Kangaroos , family of Emus, echidnas and a massive array of native birds.
