  • Help


    We ask that Workawayers guests do 3 hours per day (21 hours per week) of general garden maintenance and any extra tasks that need doing (such as painting etc..) as needed. We are close to the township of Mount Barker, which has everything from shops, cafes, cinema, library and excellent public transport to the city or Adelaide. Helpers without a car can catch local busses easily and visit the beautiful Adelaide Hills and the city of Adelaide.

  • Accommodation


    We have beautiful private accommodation for you – a self-contained 1 bedroom cottage on our block which could suit up to 2 helpers (More if you are all travelling together and don't mind a fold out bed in the cottage lounge room). It has its own bathroom, kitchen and garden, so you get lots of space. I am happy to provide food for you to prepare yourselves and when I am home, can cook and share a meal with you.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are flexible with work hours. Helpers often do more work early in the week so they can have days off and explore the region. We have local busses that go to the city, Hahndorf and Strathalbyn. If you have a car, Victor Harbour is about a 45 minute drive and has beautiful beaches and scenery.
