    Description

    Hi, I'm Nick.

    I'm looking for Workawayers up until approximately January 2020.

    I live in a beautiful rainforest about an hour from Melbourne Victoria. If you enjoy peace, tranquility, the great outdoors with a little bit of luxury, and you are prepared to roll your sleeves up and do some work then I would be happy to have you join me.

    I have four lovely dogs, chickens and sometimes my horse stays too, living with me on about 5 acres.

    My house, which was originally set up as a bed and breakfast has two dedicated bedrooms for workaway guests - both with private bathroom and doors to balcony where you can hear the creek run by.

    I live a relaxed existence and appreciate the help I get from workaway guests. Lots of jobs to do this summer including moving a shed, building a retaining wall, updating the veggie patch and general garden work. There is also some work to do inside including painting.

    I will be spending some time away during November and need someone to look after my dogs from approximately 11-26 November so if you would like a private oasis to yourself for a couple of weeks please say hi.

    Enjoy your day.

    Nick

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    My place is very private and set amongst 150ft tall gum trees and massive ferns, there are two streams running through the property. If you love nature and being outdoors this is a great place for you.

    I am well travelled and very open minded. I don't care about your choice of spirituality or sexuality, or your cultural background. I do seek respectful and honest people though who are happy to get their hands dirty and enjoy working outside.

    I travel sometimes and can also work late so being able to enjoy both time socially with others and time alone is a bonus!
