  • Description

    Description

    We have a small beef farm in the Southwest of Western Australia. We have all sorts of little jobs to be done including housework, gardening, fencing, helping out with the cows hand feeding chickens and a couple of horses to ride. We also have a new extension on our house that we need to finish. We work hard but enjoy time off down at our beach cottage which overlooks the Southern Ocean when we can. Fishing, snorkelling, swimming, 4 wheel driving along the beach and beautiful walk trails, weather permitting of course. We will teach you new skills too. Good fresh farm food and good company. We love to chat. We have two daughters who also enjoy the cultural exchange.

    What else ...

    There are many walk and bicycle trails through the Forest around us. We are also close to lots of wineries. We do have some limited internet but a Telstra nextg dongle will work here if you have one. Only Telstra or Aldi mobile phones work here. There is no public transport but you can just come to town with me! It is pretty quiet where we live on the farm but very beautiful.
