  • Description


    We are located in the picturesque Chapman Valley situated approx 22 km north east from the Geraldton town centre or 436km from close to the coast. The closest shops are 15km from our house. Ideally you need to have your own car as this allows you freedom to travel around in the area.

    We have a wonderful climate here and amazing views. Not as cold as Perth!
    Ideally, we would like a minimum of a 3 day stay with us, longer if we mutually agree.
    Our property is set on 120 acres we have a friendly dog and 50 merino sheep.

    There is always something to do, but not the same each day.
    We ideally need help around the property with some projects in the garden, planning and planting some new garden beds, reticulation repairs, mowing of lawns, walking dog, painting, fencing.

    It is essential for your own safety that you understand English and speak English and are willing and able to follow instructions and to carry them out to the best of your ability.

    We need people who are reliable, self-motivated, enthusiastic and have a good sense of humor :)

    We don't ask anything of helpers that we wouldn't be prepared to do ourselves.

    We are not in a position to offer you any paid work. SORRY WE CANNOT SIGN OFF ON 2nd YEAR VISAS as our property does not qualify for this.

    We do not smoke, and do not allow smoking in the house.
