  • Description


    We would like to offer some travellers the opportunity to help us and experience the culture of Australia.

    We have just taken over management of a large holiday park facility on the outskirts of Canberra. The property resides in Sutton, New South Wales. The property is a large holiday park that is nestled in a quiet bush setting with an abundance of wildlife on the NSW/ACT border, 10 minutes from the centre of Canberra and the national institutions and attractions. While you are here you will see many kangaroos and rabbits running around the property.

    We also own a small resort on the Sapphire Coast at Merimbula, 3 hours from Canberra, We offer our helpers the opportunity to spend time at both our properties and will arrange transport between Canberra and Merimbula.

    We will provide you shared accommodation, free Wi-Fi and a basic selection of ingredients for meals. You will have use of our kitchen and have the opportunity to meet fellow adventurers from around the world, swap stories and experiences and help us out along the way.

    Please be aware that there is no public transport options to our location. If you do not have a vehicle there are taxi services available. Occasionally we offer pick up and drop off on departure but this is not always available.

    We also have work opportunities available in our food and beverage department.

    Interested in joining us and experiencing Canberra and the Sapphire Coast?
