We live in a beautiful part of South Australia; our property of 14 acres is nestled in the Adelaide Hills amongst the premier boutique wine region. We are a family of 4 but out 20 yr old daughter has moved to Adelaide this year to study. Our son is 15 and is an avid soccer player. We have 5 lazy horses, 3 dogs , chooks and goats. We have been WWOOF (Willing Workers on Organic Farms) hosts for 6 years, so we are used to bringing the world to us as we can't always get out there to travel! We have many wonderful friendships across the world with our young WWOOFers.
Help in the house
Helping with Tourists
We love to showcase the Adelaide Hills. We are located just out of Hahndorf, Australia's oldest German settlement town. There is a great deal of history in this area from the time South Australia was settled. We also just love to learn about their culture too. I try to speak French with my French guests which is always a bit of fun. Having been WWOOF hosts for some years we find that they just love being with an Australian family and being part of our daily life.
While we do not make a living off the land, I do run an bnb accommodation (we can share with you so you can see feedback about us!). So the help we need is just simply around the place. It might involve helping me in the bnb or grooming horses, weeding, painting etc. What I would love is anyone who would like to try their hand at dry stone walling and would love someone who is trained in chain saw use as there are always tree branches to cut up. If you are an experienced horse rider, then riding and caring for horses is way up there on the list of chores too!
We try to provide a variety of work, great food and wine too. Accommodation is in the bnb IF it is available but if not we have a room in the house. There are two double bedrooms. We like visits of a week to start with and then by negotiation and if our circumstances allow we can discuss visitors staying on.
Generally bedrooms within the main hours. If not, in our bnb.
We are walking distance to some of the most stunning wineries in Australia. We are only 2km out of the village of Hahndorf and there is a regular bus service into Adelaide city and beaches.
