  • Description

    Description

    We invite you to join us to experience farm life, have fun and enjoy our part of Western Australia.

    This is an opportunity for you to be part of an Australian family while sharing your skills and knowledge of your culture with us.

    Situated in south east Western Australia (near Esperance), our family runs a mixed cropping and sheep farm. At this time of year, we are finishing planting crops and looking after our sheep and lambs.

    We are a family who enjoy playing sport, eating healthily (most of the time), having picnics by the river, horse riding, traveling overseas, meeting new people and catching up with friends.

    If you would like to visit us then feel free to contact us. We look forward to being part of your itinerary.
