    Description

    My husband and I have 2 boys, a 6 yr old and a 4 yr old and we are on a 175,000 acre sheep property which keeps us very busy. We also have a lot of working dogs, some puppys and some chickens. We are 1 hour from Balranald, NSW and 2 hours from Mildura or Swan Hill in Victoria. We would love to have some assistance with building a pizza oven, painting some of the house, building a veggie garden and also some sheep work. I teach our children from home via Broken hill School of the Air so there is always an opportunity to help with teaching my kids, I would love to have them experience people who are being adventurous and who might also teach them about different countries and cultures. There are lots of opportunities to learn about sheep farming, motorbike riding and see a different part of Australia without being too far from a big regional center. We look forward to hearing from you!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers will learn about constructing things from recycled materials as well as learn about a typical Aussie farming family and of course there is plenty of opportunity to learn about sheep!

    Help

    We would like someone to help us with general jobs around the house, we have plans to construct a pizza oven, a pig run and a veggie garden on our place, we also are intending to paint the outside of part of our house, but we have lots of sheep work if you are more interested in that. I teach my children via Broken Hill School of the Air (Distance Education or Homeschooling) so any assistance with teaching the kids especially to learn about different countries and cultures and any language lessons for them would be great.
