We live in a rural part of the country, despite being only an hour by train to Melbourne, the best city in Australia. The lifestyle around here is glorious. Very relaxed, eating from the land, and caring for nature. We have traveled a lot ourselves, and love to talk about the world.
Lots of gardening needs to be done so I'd appreciate help with that. Weeding, pruning, collecting firewood. There are small jobs assisting our renovations, and the odd bit of kitchen fun, and playing with kiddos!
Beautiful large heritage room in our home, separate private bathroom to yourself. Plenty of living areas and verandahs for peaceful private times or joining in with the family.
We are only an hour away from Melbourne, and a short drive from the direct train line with plenty of trains into the city every day. Our local area has many beautiful towns with markets, shops and cafés, and lots of beautiful national parks and natural attractions. We have a lot of local birds and wildlife.
