    Description

    At the moment we are looking for keen and fit outdoor helpers as we are busy landscaping, bush clearing and preparing areas for winter vegetation burning.
    We have a large house on 17000 square meters of native bush. We are working on the house and clearing land. The volunteer work is mixed, with gardening, cleaning, decorating, bush clearing and creating pathways through the bush. We have plenty of wildlife around the property - wallabies, possums, bush turkeys, rabbits and lots of sulphur crested Cockatoos, rainbow lorikeets, king parrots and other colourful birds.
    We are new to beekeeping and currently manage two hives on our property 🐝 🐝🍯
    Our location is Bayview near Mona Vale in the beautiful Northern Beaches area of Sydney. The centre of Sydney is less than an hour by local bus from Mona Vale.

    We have hosted many homestay students and workawayers. We have always enjoyed our time spent with our overseas helpers. We have table tennis and table football, badminton and other games available.
    We are only a short trip to several surfing beaches and also the quiet waters of the Pittwater inlet, a great place for sailing, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding.

    We have unlimited internet.
    Average stay is about two weeks!
    We expect 20-25 hours work for one weeks food and accommodation.
    NON Smokers only please.

    Look forward to hearing from you with any questions you may have.
