  • Description


    We live on 45 acres in the beautiful Yarra Valley in a small town called The Patch, surrounded by nature, we do live close to town and all main facilities, banks, restaurants, pubs, shopping etc...

    We are looking for visitors that are social and know how to have an adult conversation, silence is deafening, so come and make a little noise and join in on some Aussie banter, we are strictly NO SMOKING property , manners, respect and kindness will get you further here, meaning you will get more from your stay.
    We have a push bike here for you to use if needed and we usually visit town most days.

    The Australian farm life is as it would be in most places of in the world. but most people who come into our little world here just love it.

    I would love to hear about your life and culture and I may be even be able to teach you thing or two about Australia.

    gardening, painting, handy person to fix things, mow lawns, lay mulch are a few jobs that we are working on at this time.
    We also work with the animals everyday.

    THIS IS NOT A HORSE RIDING HOLIDAY, so please don"t expect a ride, if you are offered its a privileged, it's all about the care and daily needs of our rescue horses.
    If you are a rider with good experience (A REAL RIDER) with young stock we can give you riding jobs as we are also looking for a groom/rider to work horses and travel with them when we go to new places to work them, it's hard work but worth the experience.
    At this time of year we camp with our horse and I have a trip coming up very soon and would love to find and take Raider with me for. 10 days in the Mansfield high country for our young stock adventure camp.( for an experienced rider only).

    I am sad that I have to state this but House-keeping, cooking and cleaning up is not included in your hours, cooking and cleaning is daily.
    You will need to use the house to share with me and the dogs.
    There is a guest room or a caravan if you wish you can live in the tent, there are many options.

    I look forward to chatting with you further.
