  • Description


    Live and work on a beautiful rural property, space, wildlife and a positive energetic family. We offer you many opportunities to explore the spectacular south west Victoria. You will see the Grampians National park, the southwest coast and many more interesting places and experience the great local produce. We are a family of 5 - Andrew and Michelle and 3 children, twin girls aged 8 that and a 4 yo girl. We live on a large rural property consisting of sheep, cattle, cropping and tree farming. Your experience with us will give you an insight into Australian rural life. Work will be varied, including stock work (sheep and cattle), fencing, gardening and general maintenance. Also helping getting the girls get ready for school and with their homework. After a busy day, relax on the deck overlooking the farm and enjoy a swim! We work hard on the farm but enjoy visiting the coast, fishing and surfing and hiking in the Grampians. We are very active and love running, mountain bike riding and going to the gym in the local town, all of which you can join in. Please visit for more photos of the farm. We are very flexible, come for a week or stay for a couple of months.
