  • Description


    We are a family of 3, my parents and myself. We live on 34 acres completely off the grid living, 25 mins drive from Newcastle, NSW, 45 min drive to Port Stephens and 2 1/2hr train ride to Sydney. Nearest train station is 10 min drive.
    Hunter Valley vineyards is 35mins drive.
    Newcastle has beautiful beaches. If you do not have a car we can drop you at the train station so you can go wherever you like.
    We live next to a National Park if you like the bush and hiking, we also have a pool to chilli out on hot days.
    We have 5 cows and 4 dogs. We are needing help around the garden and property. Would be a bonus if you are Spanish speaking for language exchange.
