We are a busy family of five with three children aged between13 and 6. Rachael (Mum) works full time and Alex (dad) is studying and working part time. Next term we will all be working/ schooling from home. We live between the beautiful small country town of Tallangatta on the edge of Lake Hume and Mt Alfred farm ( Rachael’s parents). It’s great to explore the area. We love circus, good healthy food and life in general and would really like to welcome travellers into our lives and community. We have bikes you can use to explore the high country rail trail and a car you can use to go exploring this beautiful area we live in.

We can provide you with English practice, take you to visit Rachael’s parents. You can learn about social enterprise and crowdfunding from Rachael.
We have 2 projects on the go right now. A house extension (self build) in Tallangatta, the fit out of a bus that will provide vulnerable families with holiday accomodation or alternatively just free up our time by helping with the kids, cooking, gardening or even travelling around documenting sites with photo and video for the bus to stay in across the region.
We currently have a spare room in the house or in the summer you can choose to stay in a tent on our verandah. Either way you’ll be comfortable and looked after like one of the family. We can accomodate couples or one single at a time. You will share a bathroom and kitchen with us, we like to eat as a family. We can take care of food costs. Most of our food is gluten free, breakfast and lunch is make your own as we are out and about from 9-5 on weekdays. We ask that you do either morning jobs or afternoon during the week and spend more time working with us on the weekends and the rest of the time is yours.
There’s no public transport, the closest city is 30 minutes by car, loads to see and do and we can help you out with transport if you need it
