    Description

    Come and stay a while on a farm on the outskirts of Australia's capital city. Only 2 and a half hours drive to Sydney, about the same distance to unspoiled beaches and the ski fields of the Snowy Mountains. We run cattle on our farm and have horses, dogs, chickens and a pet lamb. We have a large family of six children but four no longer live at home; they are studying at university and travelling. One of our sons was a workaway volunteeer on a pig farm in Bulgaria! Our house is large and rambling, and we are keen to use the Workaway scheme to expand our horizons and learn more about other countries and other cultures.
