    We live on a magnificent property, in a tiny village, (Maydena) surrounded by World Heritage Wilderness Areas and National Parks. As we are 76km from Hobart, you will need your own car.

    The buildings are old and run down, and we are looking for help with building, gardening, painting, cleaning, the list is endless. Any skills to especially gardening, building or carpentry would be appreciated however, we are happy to work with you all you need is lots of enthusiasm
