    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are lucky enough to be located at the foot of the beautiful Dandenong Ranges. There are many walking trails through state & national parks and lovely gardens that we visit regularly. We also have many wineries, boutiques, art & craft galleries, farm gates and markets dotted throughout the mountains. We like to spend a lot of time outdoors. The house needs work but I can promise a delightful homestay with peace-loving and friendly people.

    Hi beautiful people, we just got bitten by the travel bug. We need an assistant (please ask to see the video). Essentially looking for people to assist with a lot of different tasks packing up and then unpacking the gear at new locations, running errands, cooking and cleaning, tending to the animals, basic gardening, general household maintenance. Be prepared to be a part of the photos, as you can see from our profile we love all things gothic and architecture :) Approximately 10-15xhours per week. You will need money for your own personal costs, airfares and other ticketing costs. We hope to grow vegetables and have cleared the beds but need help preparing and planting them. If you know about plant propagation that would be handy as well. We have an unused pool that we'd like to get up and running for summer. The kitchen and bathroom need painting. I'm hoping to create a meditation garden in the far corner of the yard. Our Spanish-style home is old but very zen and homely therefore it is a smoke, drug and alcohol-free zone (drinking wine in moderation with dinner is okay). Only positive vibes please!
