    We are looking for some assistance with a range of jobs including gardening/landscaping, general property maintenance and some small scale building projects. We would prefer people with building/outdoor experience or those that have the capacity to learn. The tasks we need assistance with is hard manual work such as chain sawing, fencing and carpentry so we need our volunteers to be physically capable and mentally committed. The work can be hard but the rewards are great as you will be surrounded by the most beautiful Australian countryside and living in first class accommodation.
