    Good Host
  • Description


    We have a beautiful 100 acre property, about 15 minutes drive from the spa town of Daylesford, with amazing views over the Wombat State forest. We bought the land 5 years ago and built the current house. We are working to establish a 4 acre garden which involves a lot of propagating/and planting, building paths, small building projects and general maintenance - that is what we are looking to have someone assist us with.

Our properties location gives easy access to a range of activities, including bush walking, hiking, horse-riding, swimming and gold prospecting. We are 1 hour by train from Melbourne, 30 minutes drive to the historic gold-fields of Ballarat and 15 minutes from the beautiful spa town of Daylesford.

    The region we live in is a very popular tourist destination. It has great restaurants, bars, spas, museums, music venues, and access to beautiful Australian countryside.
