    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I can help you with your English and reach you about native plants and bush regeneration. I will take you bush walking on the property or in nearby National Parks and to local markets.

  • Help


    Bush regeneration, general gardening chores and house maintenance. Sometimes other projects as required. Also help out in the kitchen preparing and sharing meals.

    Prefer mature independent people - couple or two friends as sometimes you will work alone. You will also need to amuse yourselves in your spare time as I have other commitments.

    Please have long pants, long sleeve shirt and hat for working outside. I will provide rubber boots, gloves and other safety equipment as required.

  • Accommodation


    NB: Cabin needs a major clean as no-one's been in for a while and it had some minor flooding. That will be your first task. In the meantime accommodation will be in a comfortable tent, (or a camper van if you have one :)

    Separate accommodation in a spacious rustic cabin with kitchenette. Bush/compost toilet. Hot showers in the main house. Mostly vegetarian meals. Expect to see a range of wildlife including a range of birds, wallabies, reptiles, insects and spiders.
