  • Description


    Me, my partner Tracey and our daughter Sammy live on the banks of Lake Hume just outside of Albury NSW on the Murray River. We've got a family business in Town, but also have 16 acres of rural living with an established 3 acre vineyard. Especially in springtime this place needs a lot of maintenance done, so we're looking for a couple of people to give us a hand to keep it look nice. We've got the most amazing view over the lake and get the best sunsets someone can imagine. We are 20km out of town, but travel daily to the centre, so there is always a lift available. There would be also a spare car if necessary.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    They can learn english, or german (I'm originally from Austria) and mainly how to work a vineyard and how to do wine making. Albury Wodonga is only 25km away and the snowfields like Falls Creek or Mt Hotham is only 1 1/2hrs drive. We are both pretty good cooks and love to spoil people with great food!
