    *️️️️️️️ You will need to have your own transport to get here

    Please read my profile in full before applying.

    Located in Whangarei, 2 hours north of Auckland, and a short drive from endless beaches, rivers, waterfalls just 20 minutes away from Whangarei CBD and about an hour from the Bay of Islands.
    It is a 3-acre lifestyle block with a small herd of Alpacas, friendly pet sheep, ducks and dogs, surrounded by native trees, fruit trees and landscaping shrubs.
    Two streams running through the property and two large ponds with waterfalls, ducks, frogs, fish and other water birds.
    The house is new and helpers will have their own private bedroom and bathroom.

    There is no bus service to the area so you will need your own transport to get here and to explore the area in your free time.

    Help needed with landscaping, weeding, house cleaning, spreading organic fertilizer, and other seasonal jobs.

    There are several options of work exchange that depend on how busy we get and how much work around. If things are quiet here you may be able to get away with 2 -3 hours of work a day which will give you plenty of time to explore the area.

    I have enough jobs and space available for one helper at a time, but if you are a couple traveling in self contained camper van, I may be able to host you for reduced working hours.

    Looking for mature people that are able to communicate well, have genuine interest in country life and want to learn about sustainability, leaving in harmony with wild life and domestic animals and want to learn about recycling nature's gifts while still maintaining modern life style.
    You will also need to be willing to leave feedback on this website after You leave.
