    Description

    Hi there- Laura and Kev here- Want a true Auzzie adventure? We'd love for you to come and experience farm life on our small family farm. (Cropping,sheep, a few cows, chickens, farm dog)
    We have the luxury of being 10 minutes from town, surrounded by many other lovely country towns and wineries and 2 hours from Melbourne. It’s a busy household with two young girls and Kev also starting a building business. We are both seasoned travelers and love hearing about different cultures, travel stories and learning a bit of the 'lingo'. Help with farm/building and keeping the house/kids under control would be greatly appreciated.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are situated on a family farm, 10 minutes from the local town (12,000 population). Surrounded by many other beautiful country towns, wineries etc. 2 hours from Melbourne. You can learn about Australian farm life- See kangaroos in the wild. We both have travelled around Australia and overseas so have an understanding of different cultures. Having also lived overseas (Germany), I (Laura) understand what it is like learning a new language and will help you practice your English.
