Hi there- Laura and Kev here- Want a true Auzzie adventure? We'd love for you to come and experience 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.

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.
Building/Farm work- Help with keeping the house under control (cleaning,cooking, gardening, shopping) would be greatly appreciated. No fixed schedule- very flexible.
Option to be in new caravan or in family home until self contained cabin build completed. (Family home-brand new modern house built by Kev. You will have your own bedroom and bathroom and be sharing the family kitchen.)
In your time off you can explore the local area- go to local markets, wineries. Go hiking/bush walking. Catch a train to Melbourne for a city escape.
