  • Description


    I live on a farm, have a variety of pets, love gardening and tennis, looking for someone or a couple who wants to enjoy my beautiful home and pets and treat them as though they are their own. I really enjoy having travellers staying to get a window on the world and help others enjoy Australia in the way so many people have helped me explore other countries. Ideally Workawayers will have their own car as we are 20 minutes from nearest town and no public transport - but happy to discuss work-arounds if you don't have your own transport.

    Note this is not a farmwork job - I have skilled people for the farm business and workawayers won't be doing this. I am only looking for help in my private home and it is a family garden not a market garden. Ideally looking for workawayers who are comfortable with horses so you can help with feeding/grooming/rugging my 3 horses.

    I work from home there is wifi but its usually very slow - there is 5g tower available for mobile hotspot which normally works best so I would recommend that if you're needing to work remotely a lot.
