  • Description

    Description

    We are living and working on a 60 acre vineyard with a large wine making facility, cellar door and restaurant that seats up to 90 people, on the property. We require help mostly around our own home and garden rather than the restaurant or the vineyard as it has a full time staff.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are both well travelled Australian businessmen who are now retired with our focus being travel, garden, cultuer, art, politics and dogs. We usually find we can have interesting conversations with travellers sharing knowledge and experience of each country and the culture. We have many kangaroos on the property and our business partners also live on the property, so there are plenty of people to talk to and learn from all the time. We travel to Sydney regularly.

    The primary purpose of our help is to assist with household chores such as cooking, cleaning, gardening and taking our dogs Bertram (6yrs) and Miss ellen (2yrs) for walks, or dog sitting while we are away for the day. We will adapt the jobs to your skills and interests as there is always plenty to do. We have bikes and happy to be tourist guides for Canberra.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    We have a bedroom at the rear of our garage which has its own bathroom, laundry and a king bed. It is next door to the house. While we are open to two people coming it is not ideal in terms of the accommodation available. The room has many books including many about Australia. Food will be shared in the house and cooking shared. We can cater to dietary requirements such as vegan or vegetarian.

    What else ...

    We are fifteen minutes from the Canberra Airport, fifteen minutes from Bungendore and Queanbeyan, and 30 minutes from the centre of Canberra and all it has to offer. We are happy to drop helpers off in Canberra for the day and pick you up.
