We are a non-smoking family of 5 - Mum, Dad and 3 teenage boys who go away to boarding school. We also have three dogs, one cat, some poultry and free ranging wildlife. We have a 6,500acre cropping property one hour north of Goondiwindi. We are happy to have couples, singles and mates. Work will vary depending on season & weather.

Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Some general experience on a farm would be helpful as would someone with welding/mechanical/building skills. A drivers licence would be handy. Cooking is optional. I am happy for anyone to take over my kitchen at any time. In times when the weather does not permit farming work, I have a garden with no garden beds and some out houses that require attention.
Separate cottage, two bedrooms - 2 singles and 2 queen, one bathroom, two toilets, laundry, air-conditioned kitchen, dining and living room. Patio & carport outside It is fully self-contained with TV/DVD. We are a meat eating family however vegetarians etc are welcome.
We are 3hrs south west of Brisbane and half way between Millmerran & Goondiwindi with 1hr drive either way. We shop mainly in Goondiwindi and will be happy to take visitors to town when we go to do their own shopping or go to a movie etc. In their time off, volunteers are welcome to use the inground pool, go exploring as we live on the border of state forestry. There is a buggy/motor bikes available for volunteer use, on farm only.
