  • Description


    We live on a beautiful farm in the Dandenong ranges, 45minutes drive from Melbourne, Australia. We love living here with our 9 month old son as well as the cows, sheep, chickens, fruit trees and vegetable gardens. The big farmhouse is nestled among a huge garden of all kinds of trees, plants, and a swimming pool! It is like living in a dream!
    We are a family of three with our 9 month old son, and both parents working from home as a photographer and a choreographer.
    This is a big house on a big property and it always feels more alive when there are more people living here.
    There is always plenty of time to enjoy the property and cool off in the pool on a hot day.

  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The best cultural experiences alway start with food! We both enjoy preparing and eating meals together and would love to welcome you to join us in the kitchen and around the table. We would also be interested to show you how we manage the property here and to get to know each other while we work. Though there will be times when we are both working on our profession or caring for our son and you may be working solo on some projects. We will always be available to assist you to get to a train station for trips to the near by City of Melbourne which is definitely worth visiting.

  • Help


    We would love to share our home with some interesting people who would be willing to help us maintain the property and our home. Some examples of the types of jobs we are doing at the moment are: Painting a small cottage on the property, fixing our cattle ramp, caring for the trees and plants in the garden, picking and preserving fruit in the orchard, preparing vegetable gardens, fixing irrigation, pruning trees, collecting fire wood for the winter, and a few odd jobs around the house.
