  • Description


    Hello, We live on a small farm in a beautiful area known as the Southern Highlands - halfway between Sydney and Canberra. We are a family of 5, with two children at University and one still in High School (with only one still living at home).

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    It is a beautiful part of the country with rolling green hills and many gorgeous villages and towns to explore nearby (and some beautiful waterfalls and walks).

    We love having guests from all around the world and would love you to come and stay. My son speaks mandarin and my daughter French, so it would be great for anyone wanting to converse and practice their English at the same time.

  • Help


    We are after people to help around the farm, with gardening or small building projects or in the household. There is always something to do.

    It would be great if you were able to help 4 hours a day Mon-Fri, with weekends free. We will provide food for you to make your own breakfast and lunch and in the evenings we can share a home-cooked dinner together (I love to cook!) and a glass or two of delicious local wine/beer.

    Our place is 1 and 1/2 hours South of Sydney and easily accessible by public transport. I am more than happy to pick you up from the local train station and there would also be an automatic vehicle you could use sometimes.
