  • Description

    Description

    We are a small vineyard and winery about an hour north of Melbourne, Workawayers are required to help with the day to day running of the house, gardens, vegetable garden, mowing lawns, some painting and general maintenance. We are a family of four, two daughters who are currently travelling overseas, we have a keen interest in food and wine, of course. Our property is situated close to a National Park. We have large Wolfhound cross dog who is very friendly.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    As we have limited internet service available we cannot offer unlimited access to the internet, some internet time would be available.
    As we are a working farm and we have a large dam (lake) in front of our house, we feel that our property is unsafe for children.
    As we already have dogs we cannot allow other pets on our property.
    We would normally host for a maximum of two to three weeks.
    We often have several workawayers at the same time, you will have your own bedroom but will share the bathroom.

    There is no direct public transport available, so having your own transport is preferable but not essential as we can arrange to meet you in Yarra Glen, a small town 30 minutes drive from our farm, from Melbourne you catch a train to Lilydale then a bus to Yarra Glen.

    Philip is a keen cook and it is expected that we sit down together for an evening meal, breakfast and lunch times would depend on the work schedule but more often than not these too would be shared.
    We are surrounded by National Parks so if you are a keen walker then there are lots of interesting walks around this area.
