    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Our farm is situated with the beautiful back drop of Mount Alexander, with rolling vineyards and soft hills dotted with livestock and bush land.
    The experience of working on a diverse and dynamic Australian farm will give a cultural insight to the unique Australian way of life.
    Host Garth and his family are warm, open and inviting. They have hosted many international travellers in the past and found the cultural exchange beneficial to everyone involved.
    Garth has ample knowledge to share in all aspects of farming, wine making, stone cottage construction, bee keeping, butchering and animal care. In return he is hoping to learn about his guests' culture and whatever knowledge they have to bring.
