  • Description


    Come join a young fun group of individuals as we work together to fix up a house in Woodford, part of the Blue Mountains!

    The recent tenant has just moved out so we are taking advantage of this time to freshen up the house and surrounding property. There is the main house as well as a shed that we are looking to give some life to and flip into a tiny home that will be available for rent. Currently, our main priority is fixing up the gardens which includes weeding/clearing vegetation, planting and mulching.

    Who we are!?

    Will (25): The owner of the property, just finished school and is now working on many fun projects and travelling in between. Most of his time will be spent in Sydney but will be travelling to and from to come check out/ help out on the property.

    Marina (26): A Workaway from Canada who has become close friends with Will and his housemates while doing her first Workaway in Sydney and enjoyed it so much, decided to stay and help out on this project!

    I (Marina) will be staying on the property with whoever else decides to join me. The work will be about three hours a day in exchange for accommodation. It will be up to you to buy your own food but I am happy to make some meals together :)

    We are both fun, friendly, and creative people who love to be outdoors, go on adventures and surround ourselves with like minded people!

    Who we are looking for:

    We are looking for one or two other individuals who like to be out in the garden with nature. If you have a love for fixing up homes, reno and decor that's a bonus! :D

  • Help



    The Main House:
    Clean the house inside out and make it ready for the next new tenant

    Clearing vegetation, planting and mulching

    Cleaning shed inside out

  • Languages spoken

  • Accommodation


    You will have a room inside the main house (shared if there is more than one Workaway at a time). It will be super basic with just a mattress and bedding and a dresser. There is no Wi-fi but there is service. I recommend purchasing the 30GB for $30 from Telsta and you should be more than fine :)
