    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a family of 6, (4 sons, the youngest being 16) (they come and go!) who have always had backpackers and travellers come and stay. We love the exchanging of stories and recipes! This is a great place because it is big enough for everyone to have their own space when they need it, yet have company when they crave it. It is just about jumping in and being part of a first generation Australian family trying to do their best and be inclusive!

  • Help

    Help

    We have 320 acres.. There is always simple maintenance and tidying and beautification work that needs to be kept up to date. There are so many ways to contribute.
    In general... I ask people to help in a field that they enjoy as it makes everyone's time nicer.
    So if you love gardening.... then ok. Prefer handyman stuff? We can facilitate that. Fancy cooking up a storm? ok! Give us music lessons? We can work with that! Painting? excellent.

    There are small projects/jobs that just need doing, but I am really flexible, as long as it is fair.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    All meals provided... help yourself to breakfast and lunch, sit down meal with family each night.
    Everyone is expected to help clean up after dinner!!!!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    It is a truly beautiful area where we live. Volcanic craters, lakes, waterfalls, rivers, beaches, limestone caves, historical towns... simply gorgeous. The area where we are has over 240 of Australia's bird species frequent it... so if you are a Twitcher... this will really suit you. Access to world class mountain bike trails, walking tracks, caving adventures and so much more. But you do need your own car.
