We are looking for two farm helpers/Aupairs to start with us ASAP to help with farm and family duties.

Food and accommodation is provided. You have your own caravan outside the house to unpack your bags. The caravan has a double bed, fridge and two single beds, with outdoor seating. You will shower and toilet at the house in your own bathroom.
If you have your own car there are a few local pubs and towns to enjoy. You can explore the Koziosco National park, climb the highest mountain in Australia or visit nearby waterfalls.
