    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers mostly learn about themselves and a huge self awareness occurs. Confidence is gained as well as knowledge on many levels. Animal care and management will be enhanced. Australia is a wonderful place to be, but it is not for those who are delicate.

    People who love animals and are very experienced with large horses. Attention to detail and clean, very tidy, enthusiastic, active and driven type volunteers would suit. Easy going personalities that like to do things.
    Riders need to be trained and experienced to manage performance horses. Non riders need to love animals and be exceptionally tidy, clean and organised.

    The volunteers ideally will be attracted to property living; peace and tranquility, nearest shops are 30 mins away. This is a remote property for those who love the nature.

    Volunteers would need to be fit, strong but not heavy handed.

    There are a variety of things to do whilst staying, including riding a quad bike, ride on mower, using some garden equipment and general cleaning of relatively already clean house.

    Volunteers are welcome to use the amenities but must clean up very well after themselves.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Volunteers should have insurance. They need warm clothing in the Autumn and Winter months and light clothing for summer as well as boots or safety foot ware.

    There is lots to do in this area and it is also easy to get to and from the city from where we are. We will happily take you to the Polo events as we are members, Working Equitation events and competitions, also sight seeing, there are bush walks, there are old towns to see, cafe's and of course social life and enjoying visitors that come to our Farm.

    At the Farm, you can enjoy the bird life, the walks, trekking, riding, and just simple relaxing. Great opportunity for photography. There is always something happening, so it is never boring here, there are also opportunities to relax and enjoy the beauty of the place as well. There are lots of projects which can often be a great deal of fun to establish.
    We have 2 small Maltese dogs in the house as well as a cat who lives with the horses.
