  • Description

    Description

    We are a welcoming family living on a semi-rural property in beautiful Western Australia, only 30 mins to the city of Perth. 1 hour to Fremantle and beaches. We prefer couples. We live on 1 and a half acres in Helena Valley, backing onto a river with the bush on two sides, if you'd like to explore the wilder side of Australia. Nearby are wild kangaroos and beautiful sunset spots, which we are more than happy to introduce you to! We would like help with gardening and general house. We need some wood retaining walls built, lots of native plants planted. We also have 2 very lovable dogs. Local buses and trains are not far and we are happy to drop you off at a convenient location. If you have any sandbag building experience, we would love to hear it. We would love to build an ego bunker to protect us from the fire season and use as a hideout for the children with tunnels.
