We are Dave (Uncle Dave) & Nikki (Aunty Nikki) and we have an Adventure Farm stay in the center of the South Island of NZ.
We take guests regularly on 'Lord of The Rings trips' and mountain treks or visits to Tekapo/Mount John star Observatory
and occasionally to Aoraki/Mount Cook National conservation park , esp June - Nov.
We always seem to need a hand with windows to clean, lawns to mow, gardening, painting, firewood gathering, weed control, farm fencing repairs and car grooming.
We find it works best for you to work a few full days, then we'll take a day or two off maybe show you around do some touring, sight seeing, bush walks, mountain treks and have some good fun.
We will provide all your food, fruit, drinks etc. free of charge and promise will look after you really well and give you lots of great tips and advice on the best FREE things to see and do in the South Island.

Who knows.... we may just have a place available for you.

p.s.From Christchurch or Dunedin cheapest/easiest way for you to get here is to "Standby" on an Atomic Shuttle bus to Winchester. Don't pre-book, Just stand at the bus stop (Museum or airport) and insist on the $20 standby fare two times (Twice). Shuttle buses leave Christchurch Museum/airport 8am daily.
