  • Description


    Our property is located 4hrs north of Sydney - 1hr west of Taree/1hr north of Gloucester, in the beautiful upper Manning Valley, NSW. English & FRENCH spoken - so FRENCH helpers are very welcome!

    Volunteers must have a good understanding of English if you do not speak French.

    Our property primarily operates as a tourism facility for CAMPING and we also breed cattle. We have much-loved dogs, cats & horses. Check out our website to see the camping!

    We need only motivated, pro-active helpers who are aged around 23 YEARS minimum who can use their own INITIATIVE to tasks - we need helpers who are physically able & are prepared to get their hands dirty! We are honest & respectful to our helpers & expect the same in return. A good SENSE OF HUMOUR too please is definitely important!

    Help us by telling us about you - whether you have travelled & where, what work you have done in your own country, where you come from within your country and what general skills you may have

    We are really easy going........however if you contact us & we respond to you - we expect you to have the courtesy to let us know YES or NO please, as soon as possible.

    We are happy to pick up/drop off volunteers Monday - Friday from train station at Wingham around 12 noon or from the airport at Taree (weekends are not possible).

    Your own vehicle is a bonus as there is no local public transport - but is certainly not a requirement. Helpers arriving with own transport can arrive any day of the week, subject to suitability. Our property is not close to shops or town & we do not get mobile phone reception here.

    SMOKERS ARE WELCOME - outside accommodation only.

    1-2 week stay is negotiable.
