We're a 100 acre rural property in the Lower Hunter Valley about 90 mins north of Sydney. We have horses and have 2 kids (11 and 15), one cat and one dog. Its a fabulous rural area with very friendly locals. Lots of local wildlife around too. We're looking for extra pairs of hands to help for 10 days from 10th Oct to 21st Oct (roughly) including general household "stuff", possibly house sitting, cooking, helping with the children. Having your own car would be amazing. We can offer a relaxed stay with a lovely local area to explore.
We don’t produce anything at all and are not a “farm or homestead” /business

Projects involving children
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Looking for people who can potentially house sit while we travel and also join in with all our daily tasks including gardening, maintenance around the property, helping with the horses if you'd like, being company for the kids, cooking some evening meals. And always have various projects happening so experience in the following areas is not required but would be very welcome: carpentry, building, horse training, cooking, looking after the kids. Short term workaway's will often work best with our timing - 1 week to 3 weeks is usually easier to organise for us!
We have two bedrooms in a guest area with their own bathroom and living area which is separate to our main house. So we can take couples or two singles (we prefer to host two people at once). Its got aircon and fans and heating! And its own fridge, toaster, kettle. We also have a pool which is used every day in summer. Non-smokers only please.
What else ...
We are in quiet a rural area despite being so close to Sydney. If you have your own transport we are very close to the main Hunter Valley which has loads of things to do. Also close to central coast beaches. We are not on a public transport route.
