Centrally located with 5 mins drive from the quaint village of Clunes, 15mins to lismore and 30 mins to Byron. Just a short 5 minute drive from the stunning rainforests around "Minyon Falls", Rocky Creek Dam & Whian Whian falls. Every 2nd Sunday there is the famous Channon craft market just a 10min drive from where we are.
Our property gets regular visits from koala's and Wallabies, Goannas and Echidna's as well as an array of birdlife.
We have 2 gorgeous dogs, a cat, chickens and three piglets.
We are interested to meet and assist travelling couples (or 2 friends) in exchange for assistance with property maintenance, painting, gardening, weeding and veggie gardening, cleaning, and a few small building projects if the skills are there etc.
At this stage we are looking for couples (or 2 friends) who are are 24 years old or older.
Usually we ask for 4 genuine hours per day / 5 days week or 20 hours/week - it can be spread out over the week in whatever way suits YOU!
In return we offer you accomodation in a 6 berth caravan with access to seperate toilet and shower facilities. The caravan has a fridge and cooking facilities, a double bed and 4 single beds. dinner will be included daily.
Free WIFI access.
Oh: We are a Non-Smoking Household...
Also: we can ONLY accept people who have their own travel-(including medical) insurance!
And: it really would be best if you have your own car as there is little public transport around here.
Look forward to meeting you!
