    Description

    Hi, we live on 200 acres in the Snowy Mountains, New South Wales, Australia and are looking to share this wonderful place with others.

    Our farm is filled with animals, both domesticated and native and is surrounded by bushland. Our family is keen to host visitors who wish to experience both the Australian bush as well as volunteer as a farmworker.

    We are not far from Canberra, the capital of Australia, the snowfields and the east coast and are part of the local village.

    Our farm includes a large herd of (mostly friendly) goats, a horse, alpacas, a cow, dogs, fish and chickens. We also have two pink and grey galahs that are part of our household. Native animals live in the natural environment including kangaroos, kookaburras and eagles, reptiles, wombats and possums.

    Help

    We are looking for someone who is keen to participate in activites to help out around the house and farm.

    This might involve feeding or handling the animals, rugging horses, walking the dogs or more active help such as assisting with building a new shed, picking rocks, or collecting firewood. Housing renovations, gardening and housework are also possible.

    Accommodation

    We can offer you your own room. Our house is large and comfortable and warm in winter.

    The farm offers you opportunities for bushwalks right at your doorstep and while we dont have public transport, we do travel to local towns and cities regularly.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Staying with us you will be living in the country and also able to explore the Australian Capital Territory as we also love being tourists in our area. With the snow fields and large freshwater lakes around 1 hour away, we are also happy to take you there (and perhaps squeeze in some fishing if that is your interest).

    We are volunteers ourselves in local activites including the local bush fire brigade and enjoy being part of a friendly community and local activities. We are active, social people who enjoy travelling ourselves and know what it takes to enjoy a holiday.
