We are a small family looking for help in the garden and on the property in beautiful West Gippsland. My husband is a winemaker and I am looking to expand my vegetable garden. We live on a property with two small vineyards, three dogs, cats, chickens, ducks and geese. We practice organic principals with the hope of being certified in the future. The role would suit a couple however solo travellers are welcome to contact us too. We're two very easy going people who would love to meet travellers.
DIY and building projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are offering accommodation and food in exchange for your help. Dane and I are passionate about wine and food and we would love to share this with you too. We would like to show you how a small family can live off their land and we would also like to learn some of your culture too.
We are looking for help with garden clean up, spring planting and a few projects around the property. Roles in the garden will be helping to clean up for Spring, Spring and Summer planting and possibly putting in a new garden bed. Travellers do not need experience in these things, just a willingness to help and a decent level of fitness.
Small sleep out with shower, toilet and small kitchenette. There is also a small dwelling on the top of a hill on the property that is very beautiful and you are welcome to camp there. We will provide lunch daily and dinner in our home most evenings. However there may be some nights where we provide you ingredients and ask you to cook in your living area.
We are 10 minutes from the town of Warragul which has many shops and cafes. We are also an hour and fifteen minutes from Melbourne by car or about an hour on the train (which you can catch from Warragul). You don't necessarily need a car however it would probably be helpful if you wanted to explore the area. There are many beautiful places and towns to see in Gippsland, and the beach and the picturesque Wilsons Prom is only an hour/hour and a half drive.
