  • Description


    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.

    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.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    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.
