We are a couple living on a 26 acre farm set in beautiful rolling green countryside in West Gippsland, Victoria, approximately 1.5 hours from Melbourne. We offer fully self contained accommodation, suitable for a couple. in a comfortable, attractive mudbrick barn. We have a 6 acre garden including roses, vegetables, herbs, fruit trees and a small vineyard. On occasions we open the garden to the public and we are looking for a couple who have some knowledge of gardening. the remainder of the land is used to farm beef cattle. We are situated 3 km from a small village which has facilities such as cafe, bakery, supermarket and hotel and a 20 minute drive to a bigger town which has a railway connection to Melbourne.
The area offers natural beauty, bushwalking and a vibrant artistic community.
Workawayers will experience country living in a natural environment with well travelled hosts who welcome you to share in their pleasant Australian way of life. Workawayers will benefit from working with a qualified horticulturist in an expansive garden.
We will enjoy sharing our love of good food with our guests and learning about their culture.
