  • Description

    Description

    We would like some volunteers to help. If you're fit and strong and enjoy helping with gardening, housework and odd jobs around the place, we'd love to have you. We also enjoy workawayers who enjoy playing and looking after our young children (6-12) and who like to show us different parts of their culture - like cooking! We have had many workawayers before and they have been great. Couples most welcome. We are really easy going, and we just love, love, love meeting people from all of the world!
    Families - we have basic upstairs accommodation in our house for families with their own bathroom. Families would need to provide their own main meals or buy their portion if we are sharing meals, which we have done in the past and has worked well . Please contact us and we can work it out together!

    We would like some volunteers to help. If you're fit and strong and enjoy helping with gardening, some housework and odd jobs around the place, we'd love to have you. Mainly the work is gardening. We have had workawayers before and they have been great. Couples most welcome.
    We have a large house on our farm in the Barossa Valley, an hour from Adelaide. We are able to pick you up from a bus station or airport if you need. We have 7 children, 2 who are 20 and 22 and live in Adelaide, and 5 younger children aged 6-12. They love having workawayers around as you become part of our family!
    We are trying to get our house and garden clean, neat and tidy. There's lots of work to be done in and outside the house. It's not very hard work at all, but we have to keep on top of it. There's plenty of time for just hanging out, having a few drinks and visiting places in the beautiful Barossa Valley!
    Many of our workawayers choose to work longer hours in the day and then join us for family activities where we go out and do things together. We love workawayers that become part of our family. We'd prefer workawayers to stay for a week at least - we get very attached to you all and can't bear it when you leave us too soon! LOL! But of course, we understand that you're quite often on a short schedule, so let us know what you need and we'll see if we can work something out. We're really flexible!
    We look forward to meeting you - come and visit us soon!
