    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are easy to get along with and enjoy chatting with visitors about their home and travel experiences, and to assist them with their adventures in Australia.
    Our workaway experience offers the benefit of privacy and independence - having separate accomodation/bathroom/kitchen and a very comfortable quiet space away from hostels, camping or living in amongst a host family.

  • Help


    Most of the help relates to outside the home in weeding, spraying, gathering up leaves, tidying & organising areas, washing pathways, etc.
    We will require your help 4 hours per day 5 days per week, with Sat & Sun off.

    We do not ask you to do anything we ourselves have not done, so if you are enthusiastic and have a happy, positive can-do attitude we would love to hear from you.

    Upon your arrival, we can collect you from one of our local train stations, Gosford or Woy Woy.

    Bicycles are available for you to easily get around with only 4kms to Avoca Beach which also has cafes, restaurants, post office, a few specialty shops and a cinema.

    We are close to public transport and will help you become familiar with the local bus & train timetables.

    We have a golden retriever dog who loves to meet new people.

    We enjoy meeting people from other countries and sharing experiences.
