We have a small hobby farm just 5kms outside the town of Deloraine in the north of Tassie.
The house, a large 4 bedroom house, is too big for two people, so we love having people come visit. Our cats also love the extra attention of our guests.
We are slowly establishing the farm, working to make it more productive with chooks, goats, bees and vegetable gardens as well as trying to keep some scrub weed free for the native animals.
We are also working on a mountain bike track on our property in our spare time :)
We regularly have wallabies, possums, and echidnas on the property as well regular fly overs by wedge tail eagles.
Myself and Pete both work part time with varied shifts throughout the week. There will be lots of free time on the property to relax or to explore Tassie.
Own transport is useful however we can easily provide lifts into Deloraine and have 2 spare push bikes (basic mtn bikes) for those wishing to explore on two wheels.
Maximum stay is two weeks (longer may be negotiated)

Experience the quiet life in rural Tasmania and learn basic farm skills
We are slowly establishing our farm, currently working on possum proofing vegetable garden beds, fencing for goats and poultry, and weed control.
We are offering a home stay arrangement with meals in exchange for some assistance with gardening, weeding, landscaping, fencing, and general maintenance work.
If people have the desire, we also have a shipping container that we would like decorated and are building a small mountain bike track at the back of our property :)
