  • Description


    Hi !!

    (We currently booked until the end of the year .. sorry !)

    We have a beautiful hobby farm just two hours north of Sydney. We have a long list of awesome farm animals (including horses) that need looking after and there is always lot's of farm jobs happening. My wife and I are a semi retired, quiet couple and love meeting people (particularly fellow travelers) as we have been regular travelers into Asia and New Zealand. We love our music, (particularly the guitar), family times, spiritualism and all our furry and feathered friends!!

    We are happy to help with your English if needed or give you the space you need to chill and enjoy yourself and show you the beaches, vineyards and forests of the area. If you love animals, are physically fit and enjoy working outside, I think you will have a great time with us.

    We have a small 40 acre permaculture farm Just under two hours north of Sydney (close to the train station). We are a quiet semi retired couple (but young at heart!) that need a hand with various farm chores and managing our horses, cows, geese, pigs, ducks, chickens and bees (two cats and dogs). We love our animals and have a range of farm tasks on offer ..

    There is some horse riding and training available in our new horse arena or bush trails, if this is of interest to you. We are ten minutes to the train station and can pick you up from there and are only 30 minutes from some beautiful beaches and pristine bush walks. Join us for nourishing meals, laughter and a balanced, healthy lifestyle. You will have your own private bedroom and bathroom and space to do your own thing.

    Practice your English, enjoy the surrounds and our Aussie lifestyle. We love the peace and quiet, listen to all types of music and immersing ourselves in the spiritual benefits of a simple farm life.

    having had some farm experience is really useful. I suggest you contact us .. so that we can talk to you about dates that work for you. We usually can be really flexible!

    If you are really fit and enjoy working in the open, we would love to hear from you and are confident you will have a great farm stay. Please read the feedback written!!
