  • Description


    We have a beautiful hobby farm just two hours north of Sydney. We have a long list of farm animals (including horses) that need looking after and there is always lot's of farm jobs happening. My wife and I are semi retired and love meeting people (particularly fellow travellers) as we regularly travel into Asia and are always up for new experiences.
    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 recently bought a 40 acre permaculture farm Just under two hours north of Sydney. 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 two dogs). We love our animals and have a range of farm tasks on offer ..

    There is some horse riding available in our new horse arena or bush trails if you are interested. We are only 30 minutes from some beautiful beaches and pristine bush walks. Join us for health, nourishing meals. You will have your own private bedroom and bathroom.

    Practice your English, enjoy the surrounds and our Aussie lifestyle. We love the quiet and spiritual benefits of a simple farm life.

    Unfortunately, we are booked until late April 2020. But May is free!

    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!
