My husband and I are retired on 10 acres and breed heritage poultry, grow herbs for our use and the animals and keep a few sheep. we also have a rescue cat named mungo and 5 year old labradoodle named Molly,
We have unlimited wifi and one double bedroom and so can have a single guest, or a couple. we are not smokers but do not mind if guests smoke out on the balcony
We do not take families as our home is not really a small child safe area.
At the moment we are re doing our vegetable garden to wicking beds to reduce our water usage and building a cattery that will give our beautiful boy an outside area at night and keep the birds safe as well
I am also happy to share my mosaic studio with visitors

a real grasp of australian humour, keen to help with learning english,, and australian customs.
As we are retired we try not to be too manic about getting things done. we work hard at times but also know how to relax and do not mind if visiters use our place as a base to explore central victoria. Some jobs are maintaining and feeding poultry, whipper snipping, the mundane. put the bins out, help with meals, help with dishes, no more than an hour of house work a day. and most of all respect , honesty and humour. we love to laugh.
We have one bedroom which was renovated about a year ago shared bathroom and shered meals.
there is a bus into town at 7. 50 each school day, and we are happy to drop visitors in town whenever we are going in. we deliver eggs every friday which takes about 3 hours and they are welcome to explore Bendigo during this time. or stay longer and get the bus back later.
