    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    A genuine outback experience with a warm and friendly family. We've had visitors from Germany, Denmark, Italy, USA & the UK. We work hard, and are willing to share our lifestyle and our home with anyone who shares our work ethic.

  • Help


    Work includes gardening, construction, concreting, stock work & general duties around the homestead like painting and shifting furniture. I may also require help with watching the children (don't worry - I don't expect you to have them 24/7) and some help around the house during school terms is great too - as I teach both children through Alice Springs School of the Air. If you have a special skill I might ask you to share it with my children as an educational opportunity for them.
    Anyone with any practical skills or a trade would be highly valued. The work will be physical, demanding and in a very remote area.

    Couples who are willing to cook & clean for themselves, in addition to carrying out other duties are welcome.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We are in a very remote area and you need to be really sure you want to come here before you leave civilisation. Interested visitors are encouraged to ask any questions they might have. I have 3 children aged 11, 6 & 18 months. I teach both older children through school of the air, I volunteer as an ambulance officer and am on several community-based committees. Volunteering is a way of life to use and expect our visitors to come along and help too. If this sounds like something that you will find difficult to cope with, it would be best if you didn't visit.
