  • Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We've hosted 11 au pairs from all over the world, over the last 10 years while we've had pre-school children. We've loved hosting them, and giving them a taste of life on a kiwi farm. Now our kids are all at school, we'd love to continue hosting travellers, sharing our lives with them and getting to know more about our world.

  • Help


    We are keen to host travellers for a cultural exchange, in which you could help out around our home with the kids, the gardens or general help, and stay with us for a week or so - the list seems pretty endless!

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Mt Taranaki is a beautiful place! You can climb it in the summer and ski there in the winter. The mountain is only 20 minutes drive from our farm. The beautiful surf beaches are also not far away. We imagine Workawayers would have lots of fun exploring our surroundings while they are with us. Ideally, you'll have your own transport as public transport is very limited in the country. There is an intercity bus stop in Eltham if needed, a five minute drive away.
