  • Description


    Private, self-contained accomodation separate to main homestead, perfect for singles, 2 x friends or couples. 3 x main meals & accomodation in exchange for 5hrs work per day, 5 days per week. Work involves gardening/weeding, cleaning, maintenance, special projects, help around the house/property & playing with our 3 x kids & 3 x dogs.
    15 minutes drive to nearest town & gorgeous beaches. Farm & surrounds is home to kangaroos, wallabies, frogs, birds, lizards & various other wildlife. Farm is NOT within walking distance to town. This is part of the appeal ... we’re in a beautiful, peaceful, bush location. Travellers without a car must be content to spend their relaxation time on the farm. WiFi is only available at the main homestead. TV/DVD in your room. Kitchen/fridge/stove/microwave in your room. Washing machine available free of charge.
    Applicants must have a reasonable level of English. Must enjoy children & dogs. Regret we cannot accomodate vegan/celiac diets. Stays of TWO WEEKS offered. Please, please please do not apply if you’re not willing to leave the place the way you found it (ie: thoroughly clean your accomodation before you leave & respect our property). Thank you for considering us as your Hosts! :) Note: all our accomodation is NO SMOKING 🚭

  • Accommodation


    Self-contained accomodation with own kitchen & bathroom. Washing machine available free of charge. Provisions given for breakfast & lunch (make yourself at your leisure). Join us at main homestead for a home-cooked dinner most evenings. Help is appreciated during evening meal preparation times to entertain our 3 boys (ages 6, 11 & 13yrs), and to assist with clearing up after dinner.
    Regret we can’t accomodate vegan/celiac diets. Sorry! Wi-Fi is available at the main house only (No wifi in your accomodation, sorry). Note that the main house is located 5 mins UPHILL from the worker accomodation. You will need to be ok to walk up that hill each day to get to our house. The property itself is also quite hilly & quite spread out so a reasonable level of fitness is required.
