Hi we are a married couple living on a small farm on the banks of the South arm of the Clarence River, in northern NSW. We have a small herd of sheep on our property and a few chickens (no cats or dogs). We always need help with the day to day running of the farm , anything from lawn mowing, gardening, fencing, as well as domestic chores, cleaning etc. Swimming fishing boating is available for relaxation in the warmer months. Surfing beaches are about 40 minutes away, Yamba, Brooms Head Angourie, to name a few. We are 25 minutes from Grafton railway station, easily reached from Sydney or Brisbane.

Help around the house
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We have a wide circle of friends who have different backgrounds and different interests. We encourage typically Aussie activities such as BBQs, swimming, fishing, surfing etc. as well as rural living.
We can always use a painter or two and being a renovator is an advantage! If you are willing to be flexible with how to contribute to the running of the property, including manual unskilled help you will always be welcome here!
Either within our house in a private room or in a self contained appartment. Cooking facilities are available and we enjoy food from around the world! Sharing the cooking is one of the joys of sharing the home.
Having your own vehicle is an advantage as there are many sights to see and things to do from white water and hiking in the mountains to beaches and river activities. Local buses are nearby to travel between major centres. We are fairly casual and social.
Limited internet access
We have pets
