  • Description


    HI friends, I'm Alice (27) I am looking for some volunteers to help me with Painting, Gardening and General Maintenance, fixing up my parents house. My family are moving back into the house in the new year 2019, so we would love some extra hands before then.

    The house is located in a little town called Goolwa, in the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula, in south Australia. We have easy access to the lake for kayaking and sailing, the Beach for surfing and swimming in hot Australian summers. There is plenty of opportunity's for sight seeing on time off around the local area and I'm happy to drop you off at popular tourist spots. Victor Harbor is 20 minutes away and is a small city, popular for tourist in summer months and is one of the best places for good cafés, restaurants and shopping.

    I have been traveling off and on for the last 5 years and have visited some very amazing places, I came across workaway last year and stayed with 3 host family's while I was living in the UK. I loved meeting lost of like minded people from around the world of all ages and helping host to get work sorted that without workers they normally wouldn't be able to. I am looking forward to meeting new people and hoping to make your stay full of wonderful memories and friends.
