  • Description


    Peter and Merry have a lovely block of land on the top of a hill with stunning 360 degree views. The help we need varies according to your preferences, it can be building maintenance, gardening or general farm work. We prefer people to help with competent English skills. If you have a sport you love you may join in with local sporting clubs (seasonal sports) while you are here, this is a very friendly community. There are lovely long bushwalking areas adjacent to our property and we have push bikes you may use to explore the area, Otherwise there is plenty to do. There is a creek to swim in during warm weather and if you have a car this is man from snowy river country. (See details below). Your happiness is important to us.
