    Description

    Welcome to Perth!
    We are an Equestrian property located 30km South of Perth CBD. Under 10 mins from Cockburn Train Station, 15 mins to the coast and 5 mins to local shops. Our family consists of my husband and I, our 2 children, plus our dog and my Dressage horses (+ kids pony). We are very proud of our lovely property and happy Animals!
    Accommodation in self contained apartment close by the main house with Wifi and air conditioning. Breakfast and lunch supplies will be provided for you to prepare as you wish. Dinner is a shared meal (mixed diet) cooked for you in the main house.
    Duties include weeding, cleaning stables, making compost, lawnmowing and general farm tidy up. Horse experience a bonus- but not essential. Looking for honest and motivated helpers who are keen to help keep our property as lovely as it can be. We also have a swimming pool and welcome you to part of our family while you stay with us. We have made some lovely lifelong friends from our guests on other websites, many of our helpers keep in touch and recommend us to their friends. Non smokers. Prefer 2- 3 weeks stay.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We enjoy hosting our helpers and guiding them with advice and ideas of how to enjoy our lovely State of Western Australia! Accommodation is private and self contained with aircon, wifi, great food, tv etc.
    Most of the help here is outdoors- in the garden and paddocks, helping keep our property as lovely as it is. We will invite our helpers to join in with our family for celebrations and outings.

    Help

    Generally our helper does 5 hours each day mon- fri and an hour or so on the weekend, but im very flexible with this especially in the hot weather! And if you wanted to take a day off to do something then that’s no problem we can work the hours around it.
    Help is general farm tasks, collecting sticks, making compost, weeding, if you are familiar with horses then there will be horse duties too. Please confirm you are happy to get your hands a bit dirty and have closed in shoes.
