  • Description


    Our farm is a picturesque 120 acres family farm on the Great Ocean Road. We produce lambs, wool, and daffodils. We sell our products at the local Apollo Bay community market

    The farm has lush pastures, a private waterfall, rain forrest gullies, a secret beach, and spectacular views for miles over nearby towns and coastline. We are members of the local Regenerative Farmers Landcare group and our farm practices are changing to meet the Landcare standards. Spring is a busy time and help is needed with this regenerative farming project. Located a few kms from the town of Apollo Bay it is the best of a rural working experience, beach side holiday, and a nature retreat.

    Come for a few days or stay for a week. There's plenty to do and your help would be appreciated.

    We have a Workawayer booked for late October to help with - rounding up sheep, vaccinating and tagging lambs, roustabout for shearing, tidying up the farm shed, making fence stiles, planting the vegie garden, connecting water troughs, clearing weeds from the waterfall track, and helping at the local community market, and other general farming activities. Depending on how this goes, we may need some additional help in November, so please feel free to enquire with us.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Helpers can explore the path down to the waterfall, rain forest, natural bush, and hillside landscape with spectacular views. Other options are walking along the beach, relaxing on the deck overlooking the ocean, and listening to the waves. Apollo Bay township has two very good pubs (hotels) usually with live music, a weekend market, a shopping strip, a fishing harbour, a public golf course, a few churches, and beautiful sandy beaches. It's about 8 kms into town so if you don't have a car the hosts are happy to drive you in and collect you when you're ready to come home. The Otway Ranges and Great Ocean Road is a beautiful part of South West Victoria.
