  • Description


    We are a retired couple keen for a little assistance around the house and property. My garden has become overgrown so I could usse some help to get it back and productive. My chicken house needs a few modest repairs.
    There will likely be 2 locations for this workaway. The first will be based in Canberra, ACT, and the second on a bush property one hour away from Canberra. We are preparing the bush property to ensure that the natural environment to reduce the risk of bushfire while trying to avoid any destruction that would impact on the wildlife. the property has a fresh watercourse home to platypus. the property supports wombats, kangaroos, wallabies, snakes, na wide variety of birdlife. we would love to share this natural world.

    The workaway would benefit from iving with an Aussi couple, from working in a garden that needs to be attuned to Australian condition, including especially any of the bush regeneration projects that we have.

    I am a volunteer coach in the sport of orienteering and both my husband and I like to do rogaining – a sport where, with a map and compass you visit check points in the bush. While these activities are more limited for me since my injuries, any workaway would be welcome to join us on any of these activities or any bushwalking activities we do.

    I am inspired to do this hosting after having meet a few workaways while travelling in Europe.

    For travelers, this workaway would an opportunity to stop in one place for a period, have reliable, safe accommodation, and get to know some friendly Aussie.

We would like to share that experience with perhaps a couple of travellers interested in this sort of thing. We would be requesting this assistance for about 2 or 3 weeks and see how it goes from there.

    What else ...

    While at the bush block it will be more isolating, but there's plenty to do and we are very willing to help with transports to the local town.
    My husband and I are pretty self-contained. We would expect that we would share some meals but not all.
