  • Description


    Hello! We are a family of four, Nat & Mike plus our two teenage kids, Georgia & Josh. We have a farm 20 minutes drive from Albany with cattle & horses (plus our cat!) We have lots of general work to do around the house and farm and need some help to get things done! We are looking for an individual or couple to come and stay with us and work a couple of hours a day (or 2 full days a week) in exchange for accommodation and use of one of one of our cars. Only one day per week if no car is needed. Meals and cooking are negotiable.You will have your own accommodation, separate from the main house, set in its own 11 acres with awesome views and the sound of kookaburras in the afternoon to keep you company! The accommodation has its own toilet, bath & shower, double bed (plus bunk bed), kitchenette and lounge with TV. In the nearby area there are many amazing beaches to explore, the Stirling ranges for great hikes & the city of Albany with many shops & cafes. If you fancy a peaceful farm getaway in the south west, we are the place for you!
