My wife and I live in the historic town of Maldon in Central Victoria, just one and three quarter hours north of Melbourne.
Our house is right in the main street, a short stroll to cafes and shops. It is small, charming town.
We have a beautiful garden that needs a lot of work, including landscaping and planting. We are currently doing internal construction work on a new studio, but before we do that we need to clear out lots of stuff.
We have plastering and painting to do, as well as painting a converted stable, which is a charming self-contained building on the property, which would be your accommodation.
We will provide all meals and give you a good experience and show you surrounding areas.
We enjoy hosting people and giving them the opportunity to experience this unique place.
We have really enjoyed the workawayers we have hosted so far and we are friendly and hospitable people, as you will see from our very positive reviews :)
DIY and building projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
We are dedicated to the idea of a cultural exchange with Workawayers and giving them a taste of life here.
We want them to experience life in our town and surrounding areas and enjoy the simple pleasures of life in the country. We also travel to Melbourne occasionally and know our way around there.
We enjoy eating well and cooking a range of dishes and enjoying a beer and glass of wine at the end of a good day's work :)
In return we need a strong capable person or people with strength, initiative, flexibility and drive and a focus on getting things done
We have a range of building and gardening projects - landscaping and painting
We would love to have someone strong with experience in building/painting/landscaping/gardening
We would be very happy to have a couple or two friends travelling together, as well a single person. We have a private 2 bedroom cottage available
We have our own house and can offer Workawayers their own beautiful, private accommodation in a historic converted stable (see photos) - fully self-contained, with a full kitchen, bathroom, 2 bedrooms, sitting room with TV, wifi and outside deck and garden
Maldon is a small, charming historic town, situated 1 hour and 45 minutes North of Melbourne. Close by fis the larger town of Castlemaine, with markets, cafes and gallery.
The large, historic town of Bendigo is 35 mins away. We would be happy to show you the sights.
