  • Description


    My wife and I have recently moved from the city to a country property 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 paving. We are currently constructing a cottage on the property, as well as completing work on a new studio.

    The work required is helping to build two decks, paving and landscaping, replacing a verandah, roofing, renovating an old studio (plastering and painting) and fitting out the new studio.

    We can offer you your own private accommodation in a charming historic converted stable.

    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.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    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
