    Description

    We are a farming family with 5 children. Their ages are 14, 12, 10,8,5

    ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
    We love meeting new people and learning about different cultures. I think it is a really valuable learning opportunity for our children also. We have both travelled when we were younger, so we understand what it is like to travel! We are friendly relaxed people. You will be staying in a seperate house with two others, in your own room so you will get your own privacy too.

    If you have a drivers license we do provide a car for our workawayers to use and check some sights around the area.


    Rotorua has so many beautiful things to see and do. Ziplining, luge, gonodolas, thermal hot pools, mudpools,
    beautiful lakes are so close. The beach is an hour away and Hobbiton in 45 minutes away.

    Get in touch - we are looking forward to meeting you!
