    I'm on the south coast of New South Wales, about thirty minutes' drive from the most beautiful beaches you've ever seen. The nearest towns are Wyndham, Eden and Merimbula. You can get here by bus from Canberra (about 4 hours), Sydney and Melbourne (about 10 hours) or you can fly to Merimbula Airport (much faster!). A car is much easier however.

    My property (about 52 acres) is backed by mountains and a creek, and right next to a big national park. There's a lovely river about ten minutes' drive away and a water hole for swimming that you can walk to. There's also some charming Australian villages in this part of the country. We rely on solar power (so no mains electricity at all, but plenty for our needs) and rainwater tanks. We have internet (satellite) but our data is limited - great for casual internet browsing but not so good for big downloads.

    About the work - it's pretty light. I'd love a little help maintaining the gardens, orchards and property generally, but only a few hours a day - nothing too hard. If you're knowledgeable about (or interested in) permaculture that would be a bonus, as I'd like to establish a self-sufficient garden. I'm also flexible about how we arrange work and time off.

    And about me - I'm a writer, and I like to spend my time (when I'm not working on the property) singing, writing, reading and listening to music. I always have lots of books around - so if books and music are your thing, we'd be a good match. I love a good conversation, and to share experiences and hear about different points of view. I've also travelled extensively in Europe and would love to add to my smattering of European languages.

    I have a friendly kelpie, and there's also lots of wildlife including wallabies, wombats, magpies and birds - in fact, it's a bird watcher's paradise. I'm a vegetarian - so I don't cook meat myself, but I'll happily buy it for you to barbecue.

    You would have the choice of a room in the house, or the use of a caravan, but you'd have to come down to the house to use the bathroom and kitchen.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    If you decide to come here, you'll learn about life on an Australian bush property, Australian native animals and birdlife, and organic gardening. You can pick up local crafts at the markets which are held every week in a different local village, and meet the locals at a variety of pubs, cafes and events (for instance, there are lots of bands and musicians who play local venues).

    I'm looking for some light gardening help around my 52 acre property. You can choose from helping to re-vamp a vege garden, pruning fruit trees,or doing light property maintenance. I could also use some basic building help, for small animal enclosures and similar.

    You'll be staying in a lovely three bedroom cottage. As I'm a writer and spend a lot of time up in my (separate) studio, out, or working around the property, you'll have the place to yourself much of the time. You can also stay in my caravan but you'd have to use the house bathroom and kitchen.

    In your time off (and that'll be most of the time) you can relax and explore the property and national park. You can walk to the rock pool for a swim, but for the nearby river, local beaches and towns, you'll need a car or a bike. The nearest town is about ten minutes' drive away, and the beach is 30 minutes. I can drop you off there for the day, or (depending on your licence, etc) you may be able to borrow the car. Alternatively, you could hire your own car or motorbike, or even go exploring on a pushbike.

    I'm happy to host any pet that doesn't eat the wildlife. But my dog is a bit snarky around small dogs and cats so if pets are best her size (middle sized) or bigger.
