  • Descripción


    We have a small horse farm, and lead a fairly quiet lifestyle. We run a riding school for children and adults, however you won't be involved with that side of the farm.

    We are located in a beautiful valley about 8kms south of Toowoomba, Qld, (120,000 population) but there is no public transportation to get here. We provide a space to park a car or a camper van.

    The city of Toowoomba is renowned for its gardens and trees, and good weather. It does get cold in winter, and hot in summer, but mostly the weather is quite nice.

    We are located only 1km from Preston Peak Winery, and the National Trail (great hiking and biking) is also very close.

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    A friendly Aussie home, with horses! We often spend the mornings on the farm, and then relax in the afternoons with a beer around the firepit. Helpers will have the opportunity to learn to ride a horse if they wish.

    I am also a qualified TESOL teacher, and enjoy explaining the intricacies of the English language. My partner suffers a disease that renders him quite deaf, so speaking clearly and slowly is necessary in order that he can lip read.

  • Ayuda


    Basic gardening and maintenance, some house cleaning, some fence painting, clearing brush, some basic building projects. If you are familiar with building, plumbing, electrical help, please come! :) Probably about 3-4 hours per day of help.

    If you are artistic, we would also love any sculptural art installations to be constructed on the property.

    You have the exclusive use of a shed with 4 beds, and a small kitchen. Toilet and basic shower in adjacent shed. Full (newly renovated) private bathroom in house is also available for your exclusive use. Firepit, country gardens, lots of good walking trails. Payment for food provisions included, but do your own meal preparation and cooking. NO SMOKING OR DRUGS!!

    Another help we would need is to fully line the accommodation shed (mainly a ceiling) and help on the bathroom in the adjacent shed.
