Located in Melbourne's Southern eastern suburbs, only 1 hour by train to Melbourne CBD. We have a hobby farm with cows, sheep, goats, alpacas, dogs, and cats. We are best suited to accommodate a couple or 2 friends travelling together and wanting to stay for 4 weeks or more.
Helper accommodation is very neat self contained studio style cottage, with your own King Bed, Lounge, kitchen, bathroom and meals area. We would welcome anyone with any handyman skills etc. General duties include caring for the animals, gardening, mowing, weeding, fence repairs, painting, wood splitting and other odd jobs.
We can provide accommodation in exchange for 10-15 hours per week per person (a few extra hours and we will provide all meals too). We are 6km from the local shops and public transport, so it is best if you have your own vehicle. There are plenty of options for paid work in surrounding suburbs.

You have your own private space on our property, but we will invite you to share the occasional meal or drinks with us (normally once a week). If we have guests for dinner, you will generally be invited to share the festivities and have options to meet and discuss with others. we are non-smokers, but enjoy a drink or two, and like to share travel experiences and hear your plans/adventures. Some helpers have also found paid work nearby and stayed for extended periods.
The work is fairly varied and not too arduous. General gardening, mowing, weeding, wood splitting or stacking, feeding the animals and other odd jobs and/or projects as needed. Pet minding if we are not at home.
Fully self contained cottage, fitted out with everything you could need. King Bed, all linen, kitchen, lounge space, flat screen tv and access to large dvd collection, bathroom, washing machine.
