  • Descripción


    We run a mixed farming enterprise just outside Dubbo. cattle sheep chooks and crops.

    We have adult children and would hate to think of them stuck over the other side of the world with no safe place to go - which is why we are offering a safe place for you at this time

    There is always plenty of tasks to be done. Fencing repair to new fencing, painting, gardening (we have a large garden and enjoy growing our own vegetables) maintenance, feeding livestock, tractor work,welding. stick picking, construction, home cleaning and cooking. Lots of space to enjoy and see wildlife

    We have started a vegetable garden as well.. in an effort to become more self sufficient.

    We are farming at the moment - so farm life is busy

    We have seperate basic self contained basic donga accomodation on another property where you will be required to self cater - however groceries will be provided

    Over the years we have hosted many students from all over the world - norway, japan, Italy, german, England, France - we really enjoy their company and stay in touch with most.

    We have a vehicle that would be available from time to time for you to use.

    We would require 5 hours per day for 5 days per week -in return for food and accommodation and internet. Majority of help would be outside in the weather.
    There is no child minding required

    Retirees more than welcome

    If you have your van - plenty of room, power supplied

    Dubbo is a large regional city and has lots to offer in our local area including the zoo, the Macquarie River, Old Dubbo Gaol, fishing, kayaking and sport.

    We offer a fairly relaxed home and everyone is welcome

    Please when you request send us some details about yourself and why our environment appeals to you, where have you been previously as well.

    Why not come for a visit :)
