  • Descripción


    This is a unique opportunity for you to come and live in a museum and use your creativity to make this an even more interesting place to visit.
    The museum is located 19km south of Geraldton and 400km north of Perth. It is open daily between 8.30am and 3.30pm and located within an historic homestead built between 1862-80 which is surrounded by gardens, including a community vegetable garden.
    Accommodation is in a separate wing of the museum building. I can only host single helpers.

  • Ayuda


    Helpers in the past have assisted by translating handouts into French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, Korean and Japanese.
    Others have helped redesign the webpage and museum brochures, or design software for the museum 'teleporter'. Those with artistic skills have decorated garden fixtures and furniture.
    Assistance may also be required to keep the museum open. Also, if you like cooking, that is fantastic. Have a veggie garden, so there is always something fresh to pick.

    Please be aware the museum is located 19km from the nearest shops and there is no public transport available. I do have a bicycle you can use. However, it is within walking distance of isolated beaches. Volunteers must like animals as I have 2 dogs.
    For helpers wanting to improve their English, I hold a Cambridge Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (2001).
