  • Description

    Description

    We live in Mallacoota, a small town which sits in the middle of the Croajingolong National Park halfway between Melbourne (525kms) and Sydney (640kms). With a population of only 1000, it is one of the most beautiful places in Australia, known as the Wilderness Coast and is a World Biosphere Reserve. Deserted beaches, heaps of wildlife, and an inland lake system with both inshore and offshore islands combined with an almost Mediterranean climate.

    Our three girls ride their bikes to school, care for 25 chickens, the rabbit and 5 guinea pigs, 2 dogs and a cat, and groom and ride their 2 horses. We need help looking after the animals, the stables, the food garden and the orchard. Other tasks include mowing, weeding and general maintenance around the house.

    Weekends are varied, sometimes campfires on the local beach to hiking, diving, caving, biking, boating, fishing and hunting.

    Cate and I work full time so looking after the property without help is challenging. We are after volunteers to help with general maintenance, mowing, gardening, cleaning, firewood collection, and help with cleaning up after meals. If you enjoy cooking feel free.

    Hébergement

    We can offer a room with two king singles (the beds are really good) and a WIR and shared bathroom. Don't be surprised if you wake up with an Eastern Grey Kangaroo or Red Necked Wallaby looking in your window.

    Autres infos...

    Please tell us your age, your degree of spoken English (not so good/ fair/good etc) and something about yourself as
    helpers become part of the family. We spend a lot of time down the beach, hiking, bike riding, caving, boating, fishing, hunting, and watching a good movie in front of the fire at night with the kids.

    Feel free to borrow one of the bikes and explore the region on one of the numerous bike paths. There is good transport from Melbourne which takes about 8 hours, or Sydney which is a little harder. Both Cate and I have traveled extensively and know what it is like to travel and live in another country.
