    **** Updated 31 July 2022****

    Small family of 3 looking for somebody to help with day to day tasks around the house and yard.

    We are just outside Melbourne but the city is easily accessible by train.

    We are on 2.5 acres and mostly need help around the property feeding and helping to look after animals (chickens, rabbit, horses, dogs, pet sheep) and other odd jobs around the house or yard.

    I also have lots of little projects going on, so if you have any basic building or maintenance skills we could definitely make use of those. Also need to be happy to be around two chatty, noisy, active 10 year old kids :)

    Somebody with experience with horses would be ideal but not essential.

    We live 50 minutes from Melbourne city by train in the town of Riddells Creek.

    4 hours per day (20 hours per week) in exchange for room and meals. You will have plenty of time to explore the local area.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    It’s the ideal place to experience a small town in Australia with easy access to Melbourne city.

    The Macedon Ranges region is located to the north and north-west of of Melbourne and has the largest concentration of natural mineral springs in the country due to its location in a mountainous area formed by volcanic activity.
    The majority of the springs are concentrated around Daylesford and Hepburn Springs, with this area being known as spa country - a centre for natural health treatments based on the therapeutic properties of mineral water. Many springs are located in public parks, allowing visitors to freely sample and bottle the water.
    The towering peaks of Mount Macedon and Hanging Rock are part of a 6 million year old dormant volcano. This area was a popular summer holiday escape for Melbourne's affluent residents of the 19th century as they built lavish mansions with beautiful gardens in this cool forested area.
    Many historic towns in this region have retained their early European influence, offering visitors a unique visual and culinary experience.
    In the region's west are several former gold mining towns including Clunes, where a gold strike in 1851 triggered Victoria's prosperous gold rush era.

  • Hébergement


    You will have your own bedroom with a queen size bed and built in wardrobe.

    All food is included and I usually cook but I do appreciate help as you would do at your own home. Our meals are generally child friendly and do include meat, so if you have a particular diet such as vegetarian you would need to cook more for yourself (we always keep plenty of fruit, veggies, bread, rice pasta etc that you can use).
