  • Description

    Description

    Our two acre property is in the heart of Rutherglen, a 150 year old winemaking region in Victoria, which is famous for its fortified wines and red wines. Our home is a 15 minute bike ride from the famous Murray River, which is a perfect spot for beers, a picnic or a swim. Our garden overlooks nearly 100 year old vineyards and we're a five minute walk to the main street where you'll find cafes, bakeries, wine bars, shopping, groceries and great coffee.

    We have a gorgeous and cuddly border collie dog named Olive and we have more than 20 varieties of fruit trees, a veggie patch and a lovely swimming pool.

    We have a lovely little boy, Alexander, who is nearly two years old. He's great fun, but it means we haven't had the chance to keep on top of our garden, which is why we need your help. I also just recently welcomed our daughter, Elizabeth, into the world, so to say our hands are full would be an understatement!

    We're able to offer a queen bedroom and large bathroom with shower and bath, as well as yummy home cooked dinners, a bike to borrow so you can ride around the wineries and up to the Murray River, and lots of puppy cuddles with Olive.

    In exchange we're hoping to find one or two people to assist with the maintenance of our garden including mowing, pruning, mulching, planting and general tidying. We'd expect 2-4 hours of work per day, 3 to 4 days per week. If it's really hot, then all you'll need to do is relax by the pool! Please note we are a non smoking household.

    Our home is a 3.5 hour drive from Melbourne, and a 6.5 hour drive from Sydney. You can also reach us by train. We are a short drive from other great towns and tourist spots including Beechworth, Bright, King Valley, Milawa, Albury and the main snow resorts.

    We live in paradise and look forward to sharing our little slice of heaven with you!

    Living and experiencing one of Australia's oldest wine regions full of amazing Australian characters and personalities.
