We are an Australian couple, in our 50's, living in rural Victoria. We have recently purchased a 70's house in Gippsland that needs some TLC. We're looking for help with painting, gardening and general work around the house and on our bush block.
We've spent the last twelve months traveling in Europe and had amazing experiences with workaway hosts in England, Ireland, France, Tenerife and Spain. This has given us an great insight into what makes a worthwhile experience for hosts and volunteers. We now have our own projects and we're looking forward to hosting workaway volunteers in our beautiful part of Victoria.
There's many places to see in Gippsland all within easy driving distance, we are close to the great dividing range and the ninety mile beach. There's also several rivers nearby with swimming holes and some great bushwalking trails.

Our bush block is situated in a lovely town where close by there's a good local pub, cafe, bush walking trails and swimming holes. Our close friends enjoy bbq's, cards, boccie, table tennis, cricket and football (when we're not dealing with Covid restrictions) The house in Maffra is about 1Km walk into town which has supermarkets, hotels, cafes and a bus stop. Sale is a large town, about 15 mins drive away, where there is a train service to Melbourne & West Gippsland.
We'd love to show you around parts of Gippsland, it's rural & unique, there's easy access to many beautiful places like Raymond Island and their koala colony, great beaches, 4wd tracks and bush walking trails.
Sean's patient and able to teach carpentry skills. We're also interested in starting a vegie patch and having a few chickens. We eat mainly vegetarian food & enjoy cooking, conversation, playing games and having a drink & a laugh.
