  • Description


    My name is Jill and I live on a rural property in the hills of Perth. My property backs onto the State Forrest so I am surrounded by natural bush land and wildlife.
    I am located approximately half an hour from the city and 40 minutes to the local beaches.
    My property was once a commercial wildflower farm but it has been reduced to a hobby farm.
    We have kangeroos who like to feed on my back lawn and a variety of birds life.
    I have a railway carriage next to my house Offering privacy and space if need.
    There are multiple wineries in the area orchards growing seasonal fruits and beautiful bush walks.
    As my children have left the coup it would be helpful to have someone to assist with daily chores on my 26 acre property and to share the Australian culture with you. I have travelled in my early days around Asia so love to hear stories of your adventures.
    Hope to hear from you
    Jilly 😄

    If you love nature, then you will be a happy camper! Our home is surrounded by forest and even further then that, surrounded by state forest, with bush walks for miles and miles.

    - The local area has a small shop and a lovely cafe ( with great food + coffee!! ) it is about a 2km walk from home

    - A local cider house ( about a 1 km walk ) is very popular in the Perth hills, often having music on weekends, pizzas, yummy meals & a great atmosphere to enjoy.

    - We are only 35 minutes drive from Perth City. There are NO buses or public transport from Pickering Brook, yet there is a bus down to the city from the nearest local town Kalamunda. ( 15 minute drive )

    - Kalamunda has many cafes, shops, food shops, petrol stations, a library, a cultural arts centre & all the modern conveniences

    - Pickering Brook is a small town, consisting mostly of orchards and farming families. There is no " town " as such, only the local store + cafe, so although it is not ' remote' in Australia's terms, it is very rural.

    - We are happy to take you to the bus stations when we are available and to show you around the area, however if you truly want to explore, a car might be your best option.

    - If you want to learn about the Australian bush, healing modalities, nature and a growing holistic business with a big heart, you will be coming to the right place!! Happy to help guests with their English also!
