    Volunteers helping on a horse farm. We mainly have Thoroughbred horses which we break in, pre-train, train for racing and we also have some retired racehorses, which are used for riding lessons, eventing and showjumping. We are located on 60 acres, 15 minutes from Pakenham.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We will provide all your meals & Wi-Fi. We're also happy if you'd like to cook and share some of your culture with us. If you're not cooking, we always appreciate help cleaning up afterwards.

    We have had a number of backpackers with us over the years and many we are still in touch with today (happy to provide references).

  • Aide


    Plenty of opportunities to ride (if you can already). If not, there are plenty of other tasks to do around the farm such as:
    Feeding/Watering horses
    Mucking out stables
    Helping build/repair/paint fences
    Gardening/Ride on lawn mower
    Help with construction tasks
    Cleaning (House, vehicles, horse gear etc)
    Household duties

    Help is five days a week, two clear days off. We are always renovating something and would love a hand with that if you are interested in building, painting etc.

    We look forward to hearing from you & look forward to meeting soon. Please note, helping us does NOT count towards a second-year visa extension, nor is it paid work.

    Minimum stay is 3 weeks - please do not apply unless you plan to stay for at least this length of time. We are non-smokers and prefer our Workaway helpers to also be non-smokers. If you have any dietary requirements, please notify us in your application. We have had many vegetarians with us over the years and can accomodate this, however we cannot accomodate Vegans (unless you are willing to cook all of your own meals).

    If you are travelling to Victoria and want to arrange your position ahead of time, we can do that, so let us know when you will be here and we can advise if we have a position available.

    Gippsland has some gorgeous areas to see & enjoy – we are about 1 hour from Phillip Island (see the Penguin Parade), 1 hour from Healesville Sanctuary (see native Australian animals), 1.5 hours from Mt Baw Baw (go skiing in Winter), 1 hour from lovely beaches, 1 hour from Melbourne, 1 hour from Walhalla (historic township). We're also right next to the Bunyip State Forest so you can go on bushwalks, riding or borrow our mountain bikes to explore. The walk at Mt Cannibal (around 10-minute drive) is also worthwhile.

    To get here, the nearest train stations are Pakenham (Metro) or Nar Nar Goon (Vline). We can pick you up at either. If you're wanting to go into the city on your days off, we can drop you at the station.

    We love having people stay with us who have a positive, can-do attitude and like experiencing new things. We love sharing meals at night and often playing a game or two together in the evenings. We love good quality, healthy food.
