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. Our family has 2 kids (11 & 15).

We can supply you with your own room in separate accommodation (2 bedroom) next to main house. We also will provide all your meals & Wi-Fi, and use of outdoor spa (so refreshing after work or just to chill out!)
We have had a number of backpackers with us over the years and most we are still in touch with today (happy to provide references).
Ce projet peut impliquer des enfants. Pour en savoir plus, consultez nos directives et conseils ici.
Plenty of opportunities to ride (if you can already), or we can teach you if you are interested. If not, there are plenty of other tasks to do around the farm such as:
Helping build fences
Help with construction tasks
Driving kids to / from school
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.
Own room in separate accommodation next to main house.
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.
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.
