    Descrição

    We (My partner Ruby and me (Ross) and our baby daughter Harriet)live on a little property in Central Victoria about 2 hours from Melbourne.
    We have been here for nearly 3 years and are slowly chipping away at different projects from house fix ups to garden projects. Ross's background is in horticulture and landscape design and construction so we will be putting in a lot of effort to the gardens. He also teaches three days a week online. Ruby is a social worker however is currently on maternity leave but returning to work 3 days per week from late July 2022. We also have two gorgeous dogs and chickens.

    Our place is set on the edge of a creek on about 4 acres of land at the bottom of a ridge. We have an old tavern from around 1860 (now a house), a fairly new studio and a bungalow, caravan and workshops on our property.

    Ruby and I are both vegetarians and really like food!

    We are a 5 minute drive the closest town Newstead where there is a general store and a cafe/pub. It is about a 20 minute drive to Castlemaine where you can get a train to Melbourne. We are also 20 minutes to Daylesford, 45 mins to Bendigo & Ballarat. We require all our guests to have a drivers license and be confident to drive in Australia. This allows you to get the most out of living regionally.

    We are happy to host solo travellers or couples. If you have any particular skills/interests we will try our best to utilise these. We are easy going and looking for like minded/easy going and enthusiastic people to share our home with and help us continue to develop our dream home.

    Some of the the tasks you may do:
    - household chores such as washing, cooking, cleaning for our family home.
    - odd jobs such as weeding, mowing, watering garden
    - veg garden set up, general gardening.
    - building outdoor shower/bath
    - other random projects and property organisation.

    All our tasks and projects are for our family/family home.
    You will be provided with accommodation and meals in exchange for 25 hours of work per week. We are flexible about how we spilt these hours for example you may prefer to do 5 hours per day or a full day etc. If we do have specific days we need your assistance we will discuss this with you in advance.

    We are in between Castlemaine (small town in the goldfields) and Daylesford (in the foothills of the great dividing range) which are two fairly popular rural holiday spots in Victoria. There are plenty of hikes/walks, swimming holes, antique/vintage bazaars, cute towns, great cafes, pubs, wineries, weekend markets and local events to explore. We require all guests to have an international drivers license/ or Australian drivers license and be confident to drive in Australia. If you have a car that is a bonus but if not that is ok.

    We have good working internet and happy for work-aways to work online if they need to. We do however have poor phone reception. If you have a newer model of phone you can utilise WIFI calling which means your messages and phone calls work through the internet rather then on the phone reception. Happy to answer any questions if you need to know more.
