  • Descrição


    We are a family of 3 living in a big stone house on a hobby farm at the outskirts of Melbourne - rated the most livable, exciting, culturally diverse city in the world.

    We have 42 acres (17 hectares) of pasture and bush with 3 horses, 2 Australian Shepherds, a cat and some chickens - and a mob of kangaroos and the odd wombat here and there. We are building a permiculture garden, with a food forest and will be holding a permiblitz on the property in June.

    The project
    We in the last stages of building our 10.3m catamaran which we plan to launch before the end of this year - but we need help! We need to complete the sanding, painting and fit out inside so we can launch it and start sailing it before the end of this year.

    You would have a terrific Australian cultural immersion living with our family and meeting our friends.

    Algo mais...

    You get a bit of everything here. We are at the gateway to the Grampians region, near Daylesford. It is a beautiful wine growing region, with lots to do - horse riding, trekking, rock climbing, and lots of little townships with lovely food and places to explore. And you can easily get into Melbourne either on the train or driving and check out the entertainment and great sites and food of Melbourne.

    We have Australian bush on our place and are surrounded by a huge Australian forest so you'd see kangaroos, wallabies, wombats and all sorts of other Australian wild life.

    Our place is about 15 km away from the local shopping centre and train, and 50 minutes away from the Melbourne.
