    Descrição

    Spend some time with our family on a farm in eastern Victoria, in the beautiful Gippsland Lakes region.

    We don't mind if you come as an individual or couple to enjoy a stay with us including all meals and accommodation - you get your own self contained accommodation!

    We have three children (13, 11, 9) so there is plenty of interacting with them - and they are fun! The farm is a lovely old beef farm in eastern Victoria, about 3.5 hours drive from Melbourne.

    On the farm we currently have cows, sheep, goats, chickens, plus a dog and cat. It's a lovely place to live and also keeps us very busy alongside our other work commitments. Our Workaway volunteers help us keep on top of things around the house, farm and in the garden, whilst enjoying a taste of Aussie family life, in the country.

    We've lots of different things you can learn and help out with (the reality of living on a farm is you never really catch up!). We'll help you settle in and become familiar with the tasks and/or tools required, but just bear in mind that our own work commitments require you to work independently most of the time. Kim manages an accommodation business in the local area, and has a home office so is around quite a bit.

    An extra pair of hands to help out with farm projects and general household duties is always welcomed. This could include working in the veggie garden, orchard, building a greenhouse, fixing broken stuff (kids just do that) and a mixture of farming jobs i.e. fixing fences, moving cows, or tractor work (chopping wood is also a regular task around 6 months of the year!).

    Staying at least 2 weeks is ideal, but get in touch if you're interested in a shorter or longer stay and we can let you know if this is available.

    If you're catching public transport, you can travel to Bairnsdale by train (from Melbourne) and we will meet you at the station. From there it's just 25 minutes to our farm.

    We are a friendly, welcoming family who value the mutual benefits that come from being Workaway hosts. We are active members of our local community, and are confident you will have a fun cultural experience with us!

    We're an easy going family, used to welcoming and hosting people from different cultures for over 5 years now. We can offer you an enriched experience of living on a rural farm in beautiful countryside, as part of an Aussie family. We'd love you to share some of your language and culture with us too!

    Acomodação

    People stay on the farm but in a separate barn-house that is only 50 meters away from our house. The barn-house has a queen bed, bathroom, TV & DVD player, movie selection and beautiful views overlooking a paddock. It's very quiet and comfortable!

    We live just 15 minutes from the beautiful coastline known as 90 mile beach, and the popular tourist towns of Lakes Entrance and Metung. The Gippsland Lakes are just 4 minutes drive from the farm, where you can fish, kayak or join us for a boat ride some time (living where we do we've got watercraft activites covered!). If you like being outdoors then it's a beautiful area to spend time in. There's also great mountain bike tracks just 5 minutes from where we live and you're welcome to borrow our bikes.
