We are a youngish couple (early 40's) with two children (Boy - 11, Girl - 9) running a Merino farm just over the hills from Perth, surrounded by national park with plenty of native animals.

Our nearest township is Wandering which has a great country pub (thats it!) and a burgeoning vineyard scene and our service town is Brookton - with a couple of pubs, supermarket, hardware, postoffice & pool. We head into town several times a week and the kids attend school there.

Its a great lifestyle in a beautiful setting not far from the city. We are well travelled and broadminded and would like our children to be exposed to new cultures and languages from an early age. This is a perfect compromise!

Odd jobs could include (but not limited to) sheepwork, general farmwork, building, gardening, housework or childminding - it just depends on what you are capable of and feel comfortable doing.

Our busy times are crutching (April), seeding (May), shearing (August & October), lamb marking (September) and harvest (December). Naturally help at these times is highly valued.

We also have self-contained accommodation with your own bedroom, bathroom and laundry - It's not the Ritz but you can relax & unwind!

We welcome the prospect of shared memories and new friendships.
