*** Looking for an outstanding individual who loves nature and animals, vacancy available now. Would particularly like a person with previous farm experience. Farm duties include: looking after house and garden, horses and domestic pets, and assisting the farm manager with livestock and farm maintenance as required. Equestrian experience highly regarded. Farm experience and a clean drivers license also desirable. We require the most responsible, trustworthy people, with a strong work ethic.***

Start date now

We have a 300 acre working farm in Victoria's beautiful western districts, 1 hour from Melbourne CBD, close to Lorne on the Great Ocean Road. A direct train runs into Melbourne via Geelong.

The livestock are sheep and Black Angus cattle (who are primarily looked after by a farm manager). All animals are grain-fed, antibiotic-free and free to roam.

A person looking for a gap year experience is required to help out with general duties around the property and farm-sit when the owners are not there.

Duties would include:

Feeding, grooming and exercising 2 Australian quarter/stock horses and keeping their stables and paddocks clean.

Feeding and exercising the domestic pets (4 lovely dogs and 2 cats)

Feeding chickens and collecting the eggs

Any gardening/vege patch input would be well received.

Accommodation is in a lovely bungalow adjoining the main homestead. Meals are provided and there is also the option to self-cater. Wifi is available.

Driver's licence preferred, as is farm/agricultural experience, especially with horses. Love of animals a must.

Help with second working holiday visa available.
