We are a fun family with 3 children (9, 13 & 16), cats, dogs, chickens and horses.

We have recently moved to Beechworth, a lovely little town 1/2 hour from Wangaratta, Myrtleford and Wodonga near the Victoria/New South Wales border. Beechworth is a preserved town from the gold rush era, with historic buildings as well as some great trails for cycling. We are approximately 3-4 hours from either Melbourne or Canberra, 5-7 hours from Sydney.

Our home is a quirky mud brick house on 10 acres with lovely views, and some spectacular sunsets. There is a cycle path to town, or it is about 30mins to walk.

Accomodation while you stay with us is a cute caravan close to the house so you can have privacy but still be involved in the family. The van is cold on winter nights though, so please come prepared.

We prefer helpx guests to stay for approximately one week - we are very happy to negotiate longer stays once you arrive.

Meals are vegetarian (with no meat). We make most things from whole foods. If you enjoy cooking, we love to have help in the kitchen!

We can utilise your skills whatever they are. We ask for approximately 5 hours a day of help, 5 days/week. Guests are expected to help in the kitchen while they are here and to clean up after meals in addition to their official working times.

I am always happy to negotiate tasks, days and hours and I don't push for too much but I do expect a helpful attitude.

We ask that guests are out of bed in the morning and ready to start around 9am so you can enjoy free time in the afternoon.

We have wifi for emails, but no big downloads please

Children are welcome as long as they are respectful of people, animals and property.

This is strictly a no-smoking household (even if you only smoke outside) and we will not tolerate abuse of alcohol or drugs.

We only accept helpx applications with a photo; We love to see your smiling face first. Please DO NOT CONTACT US WITHOUT A PHOTO ON YOUR PROFILE.
Sorry, this happens often and we are tired of saying it.

We all love the cultural exchange that Helpx brings and we will treat you as part of the family while you are here.
