On the properties are 50+ acres of vines for wine production. A small amount of fruit trees, ornamentals, and vegetable gardens scattered around the buildings.

We try to be as clean and green as possible. As of January, we will hopefully not have to apply any more sprays until next spring. Surrounded by Native Bush with lots of kangaroos, birds, and other wildlife hanging out on the property.

Currently, the only animal on the property needing looking after is our old buddy, a dog, who is a blue heeler cross.

Beautifully located about 1/2 way between Dunsborough and Margaret River. We are also quite close to Cowaramup and Busselton. Pickup (if needed) can be arranged from any of the 4 locations previously listed if enough advance notice is given.


Help is Requested with the following:


Vineyard: netting, pulling wires, hedging, picking, weeding, fixing wires, fixing posts, checking irrigation, composting and pruning.

Garden: watering, weeding, establishing more veggie patches, composting, pruning, netting.

General Maintenance: fencing, cleaning, carpentry on old relics, cutting wood, and carrying water.

Winery/Cellar Door: cleaning, maintenance, bottling, labeling, gardening, being friendly and helping make the place look nice.

In exchange for working about 4 days, approximate hours of 8am-430pm; we provide food/wine (cook your own for most meals), and accommodation in separate building for a full 7 days.



Lots of exciting beaches, caves, food sources, wineries, breweries, and chocolate makers very close by.

Although Coverage is limited, Internet and Mobile signals are usually available. Nevertheless, people would need to be prepared for quiet country setting, away from most modern entertainment.


Prefer 1 week minimum commitment.

We can help people seeking to fulfill part of their 3 month rural farm work requirement for their 2nd year visa extension.

Cheers,
Loren
