Hello out there! We would like the help of two English speakers with a vehicle for about two weeks sometime from June on. Please do not count on coming to us at very short notice, as I am currently unwell and not yet sure quite when I will be ready to have helpers stay.
You would stay in our rammed earth and timber house, with your own bathroom downstairs, and share the rest of the house and the wi-fi with us.
Since we retired from work in Perth we have been living in this lovely, wilder place and travelling when we can, so we enjoy the company of young travellers as well as appreciating your help. Brian was a university professor of Australian History, and I was a language teacher, so am happy to help you improve your English if appropriate.
We would like you to work for 4 or 5 hours a day for 5 days out of 7 Ė days and times off negotiable. Jobs could include wood-oiling, raking, scrubbing the decks or bird-baths, digging, whipper-snipping firebreaks, weeding, bulb planting, mulching, collecting and chopping firewood . . .
And we are always happy to try any foods you like to cook and appreciate being lent a hand around the house with the odd bit of cleaning!
Here, at Gullyfoot, we have a steep hillside above our place where there are kangaroos and emus, and many birds fly down into our garden. We are 25 minutesí drive from Balingup (on Southwest Highway between Donnybrook and Bridgetown) where we have more acres high on the hillside, with sheep, trees and a small cabin and where we work once or twice a week. Just 15 minutesí drive from home is the little forest town of Nannup. From there itís about an hour to Margaret River on the Indian Ocean or to Pemberton in the karri forest with the Gloucester Tree, and not a lot further to Augusta on the Southern Ocean and one end of the Cape to Cape walk track..
The Bibbulmun Track crosses our Balingup-Nannup Road.
Stars and moon are bright.
