We are looking for a couple of positive, eager people to help us now right through to the end of the year. We are tidying up the house and garden and there are a lot of different tasks to perform.



Many people say this is one of the most beautiful places in Australia ! The countryside and river are certainly stunning at this time of year!
Willowmere is a country manor on 200 acres of river frontage with a resort standard pool and other facilities and we run a few cattle and horses.

The weather is warm and the landscape is spectacular so we are looking for people to help weeding and planting in the garden and with some farm and household duties. There are all sorts of different jobs (from ironing and general home keeping to mowing the grass, weeding, fixing roads .
The accommodation is in the main house in a resort standard room with KIng or Queen bed. The work timetable depends on the weather and daily farm requirements but usually it's 5h a day/5 days a week (Meals and cleaning after is not considered working in our house). If you are used to driving on the left hand side of the road, there is a vehicle available from time to time to drive around and enjoy what the Capital and its beautiful surrounding has to offer.

The property features a large country homestead overlooking the Murrumbidgee River around 30 minutes drive from Canberra, the nation's capital and only a 3 hour drive by bus from Sydney.
It is the jewel of the neighbourhood and is set amongst many award winning vineyards in a spectacular landscape.
Our purpose is getting the property into shape to hold functions , weddings and 5 star accommodation in the near future. That's why we seek someone who is 'handy' outdoors and experienced indoors.

For after hours and weekends there is a resort standard swimming pool, tennis court, gym and other facilities to enjoy. We have 2 beautiful Maremma dogs, horses, a cat and abundant wildlife for nature lovers and photographers and fish to catch in the river.
We treat our guests with respect and in return we ask for a good honest effort in whatever task they undertake. There are many references for you to read and we have made many great friends from around the world. We share some of the meals together and usually provide some local wines for our guests who join us to prepare and clean up after dinner . Hopefully you like to help cook and go shopping at the fresh food markets. Great food and wine is paramount here !

We encourage our guests to enjoy the spectacular local countryside and amenities. We have pushbikes, scooters and a quad bike. You may even get to fly in our two seat aeroplane.
If you have any special skills and experience we would love to hear from you , especially , electrical, mechanical, carpentry and landscaping experience.
Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements.
Email asap for availability and send your details and as many photos as you can.
