We have some rooms ready now ! 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.

Summer is here, the weather is warm and the landscape is spectacular so we are looking for a few people to help weeding and planting in the garden and with farm and household duties whilst they enjoy the benefits of staying at a high class resort style home. There is also some painting and carpentry works as well as ironing and general home keeping too. Can you do rural fencing or drive a tractor? Are you a good cook , housekeeper or painter ?
All varieties of the best quality food, wine and accommodation is included as well as use of a vehicle from time to time if you want to drive around and enjoy what the Capital and its beautiful surrounding has to offer.
We are also seeking people in the week up to and including March 11th when we are hosting our first wedding here. We can pay some money for people to assist with serving drinks and other things.It is ideally suited to people who have bar experience or worked on a property, lodge or a large home before. (not essential if you are a quick learner).

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 need 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 very well 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 as well as a couple of canoes to explore the river. 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 building, electrical, plumbing, painting, mechanical, carpentry and landscaping experience.
This a beautiful part of the world and you won't be disappointed. We are looking for someone from now through to end of April or longer.
Email asap for availability and send your details and as many photos as you can.
