Our property "Glendara" is about 4 and a half hours midway between Melbourne and Adelaide and is situated on the Glenelg River with rolling hills, red gums and lots of birdlife and kangaroos.

We are sheep graziers with a little bit of cropping each year, mainly to renovate pasture. We also have a 2 bedroom cottage on our property that we run as a B&B.

Helpx workers with or without farming experience would be welcome at our property, but experience in rearing calves or lambs could be useful! At the moment our ewes are lambing, so checking all the lambing paddocks is a daily job. We will be buying some dairy calves in the next week or so.

There are always a variety of jobs Helpx workers would be able to assist with....helping Geoff with day to day farm jobs or helping Cherryl keep up in the garden or with some general housekeeping.

We love meeting people and have a big home that allows for helpers to have their own bedrooms and bathroom, and an in-ground pool for summer.

We welcome anyone who would like to enjoy an Australian farm experience.

Helpers do not need a driving licence but it's handy if you have one! (We can arrange to meet you at the nearest town if you don't have a car).

Some things to do and see in the area:
Visit Mt Arapiles, one of the finest climbing venues in the world located about 40 minutes drive.

Visit the World Heritage caves at Naracoorte about 90 minutes drive.

Watch a local game of football and netball on Saturday, or walk down to the river and watch the abundant birdlife.

We look forward to sharing our beautiful farming lifestyle with interested HelpX people,
Geoff & Cherryl
