We are looking for a couple of helpers to help out and look after our farm animals. Can qualify for 2nd (second) year visa.

Forest Estate is a 20 Acre Olive Grove with 2,000 Olive trees and a variety of fruit trees, plus the usual veggies and a selection of farm animals. The Olive Grove is run on organic principles in an arid climate.

Specifically at the moment work includes whipper snipping, gardening, pruning, clearing clippings and fencing repairs. Some of this requires heavy lifting and use of equipment.

This is a great opportunity for you to experience a real slice of rural Australia, add some days towards your second year visa and earn a little travelling money at the same time.

We usually like people to stay a minimum of two weeks so we can work and complete a project. We currently have two places available.

There is a trial period to make sure we are all compatible, during this time you will be mentored through the tasks undertaken. You will get the most from your stay with us if you are hands on.

We don't have wifi internet, but we are in range for Telstra 3G network.

The property is surrounded by bush backing on to the Western Creek State Forest, 3kms from the Gore Highway, halfway between Millmerran and Goondiwindi. We are approximately 25 minutes drive from town, so if you don't have your own vehicle then there is a bus service to Millmerran and we can collect you. We share meals and have a mixed diet but can not cater for true vegetarians. We are a NON-SMOKING premises. Please only apply if you feel you are suited to working in a rural environment.
