We haven't got many jobs currently, only fencing, and cobbling, but you are welcome to ask anyway and if we can we will offer you a place.
After spending a year helpxing in Europe in 2012, we are home in NZ and ready to be a host for like minded travellers. We are interested in other cultures and will be happy to share knowledge of our country too. We believe it must be a good experience for all parties.
We are not on a property or farm, however we always seem to have plenty of jobs to do. Depending on your interests and abilities we have lots of jobs to choose from;
* gardening - plenty
* chopping firewood
* handyman jobs - various building skills would be helpful
* painting - when the weather is favourable
* you are welcome to cook too
Daily hours of work will be somewhere between 4 -5 hours. We are happy to negotiate longer days giving you complete days off to explore our region - we can discuss this when you arrive.
Our children have both grown up and are working overseas at the moment. So there is just the two of us and our black lab Stella. She loves people so if you are not fond of dogs this may not be the helpx for you. Murray works fulltime in the bush and Delwyn part time at the local college.
Taupo is in the Central North Island, a beautiful tourist destination on the edge of a big lake, with plenty to do. Check out these websites -
3 hrs south of Auckland by road, 1 hour by air
1 hrs southwest of Rotorua by road
5 hrs north of Wellington by road
from our house-
40 minute walk to town
2 minute walk to bus stop
15 minute walk to the lake
We are really looking forward to having some helpers and meeting new people from around the world.
Please email us with some information about yourself and any questions you would like us to answer.
See you soon.
