Small hobby farm just 5kms outside the town of Deloraine in the north of Tassie. Deloraine is a farming/tourist town located on the way to Walls of Jerusalem and Cradle Mtn National Parks and near the Mole Creek caves. Public transport is available from Launceston or Devonport to Deloraine.

The farm is owned by myself and Pete. We have a large 3 bedroom house which is also occupied by several very friendly indoor cats. Guest bedroom has a double bed and is kept cat free.

We are still slowly establishing our farm, currently working on possum proofing vegetable garden beds, fencing for goats and poultry, pallet constructions and weed control.

If people have the skill or the desire we are also keen to put in a small mountain bike track at the back of our property :).

We are offering a home stay arrangement with meals in exchange for some assistance with gardening, weeding, landscaping, fencing, and general maintenance work.

Pete and myself both work part time with varied shifts throughout the entire week. There will definitely be some free time on the property to relax or to seek out the resident wildlife with echidnas, wombats, wallabies and even the elusive platypus are nearby.

Own transport is useful although buses and lifts to Launceston can easily be arranged. We have 2 basic push bikes available to be used for those who are keen to explore on 2 wheels.

Length of stay is 2 weeks maximum (longer may be negotiated)

Currently looking for people happy to do some house sitting over the Christmas period
