Heya from the family!
We're a family originally from Sydney, moved down to the Victorian country to build a retreat and permaculture farm. Everything about this area seemed to good to be true, but it just keeps getting better!
Each of us are working on many different projects (Permaculture studies, B&B setup, music shows, Choirs, Homeschooling...). We need help with chores so there's enough time in the day to work on the projects.
We're going to need some help:
Chores in the house
Building a bed and breakfast cottage
Building a bed and breakfast website
Gardening (weeding, watering, planting, seed-raising)
Fixing things when something goes wrong (like when we had a blockage in the water-tank for the cows)
If you like cooking, you're welcome to help out in that department too, but I (Nick) also love cooking, so hands ooff! ...just kidding, but let's share huh?
Nick (28): Musician, couchsurfer, wine rep, farmer
Peter (58): Farmer, Project Manager
Donrita (56): Teacher, Choir conductor, farmer
Josiah (14): Student, dog lover
We are 15 min from Bairnsdale Town.
Bairnsdale has trains and busses
Bairnsdale is 3.5h East of Melbourne by train (last stop on the line)
Busses depart to Lakes Entrance from Bairnsdale.
If we're heading to town, you're welcome to join us.
Let us know if you'd like a lift in advance and we'll see if something can be arranged.
Music - there is a suprising decent amount of music around here. Some restaurants have music, Paynesville wine-bar is always having a variety of well-known artists perform (it's great there!), Bullant Brewery (Bruthen) has beer tastings and live music, Many pubs and hotels have music of course (pub rock), Lakes Entrance has great shows and fireworks at NYE
Wine - There are a few wineries around that do tastings
Sport - fishing, some people go hunting deer (they're pests here), cycling
Nature - Den of Nargun (Aboriginal Waterhole), McClouds Morass (extensive wetlands), The Amphitheater (Fabulous lookout)....
