Come and experience living on an Australian sheep farm. We own and live on the farm,currently running 4000 sheep, but are looking at slowing down in life, so most work involves driving around checking ewes and lambs and waters,and moving mobs of sheep with the help of kelpie sheep dogs . We have been hosting backpackers from around the world for a few years to help with work on the farm and around the house but more importantly to understand more about other countries.
Visitors live in the house with us where meals are provided. Work varies with the season as does the time worked, though it is never long or hard, usually working with one of us. We prefer females due to past experiences.
We have a lot of kangaroos and other wildlife, there is plenty of natural vegetation for different types of native birds and animals.
We also enjoy music so have a large museum of musical stuff that needs looking after.
Kingston SE is on the coast so has great beaches when the weather is too hot to work. It is 300 km. from Adelaide but we usually assist with a bus fare for those who wish to stay here for a longer period.
