Our organic/biodynamic vineyard, vegetable gardens, farmhouse café and cellar door needs happy, fit, outdoorsy helpers for longer stays min 4 weeks.

Experience the most beautiful farm on the Bellarine Peninsula close to the Great Ocean Road. Our West Coast, waterfront vineyard/winery/cafe with providore vegetable and fruit gardens has hosted happy fit outdoors young travelers for three years and our growing popularity means we are busy all year in the gardens, vineyards, bushland, café, making preserves etc.

On the farm we use biodynamic, organic practices with our grapevines, vegies and fruit and have fabulous gardens looking out over wetlands and the ocean with abundant wildlife and birdlife.

Year round seasonal activities looking after the grape vines, fruit, vegies, chooks, conservation areas, meeting and greeting at the farmhouse café over busy periods, helping with produce cooking and preserving and lots more.... Learn and have fun.

The farm looks out over the Ramsar Listed wetlands and marine sanctuary of Swan Bay to the historic village of Queenscliff. We are 10 mins from villages, 30 mins Geelong and 90 mins Melbourne (60mins train). Also at the start of the Great Ocean Road the Surf Coast famed for Bells Beach. Great accommodation and healthy food provided with bicycles for exploring our local bike paths and historic village. Stays of four weeks preferred as there is a lot to learn. Check out our website and facebook page and you'll see more. www.basilsfarm.com.au.

We have a modern super comfortable house on the farm which is a share house for our family of helpers and I try to make sure there is two to four of you for friendship and companionship but usually minimum three. Views from all bedrooms out over the water.


Please feel free to book to stay later in the year if you know you will be passing through. Cheers - Kim
