Big day Mondays to get picking done then you choose when you want to work after that to get 24 hours done. You don't need experience as very easy and we will show you how. So long as you don't mind a bit of work and getting your hands a little dirty.
We have 4 children so our house is full, but we have a second house. 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom share house. Fully furnished and with everything you should need. All cooking implements supplied. Fridge freezer, Washing machine. TV and DVD player, xbox. Beds sheets, etc.. That way you can have your own privacy. Some 100 metres from our house.

We are happy to help out when we can with a ride if you do not have a car. We take helpers shopping at least once a week. Can catch a bus from near by towns back to Perth also. We also often visit Perth so can catch a lift with us if needing to get back to the city.
Happy to answer any questions by email text or phone.
Wake up to the birds in the quiet country and watch the kangaroos. Enjoy some home grown produce, but still have the beach and city quite close by.
