We are located in the main street of town and situated in the gorgeous South West region of Western Australia.
A short drive away is the major waterfront city of Bunbury which is only a 20 minute drive from our countryside village.
The Hiking Trails and Beaches within 30mins of this location are amongst the best in the world. The arts and crafts in the region are so exciting ; with Music festivals "Bridgetown blues", medieval Festival (August 26 & 27th), as well as cute country markets and outlets producing local food and herbal products for those free spirited souls that enjoy organic foods, earthy adventures and the tribal vibe.
Donnybrook is a major regional fruit growing area, producing many of the worlds finest, apples, pears and avocados. This industry attracts many backpackers and world travelers for the fruit harvesting season each year. We are at the start of what is Termed "The Harvest Highway".
Our Hostel accommodates these travelers so we can get very busy.
We are also renovating and updating the hostel so anyone with trade skills would be great, but not necessary. We need people willing to give it a go! :)
So many amazing campsites and adventures to be had in our lovely southwest so if you have your own transport, it would be advantageous.
Having said that, we do have a couple of coachlines servicing Perth to Albany and all places in between including the City of Bunbury only a 20 minute drive away.
What we need:
We'd ideally like people who can stay at least 3 weeks, helping out 3 hours per day for five days a week. Yup TWO DAYS OFF :) Also, you will not be stuck doing the same things all the time. Two days off will be both weekdays/weekends to give you opportunities to enjoy all the best on offer in this beautiful south of our state.
