We are a self-employed (60 year old) couple running a small sheep farm in Gippsland, situated in the beautiful Strzelecki Ranges, 2 hours from Melbourne and 1 hour from Wilson's Promontory. Our grown-up family have all left home, just leaving us with Coco, our standard poodle. We also grow a few wine grapes - chardonnay - and have a small olive grove and orchard. We are situated 20 minutes drive from the nearest town, so are fairly isolated unless you have your own transport. We can pick up from the local bus station. We regularly travel to Melbourne. Come and enjoy our tranquil setting and fantastic views whilst helping with sheep, gardening, grape vines, general building & farm maintenance and simple housework, when required.
Extremely private self-contained accommodation is provided, along with excellent food, in return for 4-5 hours work per day, including assistance in preparation and clean-up at meal times. You will be expected to keep your own rooms clean and take care of your washing. We have travelled fairly extensively and enjoy meeting people from other cultures and developing friendships. Non-smokers only please.
