WHO ARE WE?
Based a 5 minute dawdle from the shores of Lake Hawea, we have a 10 acre lifestyle block where we live with our 2 children. Grandad lives in a hut over the driveway and helps out in the garden as and when he can. We have two resident cats and it looks like we've inherited another wild one in recent weeks. There is also a dog here who is very friendly and passive but, you must be willing to be adopted into his pack!

We're both originally from corporate backgrounds so, we took the next logical step.... Getting away from it!

Our dream is to develop an off-grid living plan. Currently this includes a 'cottage industry' jam and pickle business, plantings for a small orchard, two outside vegetable gardens and two 11x3m tunnel houses. Much of the produce is used to supply the aforementioned business, whilst the excess is sold locally directly to businesses or at the farmers market. Plans are also being drawn up... more inside

We are currently looking for help with painting, landscaping, gardening, and helping with the house and kids. We can select our projects depending on your skills.

We are a married couple with a 5 year old daughter, a 2 year old son and a baby daughter born in October. We farm sheep and beef.

You will have the opportunity to spend time on the farm but our Helpx jobs won't likely include stock work as experience is necessary. We have a pet dog, pigs, hens a horse and a pony. We would appreciate competent pony and child friendly helpers that could take Maggie for a lead or help groom the pony. We have 7 farm dogs, lots of sheep and beef cows. If time permits Duncan will teach you to shear a sheep.

Accommodation is in a 3 bedroom cottage which you may have to share with other visitors. We try to only have 1 Helpx booking at a time so it is likely you will have the cottage to yourselves however we also have family and hunters to stay from time to time.

Hi - we're booked up until March 15 - so please only apply if you want a place after this date.

We have 1 acre of steep land that we are developing into a permaculture garden and orchard.
At the moment we are terracing the large part of the section with brick walls and steps built with whatever recycled materials come to hand - a very long term project which needs constant help from our wonderful helpers.
We are also developing a fernery and planting out native hedges - so there are fantails and keruru in abundance. Though the development is sometimes hard work, it's creative and fun. We are getting there but we could do with a bit of help from strong fit people whose knees can handle walking up and down a steep garden.
We also have work repairing and painting garden furniture and deck etc.
And if there is anyone out there who can use an old fashioned grass scythe they will be very welcome end of January/ February for a bit of mowing.

We have no car but there are lots o... more inside

*** Not seeking helpers until late April. ***


We are trying Helpx for the first time this summer, having seen it work so well with our neighbours over the past couple of years. It has been good fun and we've enjoyed meeting so many new people from around the world. Looking forward to meeting more, helping them explore the area and at the same time, sorting out our garden and house.

We are located in the countryside near Arrowtown among beautiful NZ scenery with views of the Wakatipu basin. By car, we are 5 mins to Arrowtown, 10 mins to Queenstown Airport and 20 mins to Queenstown.

Originally from the UK, we lived in Australia for 12 years and have now settled in NZ. Our home has 3 bedrooms and is situated on a one hectare plot. We have just completed a home renovation and now we need some help to sort out the garden/grounds and to fully organise the interior.

We are looking for 1 or preferably 2 people (a couple) to help us with landscaping, gardening, paintin... more inside

We are a happy family of four living near the beautiful mountains and lakes of Otago.

We have four beautiful dogs and lots of animals that need caring for. Many of which have been orphaned and hand reared so are very friendly.

It's really important to us that you are prepared to have fun, interact with our children and love and respect animals.

We do not enjoy having visitors constantly on their devices/phones in our living area and there is very limited WiFi.

We also run our cabinet making business 'Wanaka Furniture design' from home.

We ask for 4 hours work a day wood splitting and stacking,cleaning, gardening/animal care/painting plus help with daily chores (meal preparations or general tidy up) in exchange for food and accommodation.
