Hi and welcome to the beautiful Daylesford region! We are Jill and Phil. We have relocated to the picturesque Ballan township from South Australia where we were active hosts for many years.
The property has enormous garden areas that constantly need clearing and tidying and we always have new projects in mind. I (Jill) cook for local cafes and do larger catering jobs and always need a hand in the kitchen.

We grow veggies and have many pets - 3 goats, 1 alpaca, 3 sheep 7 chickens, 6 ducks, and a cat who rules the house. A new Puppy will be due soon as we recently lost our mate Buddy after 18 years of love and tail wags.

There will always be plenty to do - even just a lazy house sit from time to time as we do go back to Adelaide a lot. Ballan is well situated with transport in Western Victoria and there is a train directly to/from Melbourne which takes under an hour. Close by In either direction (within 25 minutes) you have the vibrant and historic Victorian towns of Daylesford and Ballarat. You'll enjoy your own space with a separate bedroom and bathroom for your private use. We are a very sociable couple and would make you feel at home. I prepare all meals and I'm not a bad cook and just love to feed people so you simply won't go hungry! I cater well for Vegetarians.
Couples are preferred but singles are very welcome to apply if they have the skills that suit. We ask for 4 hours a day which includes full board if you're a single visitor or 6 hours combined for a couple (3 hrs each a day). We are very flexible on this so if you so choose to work two full days and have two off, that is up to you. All we ask is you show some willing and initiative.
We can assist with some local transport to train and bus if you don't have a car. Hope to hear from you soon.
