A unique way to experience Victorian rural life. This Homestay is for people who can live and work independently and enjoy country life.

Due to a prolonged period of illness we are in need of? some help maintaining our country property, surrounding garden and bush.

The house is the highest free-hold property in the Mt Alexander Shire (621m) and enjoys spectacular 360 views of nearby Castlemaine, Mount Alexander and surrounding farm and Bushlands. There are 3-4 bedrooms, open-plan living area, two bathrooms and a well equipped kitchen. It is solar-powered and off the grid with it's own water supply.

The nearest town is picturesque Castlemaine, 12 minutes drive by car or a very steep decent or incline by bycicle. Not for the faint hearted!

We live in Melbourne and will travel between home and the property to supply food, materials and other things required as needed. We can also provide transport to and from Melbourne city on your days off if you like.

The garden work is mainly clearing dead wood, weeding, mulching, restoring retainers & paths and planting. There is also a large irrigation system that requires a complete overhaul.

The house itself needs gutters cleaning, extensive indoor cleaning, replacing windows & doors and installation of a new kitchen, if you are a carpenter. There is also plastering and painting to be done if you have such experience.

We are hoping that a few people will apply so you can have some fun doing this together. We are flexible about the hours you work but essentially 6 hours a day, 5 days a week.

We have previously hosted helpers from UK, France and South Africa who have all been very happy with us and stayed for extended periods. Contact details can be supplied if required.
