Our organic/biodynamic vineyard, vegetable gardens, farmhouse café and cellar door needs happy, fit, outdoorsy helpers for longer stays - minimum of 4 weeks.

You will experience a beautiful farm on the Bellarine Peninsula close to Geelong and the Great Ocean Road. Our waterfront vineyard/winery/cafe with provedore vegetable and fruit gardens has hosted happy young travellers for over three years and our growing popularity means we are busy all year round in the gardens, vineyards, bushland and café.

On the farm we use sustainable practices with our grapevines, vegetables and fruit production and the farm looks out over the Ramsar Listed wetlands and marine National Park of Swan Bay towards the historic seaside village of Queenscliff. We are situated 10 mins from Queenscliff, 30 mins Geelong and 90 mins Melbourne (60mins train). We are also at the start of the Great Ocean Road and Surf Coast famed for the surfing mecca of Bells Beach.

Year round seasonal activities include looking after the grape vines and vegetable gardens and tending to our farm animals (chickens, ducks, llamas and sheep). Working in our bushland conservation areas, assisting in the farmhouse café over busy periods and lots more!

We provide great accommodation and healthy food along with bicycles for exploring our local bike paths and historic villages. Stays of around four weeks are preferred as there is a lot to learn! Check out our website and Facebook page and you`ll see more - www.basilsfarm.com.au.

We have a modern comfortable share house with stunning views of the water for our family of helpers and we try to make sure there are two to four people in the house for companionship and the opportunity to make new friends.

Please feel free to book a stay at any time of the year if you know you will be passing through.
Cheers
Kim
