Willunga is a beautiful heritage town an hour south of Adelaide, 10 minutes from the McLaren Vale Wine Region, and 10 minutes from Port Willunga beach.

We have a huge and beautiful garden with a swimming pool which is always in need of attention and our old heritage house is always in need of maintenance.

We try to give our helpX guests some cultural experience - such as sailing, horse riding, bushwalking - in exchange for a very mixed range of jobs.

We also own a 160 ha farm in Mt Compass with cattle, horses, bees and a vineyard 60 km south of Adelaide, 15 minutes drive from our home. There is 80 ha of heritage listed native vegetation with a beautiful dam and walking trails. The cottage is a b&b so is often not available, however if it is available you are welcome to stay there also. You can see lots of photos of our farm on our website, and also on our facebook and instagram pages.

There is not a lot of public transport around this area, so it is useful to have your own transport.

Some of the work we would ask you to do includes cleaning, gardening, pruning, cooking, fencing, painting, and general farm work.

We have two private bedrooms, both with comfortable queen sized beds. We also have bikes that you can borrow to explore the area.

Margo is an artist, teacher and former small business owner. She is very creative and always has lots of projects on the go. She enjoys walking, painting, sailing, drawing, gardening and visiting her grandchildren. Mike is a vet and runs the property in Mount Compass and a dairy in Two Wells, north of Adelaide. He enjoys sailing, horse riding, bike riding, and flying his small plane.

We would love to hear from you if you plan to come to South Australia


Cheers

Mike and Margo
