We are interested in finding a helper(s) to assist us look after our property - helping in the vege garden, bush, fencing and building maintenance and with housework.

We are a registered cattle property but we have sold most of our cattle recently due to the very dry conditions.

We are located in an open forest and temperate rain forest area in the Coal River wine region of Tasmania. Our property has some hills and includes a secluded and beautiful little rain-forested valley with tall trees, a dense under-story and ferns. This area is known as a Devil nursery and we have a healthy Devil population. We also have quolls in the area. There are also plenty of wallabies, wombats and other native animals.

As a retired couple and are finding it harder to look after our property. We love having younger people around us again since our own children have left home however we only accept a few helpers in any one year.

Preference is given to helpers that are non-smokers and all helpers must have travel insurance. We provide a safe and happy working environment.

Our house has a nearby, cosy little 2 room farm cottage in which helpers sleep. It has a separate lounge with a TV/video and other facilities. We have Wifi broadband.

The Coal Valley in which we are located has plenty of wineries and is a major food growing area and we are lucky having wild forest areas nearby.

We are close to the airport (1/2 hr) and 7km to Campania and 11km to Richmond, and there is a regular bus service from Campania to Hobart (about 40 minutes to Hobart).
