IMPORTANT -- PLEASE READ CAREFULLY.
Due to changes in the helpx message system there is not enough space to post our list of questions that we ask all prospective helpers.
If you apply to stay with us you MUST include an email address so that we can send our questions to you.

ALL APPLICANTS MUST TELL US THE EXACT DATES THAT THEY WANT TO STAY HERE.

If these requirements are not fulfilled at the first contact we will send you a generic rejection notice.


We have changed our hosting arrangements and details will be sent to all prospective helpers when they apply to stay here.

There are 2 options for hosting available and details of those options will be sent to applicants who may be suitable. The first option requirements are detailed below. The second option requirements will be detailed by email to all helpers who we think may be suitable.

We receive many requests from helpers each week and need people that can reply quickly and accurately to our standard list of questions that we ask all potential helpers.


We are situated on the coast in East Gippsland and due to relatively busy workloads we are happy to host people with accommodation and meals in exchange for 4 hours a day of work to generally maintain our property. Work hours can be flexible to allow for working a full day and having the next day free. We like our helpers to work for the 4 hours a day Monday - Friday, 2 hours on Saturday and Sunday is a day off.
We prefer to do the majority of the work here early in the day, especially in Summer before the day becomes to hot. We appreciate helpers who are able to be ready to work at 8.00 am. If you are the type of person who likes to sleep late in the day then our home is not the place for you.
The majority of the work will be household work and gardening, we are working towards expanding our vegetable garden and preparation for that will be one task. Our small town has limited shopping facilities and is usually a very quiet place so if you are interested in night life and big city attractions then it is not the place for you. There is always some gardening or housework that needs attending to but never any really physically demanding work. We place a fairly strong emphasis on helpers being a part of the household and helping prepare evening meals and to participate in the clean up afterwards. We will only host helpers who want to stay for 2 weeks or for 1 week under our second option.
Accommodation consists of a large bedroom with double bed and a separate bathroom and is best suited to singles, couples or friends who are happy to share a bed. We provide breakfast, lunch and the evening dinner. Breakfast is a choice of toast or cereal and fruit juice. Lunch is normally a very simple meal of salad or sandwiches and the main evening meal will vary according to the day or work commitments. If you are the type of person who likes a "snack" between meals you will be expected to provide your own snacks. Wireless internet is available and of course there are are miles of beaches and coastal scenery to enjoy.
V Line http://www.vline.com.au/home/ train and bus services can be used to get directly here from Melbourne or Canberra.
