We have a smallholding 10km from the nearest town (Queanbeyan, next to Canberra) where we keep horses, poultry, a pig, sheep, and bees.
We also run a riding school on a nearby property.

We prefer people who will stay at least three weeks, who are able to work independently and learn quickly.

We need help with fencing work, general maintenance, gardening, housework and the animals. You need to be willing to help out with four or five hours work each day,in exchange for your own room and all your meals.

We have bicycles to explore the area, and on days off we are happy to drive you into Canberra.
25 minutes drive from the centre of Canberra.

100k to Cooma - Snowy Mountains region. 140 k from the coast (Batemans Bay)
WiFi available.

Smokers tolerated - just not in the house
Great countryside for bushwalking, trail riding.

You can see a video below our farm and surrounds and some of the things to do in Canberra.
(Grâce à Maxime and Robert!)
