FACILITIES and FUN
Located 50 minutes from Sydney, on the Hawkesbury river at the foot of the Blue Mountains. We have a 20 acre farm, loads of animals, kids, 12m swimming pool, BBQ area on the river with rope swing, hammocks, boat ramp, canoes. We also have motorbikes, quad bikes, push bikes. Our animals include ducks, peacocks, chickens, geese, horses, two cats and two lovely, friendly dogs. We have 4 young kids aged between 10 and 15. We are a very active, fun and welcoming family.
If you are looking for somewhere to try cooking, gardening, animal husbandry and smallholder farming, instead of battling with other backpackers for hostel bunks... this could be the place for you. We`re close to a number of beautiful national parks, including Blue Mountains and Wollomi and in the middle of the beautiful Hawkesbury Valley.
We are 5 minute car ride from Windsor Station which is a 55 minute train trip from Sydney CBD or 50 minutes from Sydney CBD by car up the M2 motorway.
MINIMUM 3 WEEK STAY REQUIRED. HAPPY FOR LONGER STAYS.
WE ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN MOTIVATED PEOPLE...
WE LIKE TO INCLUDE YOU AS PART OF OUR FAMILY AND WE WILL GO OUT OF OUR WAY TO HELP YOU WITH YOUR TRAVEL PLANS, ADDITIONAL ACCOMMODATION AS WELL AS HELP YOU FIND WORK IF REQUIRED.... BUT WE EXPECT YOU TO WORK AND BE MOTIVATED DURING YOUR STAY WITH US. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO ASK YOU TO LEAVE IF WE FEEL YOU ARE NOT MEETING YOUR OBLIGATION TO US.
We tend to be booked some time in advance.... so first with request will secure booking.
UNFORTUNATELY WE ARE TOO CLOSE TO SYDNEY FOR WORK ON OUR FARM TO QUALIFY AS RURAL WORK FOR A SECOND YEAR VISA.
THANKS... Andrew :)
