Help needed beginning now until the end of June. Looking for a couple or a single traveler.

We are a Wildlife Sanctuary dedicated to the rescue, release and rehabilitation of Australian Wildlife. We raise orphaned and injured wildlife, specifically kangaroos, wallabies, wallaroos & possums, and release them back to the wild. We are a dynamic family who aspires to the dream of self sufficiency and offers a unique experience to share close contact with wildlife. We embrace the opportunity to share our farm and enjoy a cultural exchange with our overseas guests.

We also produce our own Honey and Skin Products made from beeswax.

Your accommodation is a very comfortable private Cottage with a beautiful combustion fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, shower and bathroom. You also have access to a washing machine. We do not have wifi, but mobile reception is good at several places on the property.

Please note that we ask for a minimum stay of 1 month as it is too stressful for our wildlife otherwise.

Your responsibilities are varied. At this time we are needing help with...
• Looking after our animals - chickens, ducks and geese
• Assisting with our orphaned Wildlife - bottle feeding joeys and cleaning enclosures. Basic care for Brushtail and Ringtail possums
• Cutting and collecting firewood
• Tending the market garden after summer harvest

You must be able to work independently, and have a genuine interest in animal husbandry, farm work and Wildlife.

We work for 6 hours per day, 1 day off per week in exchange for all food and your own private accommodation. Organically grown meat, vegetables, eggs, honey and herbs are from our farm. We also have a large salt water swimming pool for your enjoyment on those hot summer days..!

********************************************************************

In general.......We have a market garden which grows our vegetables and herbs, and a small orchard of fruit trees. We also have a variety of friendly farm animals.

The main role of our work exchange guests is to feed and care for our farm animals, assist with general farm maintenance, to help care for joeys and to maintain and tend to the market garden. Additional small farm jobs are seasonal, such as tree planting, mulching, seed sowing, tree netting and firewood gathering.

We expect a VERY HIGH STANDARD of attention toward looking after your accommodation as it is of exceptional standard - your own private house.!
