We run a small Organic Garlic Farm on top of a hill with great views overlooking the Manning Valley and River. The east side of Mitchells Island is flanked by a beach on the Pacific Ocean. We're only half an hour from Taree, 20mins from Old Bar, we're only 4 hours north of Sydney by road or 6 hours by Train.

We are preparing to plant this years Garlic crop in mid March and general maintenance around the property.

We need either couples, or group of friends for 1 to 4 weeks. We would love to hear from you.

We would expect at least 5 hrs per day over 6 days per week, in exchange for food and accommodation.
We can no Longer sign for a 2nd Year visa, as from September 2015 there are new conditions.


You will be treated as one of the family. As a helpxer/wwoofer you have your own cottage with your own bedroom and shared bathroom and kitchen with any other helpers. You can create your own meals when you wish and or dine with us in our house for the main meal of the day. All food provided, So you need to be able to cook or at least willing to learn.

Accommodation is a really lovely separate Cottage overlooking the river and there is access to Laundry facilities and the Internet.

We do prefer people with their own transport if possible, however, we are flexible about it, we can help with some transport.

We love music, movies and good food. We have pets cat and 2 dogs. Bicycles, Dartboard and Pool table, Piano, books and movies are available.

We look forward to hearing from you,
