Our 15 acre property, 2.5km from Exeter 26k from Launceston, has fruit trees, berries and a vegetable garden. In the evenings you can see wallabies and native hens.

We are now picking in the orchard but there is also general maintenance on the property. If you can use a chainsaw that would be great but not essential.

Household help always welcome. Stays of 3 to 10 days are welcome but longer by arrangement. Full board in exchange for 25 hours work a week. Accomodation is in our house. Please, we prefer helpers to understand English and be non-smokers. Diet is mixed. Male/female bikes available. We love animals and part of our family are an inside cat and outside dog. We also have chickens, geese and Donald the Duck.

Peter is an electronics technician and loves computers. After lunch he will often drive you around and show you the sights of the Tamar Valley

We are unable to sign 2nd visas and prefer email enquiries. Please let me know if there are any foods or ingredients you don't like or eat. Also, if you change your mind about coming, a short email or text would be appreciated.

Manions buses has a limited 6 day service (not Sundays) which leaves from Brisbane Street, Launceston (opposite the Cinema) and will drop to the door. Buses travel to Beaconsfield and Beauty Point. Tasmania has 2 airports, unless you want a boring 2 hour bus drive from Hobart, you will need to catch a plane to Launceston then the shuttle bus to the city center. There is also the ferry at Devonport if you have a car and we are 3/4 of an hour drive away.
