Last Updated: April 7, 2019

Now fully booked to mid May. Located in Melbourne's Southern eastern suburbs, only 1 hour by train to Melbourne CBD. We have a hobby farm with cows, sheep, goats, alpacas, dogs, and cats. We are best suited to accommodate a couple or 2 friends travelling together and wanting to stay for 2 weeks or more.
Helper accommodation is very neat self contained studio style cottage, with your own King Bed, Lounge, kitchen, bathroom and meals area. We would welcome anyone with any handyman skills etc. General duties include caring for the animals, gardening, mowing, weeding, fence repairs, painting, wood splitting and other odd jobs.
We can provide accommodation and all meals in exchange for 20 hours per week (or accommodation only for just 10 hours each per week), and can also pay $$$ if you wish to work additional hours. We are 6km from the local shops and public transport, so it is best if you have your own vehicle. There are plenty of options for paid work in surrounding suburbs.
