Our place:
Ours is a beautiful property in the voluptuous hills of South Gippsland. We have an established orchard, a dog, chickens, three sheep and visions for a more productive, sustainable garden. Our home is a unique mudbrick pole house, cosy with space to be comfortable. We are surronded by dairy farms, birds and lizards.

We are a few minutes' drive or a 20 minute walk from the centre of town (supermarket, bakeries, post office, cafes), 20-30 minutes drive from beautiful beaches, weekly markets, national parks, and just over 1 hour from amazing Wilsons Prom. Buses run direct (2 hours) Korumburra to/from Melbourne several times a day.

We have bikes, musical instruments, mobile phone reception and WiFi in the main house.

We are a couple with two children (7 and 11 years old) with lots of ideas but not enough time. We work and study, surf and make, speak some French, love friends and try to live sustainably and fairly.

One or two kind, honest, motivated, fun, fit souls to help around our home and property. Our needs vary depending on our priorities and your skills, but you need to have lots of initiative and be happy to work around the house as required (cleaning, cooking, kids) and on the bigger outside jobs (eg. weeding (lots!), brushcutting, woodchopping, mowing, pruning, mulching, sorting, painting, fencing, maintaining).

In exchange for your work and skills, you will sleep in a beautiful mudbrick studio (see pictures below) with flexible bedding, kitchen and bathroom. You can watch glorious sunsets out your window, go exploring and enjoy the space. You are welcome to share main meals and as much time as you like with us in the main house.

We happily cater for vegetarians, vegans and omnivores.

Current availability: We are looking for Helpers to work with us for stays of 2-5 days - consider a stopover on your way to exploring this fabulous region... We are flexible and happy to negotiate hours/days (based on an average 5hr work/day.

* You will need to provide your passport details and proof of traveller's insurance on arrival. Please ensure you have clothes and shoes suitable for outdoor work.
