WE are a retired couple, easy going, love travel, sport, gardening and nature. We have a large modern house on an 8 Ha property and 2 hectares of garden needing maintenance. The house is set within an old volcanic quarry which provides a unique setting for the garden. The house is a great example of sustainability. We also own a 16 hectare wetland set aside for environmental work.
Help is required for gardening and re-vegetation work at the wetlands. Jobs will depend on the time of year and include using the brush cutter, weeding, planting trees, watering young trees, pruning and domestic jobs like stacking wood. If you don't want outside work, we can always use domestic help. We usually work about 4-6 hours work for 5 days a week.
We offer a separate comfortable living area, separate bedroom, bathroom, wifi and all meals with us. Since we are retired restaurant owners, you will eat well!
We offer our helpers a holiday experience by showing them tourist attractions, eating at a local restaurant and getting to know the area of Australia.
We live in a rich farming area, 15 minutes drive from the city of Colac; 2 hours drive / train from Melbourne. The region is South West Victoria and we are one hour from the Great Ocean Road - we will take you there.
The photos are of the house [a few years ago!], wetland and nearby area.
Summer time [January and February] can be very hot and dry; also flies can be a nuisance. Spring and Autumn are best.
