Welcome helpX travellers.... We are a happy Australian family.

We would love some help at the moment
! 2 friends would be perfect !!

We have been part of helpx for over 10 years now and we really enjoy meeting everyone who comes to visit us.

We own a wine cellar door Restaurant where we have LIVE music and make Wood Fired Pizza's.
We have 3 children who love meeting our travelers. Lachlan is 17,Ashton is 16 and Indiana is 12. We are just over 2 hours east of Melbourne in East Gippsland

V-Line.com.au gives you a current train/bus timetable.
You take the Melbourne-Bairnsdale train line and link up with the coach to Maffra.

We can offer travelers regular work all year round, helping out in the vineyard as well as gardening, weeding, and general housework.
We need help especially around meal times and tidying up after meals.
You would enjoy the privacy of a new clean room with queen size bed and private bathroom during your stay! Plenty of kangaroos appear at sunset!! **Helpers with laptops, we have satellite wifi wireless connection.** We look forward to sharing lifetime experiences with many more help exchange travelers.
We prefer no vegetarians,sorry,
CHEERS
